Jacob, 29, kind of a writer, playing for the other team, like to pretend my boots & I are vegan.

Also, while at the mechanic’s, a lady customer came up to the counter and started talking about how she’d just completed gun safety training and had a .45 in her purse.
"Sometimes, I don’t load it because I’m always afraid that I’ll be grabbing for lipstick and accidentally fire it."
An employee asked, “Which way is it pointing?”
"Oh, to that side, but I’ll get it out of the way," she said, swinging her purse to hang it from her shoulder, gun supposedly aimed right at my face during the swing. I ducked into the lap next to me.
Spent my afternoon at a car mechanic’s.
In the one office, two employees were watching loud “caught on video” type news clips of people shooting themselves or others or both. The narration boomed:
A woman in Florida shot her son at a gun range…
A Brazilian man accidentally shot himself with a harpoon…
Man shots self when left in interrogation room…
Each time a new employee walked in, someone would say, “Oh, you have to watch this…” and they’d play the line up again. I looked at everyone else in the small waiting room, thinking someone would at least look up in disgust or irritation. But no.
Then they played a long video of the rescue of that guy found alive under a tug boat over and over again. Just the reverberating sounds of beeping and someone breathing from a tank for 7ish minutes, then someone saying “He’s alive!” like Dr. Frankenstein. I expected to hear a gunshot follow.
One of the employees said, “I bet when the rescuer grabbed him, he thought it was Loch Ness” and two others laughed and agreed with him.
Loch Ness? Really?
Daily wondering: will sleeping with my head between my laptop and phone cause some kind of health problem?
Men at urinals beside me bathed in cologne / Why did I drink so much water?
Oh, I thought I was going to be dating Dustin Lance Black after I won an Oscar for my screenplay adaptation of my award-winning novel.
And I’m not even that attracted to him but I like that he grew up in Texas.
Well, I was looking for an excuse to date Xavier Dolan after I won an Oscar for my screenplay adaptation of my award-winning novel, so all is still well.
Sometimes, I wish I were bisexual. Wonder what it would be like to be as sexually and romantically attracted to women as well as to men. Of course, I could force myself to try it out but something is lost that way. Really, I’ve also fantasized about being Virgina Woolf’s Orlando, falling asleep to unexpectedly wake up a different gender (and, at times, a different sexual orientation along with). Seems like there’s just much more experience available that way. But…stuck being a man who loves men. It’s not so horrible, though. I could just like my men one way instead of being attracted to all sorts of male presentment. That limiting would really be a drag.
I was so worried when meetup.com suggested that I join a “Black Non-Believers Club” but whew it’s for atheists, not racists.
