  • Michael is watching my deepening involvement on Cowbird.

    Not involved himself, however. Except in as much as I always get his okay before posting anything that includes him. Those are the only stories he's heard...until today.

    Since we live in a two-person household, at times, it can be rather intense. Thus, we each do the best we can to give each other respectful space.

    This afternoon when he got home from college classes and work, I asked him if he'd like to hear the sprouted story, "I know what a Lesbian is..." from "Did you know I'm Black?"

    He loved it! How do I know? First, he listened. Secondly, at the end, with an enthusiatic smile, he said, "Yeah! Grapes!"
