I went to lunch today with a lesbian friend of mine. She recently posted a blog entry in her blog about embracing your inner frat boy. I have more then embraced mine. My inner frat boy is front and center for at least 4 hours a day 5 nights a week. But really he is around 99% of the time.
But today my inner frat boy got a real treat. It seems my lesbian friend has a new lady in her life. While I sat and listened to her tales of her new conquest my inner frat boy was at the edge of his seat. The stories of a new romance, lust and all that comes with a new lady love made me miss my active frat boy of old. But knowing that I am not willing to give up one second of my life as it is I was happy to settle with living vicariously through my friend.
When lunch was over I decided to walk back tot he office and I passed a store that had an item in it that I thought Iris would like. Nothing big, just a little something thoughtful. So I went in and bought it. I think my inner frat boy was reminded that even though something new is fun there is nothing a wonderful as what is tried and true.
