I've written previously how Wendy and I just don't know that many other lesbians here in our corner of suburbia. I've mentioned the one lesbian couple with whom we actually are sort of friends. But we are not particularly close to them. Exchanges like this sum up why:
Me: Do y'all read much?
She: No, not much.
Me: We are really looking forward to the start of baseball season.
She: We just don't do sports.
But there are some topics we can discuss:
Me: Last week's episode of The L-Word was pretty hot.
She: We are so glad Dana is going to hook up with Alice! But what is up with Alice's hair?!
Me: I think they all have bad hair, but I agree Dana and Alice make a cute couple! Dana has a smokin' body!"
While I value the limited relationship we have with this couple, I'd like to try having lesbian friends who have things in common with us besides just being gay.
