I don't support your decision, sir.
I would like to take this moment to acknowledge my wonderful and amazing sister, Melissa.
She made a comment to me today about how I never talk about her on the blog and I assured her it was nothing personal. I have many important people in my life I don't talk about on here--I was really just protecting your anonymity Melis. But if you want your life all exposed on the internet, then I shall speak about you much more often. Since it's "call in sick to work if you're a 'mo" day, I would like to tell you a sweet story about my sweet.......nice......hmm...no.....how about....um....complex, sister Melissa.
It was the Spring of '07, I was dating Kelly again, and things were going really well this time. Melissa was coming to Utah for a visit and I had made the decision that I was going to tell her I was gay. She was 16 at the time, and that was the age I told my brother as well, and I felt like she was mature enough to handle it (please, like she didn't already know. I had been teaching her Britney Spears dances since she was 7). We went out to breakfast with Kelly and after I dropped him off it was just she and I. Our exchange went something like this:
Brian: So you know Kelly?
Brian: Well...I'm kinda dating him.
Brian: And he's kinda my boyfriend.
Melissa: Okay...so you're like, gay?
Brian: Pretty much.
It was at this point that she started crying. And I felt so bad! I was like "oh boy, here we go..."
Brian: Oh no! What's wrong?! It's okay! I'm still me!
Melissa: (through tears) I just don't want you to think that I love you any less.
Is that not the cutest thing you've ever heard?! It's the reaction every homo wants to hear from their family and I'm so lucky to have two of the most amazing, accepting, and loving siblings out of anyone I know. I love you Melissa!
There. I told you I loved you in a public forum. Now can I go back to mocking you every chance I get? Thanks. :)
