Classes ended on the 6th and I took off for Downeast Maine. It was beautiful, not that cold, and very restful.
While I was gone, young son Ben was busy. He applied to be on an MTV show about kids with gay parents. You know, MTV, which started when I was in college and ran the same three Michael Jackson videos over and over. Oh, and the Flying Seagulls, "I ran..." The one that has no music videos anymore, just television shows.
Reality television shows. Not my favorite form of television, although I did watch some of Mob Wives last night with Ben. Pretty boring.
It's a little odd. All my kids are on my case about talking about gay stuff too much.
Mom! All gay, all the time. Everything isn't about gay people.
And they are right. I've learned, especially in my class, to cool it. There, I talk about politics all the time.
