The Long Kiss Goodnight....
I was out to dinner with 5 other gay men the other night. As we stopped at my favorite (and most pretentious!!) corner in the South End (Tremont & Waltham), we said our gay goodbyes, and like all homos everywhere, each of us gave each a hug and a kiss goodnight. We were appalled by the shocked expressions from the Ugg-wearing "trendsetters" staring at us through the windows of the Butcher Shop. You would think we had given each other a big juicy group blowjob by the looks on their suburban/Back Bay/Beacon Hill faces. Don't guys kiss each other goodnight in Attleboro or Marshfield or wherever they're coming from?
I remember a day not long ago when a kiss goodnight between two homos in the South End was de rigeur and shocking to no one. In fact, prior to the Butcher Shop, a great gay little restaurant named "Rave" occupied that spot, and before that, a gay coffee shop called "Mildred's."
Its enough to make me just want to run home and not even consider buying an heirloom tomato at Plum Produce!!
