The cat is out of the bag Pt II

Me: That I am actually a serial killer on the 10 most wanted Interpol's list?

MJ: Should we be scared? Anyway, whatever that we know, we assure you that we won’t tell anyone. We swear.

Me: Ok.

PL: Shall we say out loud what it is that we know or do you know by now? Or shall it be an unspoken?

Me: You can just say it. It’s up to you.

PL: We know what happened in June 2005. And I have to say, I really admire you for that.

Me: Thank you.

PL: So you won’t suddenly resign tomorrow, since that we now know?

Me: No la, just because of this ... I would probably just have to kill both of you haha

PL: So now we can blackmail you ... haha

Me: Well, it’s up to you how you want to use this information. It’s your conscience, I can’t tell you what to do or what not to do ….

PL: Actually I feel bad knowing also. Since you didn’t tell us earlier when we asked ….

Me: It’s a bit too late for that isn’t it? So kepoh (busybody) ...

MJ: OK, OK. We won’t tell anyone. Think we are stupid is it?

PL: You totally had us fooled you know. You told us you have a girlfriend. When I was reading your blog, I was like oh my god, oh my god, oh my god ...

MJ: No it was more like OMG, OMG, OMG with caps!

PL: We were on MSN and we were copying and sending snippets of your posts to each other, like did you read this part? Or look at this paragraph!

MJ: So with that out of the way, I have hundreds of question to ask you.

Me: I wouldn’t expect less from you. Shoot.

MJ: Who is the dominant one in the relationship?

Me: Huh? *try to not roll eyes*

PL: Who is the girl and who is the guy?

Me: There is no guy or girl. We’re both equals in the relationship.

MJ: There must be someone who is more caring and loving …

Me: We take care of each other. We care for each other. There are times when I would care for him more and vice versa.

PL: Quite different from us .....

MJ: It’s so exciting. This other whole world that was unknown to me before this.

Me: I am just like you, I have flesh and bones, blood in my veins, I can feel pain, I cry. Though I am glad this has expanded your worldview. That is always a good thing.

There was so much more to talk about, but it had to wait as lunch time was almost over and we had to get back to the office.

Thus, the cat is out of the bag. I have been discovered. I don’t actually mind them knowing, but the disconcerting fact was that it wasn’t on my schedule and on my terms.

I would probably have told them anyway, but in my own time. What happened was totally out of the blue and definitely way ahead of schedule.

Though come to think of it, they are not the most ideal people to know, judging from their reactions when I sang M2M's Pretty Boy with lyrics that go "Oh my pretty pretty boy I love you, Like I never ever loved no one before you."

Still, it has already happened. It is a kinda a big deal, but not that big a deal. I am glad that the result of them knowing wasn't as bad as I had thought it would be. Their acceptance and understanding is much appreciated. It demonstrates their understanding of the issue and its consequences.

We even had another discussion about it three days after the incident. They were supposed to type out a word document of questions that they would like to ask.

I should probably come up with an FAQ of Common Questions from Straight People Once They Found Out You’re Gay.

"Though come to think of it, they are not the most ideal people to know, judging from their reactions when I sang M2M's Pretty Boy with lyrics that go "Oh my pretty pretty boy I love you, Like I never ever loved no one before you.""

suanie: Hey suanie! Nope I didn't. It's all due to PL's great investigative a.k.a digging skills.

this question: Are you top or bottom?
