Jules, Mia and I were lounging around on my bed watching television. Mia asked about a male and female character on the show we were watching.
Mia: “Are they married or brother and sister?”
Me: “I think they’re engaged so that would make her his fiancé”
Mia: *Gasp*! She’s gay!?”
Me: “What? No. ‘Fiancé’ means that they’re going to to be married someday.”
Mia: “Ohhhhh! I thought ‘fiancé’ meant girl gay.”
Me: “Um, I think you’re thinking of ‘lesbian’ but that word and ‘fiancé’ sound nothing alike so I’m not sure how that happened.”
Mia: “Wait- are you trying to say ‘Beyoncé’?”
Me: “No. Beyoncé is an entertainer but her name does rhyme with fiancé.”
Mia: “So Uncle Nick (my brother who is fabulously gay) is a lesbian because he’s gay?”
I was missing a integral part of the movie because of this convoluted conversation so I just told her the truth…
“Yes- Uncle Nick is a lesbian.”
I mean, that’s close enough, right? I was missing the movie!
