Another day at work and attempting to socialize

My humor recovery process failed on the way back from lunch Friday so I ended up outing myself. One of the guys I went to lunch with made a tease about being gay when the car rounded a bend and I slide into him in the back seat. I couldn't think of a good retort quickly so someone else joined in on the teasing, saying that I was "among friends", "safe place", "it's ok to come out of the closet". So I did the only thing I could think of doing; I said I wasn't in the closet and wasn't trying to hide it. It took them a moment to realize what I said and what that meant, and then they spent the next minute or so assuring me that's cool with them. Oye.

I thought everyone at work knew I was gay already. I had outed myself previously on the internal chat channel so I figured everyone just knew. Don't straight people gossip with each other over who is gay? Either that or I had stayed so quiet about it that they had completely forgotten. Oh well, we'll see next week how this affects the social lunch network. I suspect one person is a little homophobic based on how quickly he got out of the car at lunch Friday (I was in the middle of the backseat; the other wimps refused to ride in the middle; pfft heheh).
