Two Dads On A Train

Hey there Guys. Just got alerted to this from a friend on Facebook and thought it was too good not to share. Published at SoLetsTalkAbout blog is this awesome conversation overheard on a subway. Two construction workers, two dads on a train, talking about their sons:

Guy #2:  No more kids for you two?
Guy #1:  No, she figures we’re both getting too old for a baby.
Guy #2:  How is your boy anyway?  Haven’t seen him in awhile.
Guy #1:  Oh John’s good, pitching this year varsity.
Guy #2:  He’ll definitely have the girls hanging around him now.
Guy #1:  Yeah if he had any time for them.
Guy #2:  Focused on baseball?
Guy #1:  Focused on boys.
Guy #2:  You’re shittin me!
Guy #1:  I kid you not.  Came out to me and Mary Ann bold as daylight last year.
Guy #2:  Well I’ll be damned!  I’m not supposed to know it but I overheard Patrick Junior tell his sister he might be gay not two months ago.
Guy #1:  We all saw that coming though.
Guy #2:  You’re the second person to say that.  How’d everybody see it but me?
Guy #1:  It was just a feelin Pat.  He was always a little soft, ya know?
Guy #2:  I guess you’re right.  But damn Charlie, we both have gay kids.  What do we do now?  Both our sons are gay.
Guy #1:  We don’t do anything.  We let em be gay and if some kid calls em a faggot we go to their house and raise hell with the parents like normal.
Guy #2:  Well I guess John and Lucinda won’t be getting together like we thought awhile ago.
Guy #1:  Guess not.
**long pause**
Guy #2:  Hey Charlie, you thinkin what I’m thinkin?
Guy #1:  I was for about half a second then it got weird and I started thinkin about somethin else instead.

How freaking amazing it that! I could only wish that there were more parents just like these two.

If there was some way I could track down these two dads on a train I would love to give them both a massive hug for being so dam awesome!

I hope this story puts a nice happy spring in your step just like it did for me. Please feel free to share with someone who might appreciate a smile today.

Yours in great health.
