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.
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. It was such a relief to hear these construction workers talking about something else than compound miter saw reviews or how the rookie made a mistake at the construction site.
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.
