The girls are going off to Calistoga to sit in hot springs and get mud baths and do wine tastings.
I am assuming it will all be okay. After all, Calistoga advertises itself as gay-friendly. (Background noise, very loud LA LA LA LA, San Francisco ATT Park I am looking at you!)
Am working very hard to consider that tourist country likes to keep things nice, and therefore I should NOT WORRY.
So I am struggling with the desire to wrap them both in cotton wool and lock them up safe in the house where no one will be mean. Though I know it not only can’t but shouldn’t be done. And am also trying to work out a reminder that it is a big bad world out there full of lots of people who pointlessly hate them.But that suggests implicitly that somehow being who they are is the problem.
I will not tell them not to be who they are, or to suggest to them that they should do anything other than just walk around like two lovers holding hands, because they are so very happy to be together. I just don’t want anyone accusing them of scaring the children. Damn it, hateful people suck, and I hate them when they scare my children.
