7 Random Facts About Marl
1 - Pat & I have been together for 26 years. We first met when I was 13 - when her sister, Marci (a highschool classmate), my sister & I needed a driver, she was often our designated driver. When I was a freshman in college, Marci came over to our house to make a dramatic announcement - Pat was gay. HMMMMM....so was I, but nobody knew it then. After college, Marci & my sister decided it would be "cute" to fix us up. We dated for about 6 months, then she broke it off. We got back together in 1981 & have been together since.
2 - I read - a lot. 2 or 3 books a week, mostly fiction. Thank goodness for BJs & Sam's Club have cheap paperbacks.
3 - Of the 3 children in my family, 2 are gay. And it's not my twin. My brother came out to the family about 5 years ago. But we'd all known it since he wasa kid.
