Conversation between me and my two (straight) friends on our way to a movie.
JT: So, what should we see?
Konrad: I’ve already seen it.
JT: Me too.
Me: I haven’t….
Konrad (to JT): What did you think of it?
JT: I liked it pretty well. But the vocals were sub-par.
Konrad: Exactly. I saw it on Broadway and it was incredible. So I found the movie was a little lacking.
JT: Right, the music was just not up to snuff. They did a pretty decent job, but it was nothing like some of the other productions I’ve seen…
Konrad: I completely agree. In fact, I downloaded the soundtrack before seeing the movie. I kind of regret that now because it damaged the experience. *pulls out phone and plays a track from the movie*
JT: See, Anne Hathaway did a great job. But again, I wonder if her performance…
Me (interrupting): Guys, I’m starting to feel a little threatened here. Are you trying to make me feel insecure in my gayness? Because you just outgayed me. Both of you. Big time.
JT and Konrad: *laugh and then move on to discussing whether or not they’ll be playing tackle football the next morning*
Conclusion: metrosexuality is making things incredibly confusing. And also, I think I owe it to gaydom to see a production of Les Mis at some point in my life.
