I just got off the phone with my dearest nephew who has been dealing with a bunch of crap. Apparently one of his new friends is bisexual, and because they hit it off so well, the rumor is now going around that they are dating. Now, Corey couldn't give a rat's ass about what other people think, but he's sick to death of everyone coming to him and asking him about it. I swear that if my nephew actually got as much play as he is rumored to get, he would be a serious player. And quite possibly exhausted. Here is the kicker... One of my evil step-niece's (ESN for short) friends saw my nephew's myspace account and saw that this new friend is one of the top friends listed. She tells ESN, who can't wait to tell my sister and my brother-in-law. (She was in deep shit for sending 13000 text messages, many of them during school or in the wee hours of the morning and lots to a guy in the navy, despite the fact that she just turned 16 a couple of weeks ago. Jailbait? I think so, but that is a whole other story.) My sister actually calls my nephew and grills him about him being gay. First of all, why in the hell would she believe anything that ESN says? Why would she believe that about her son when she has had lots of discussions with him about girls that he likes? Did she think that he was lying for her sake? She is always talking about what a close relationship she has with him, but she questions him on this? And she wonders why he will choose to talk to me instead of her sometimes. Lastly, even if he was gay or bi, what does it matter? I realize that my BIL and ESN will give him shit for it, but she shouldn't care. My nephew certainly wouldn't. When he told me what was going on and what people were saying at his school, I had to laugh. Of course, I had to find the song by Josie Cotton, Johnny Are You Queer and send it to him. I told him that I was going to send it to him because I love him enough to pick on him and I also think that he would like the song. He and Cami can create a great interpretive dance to it, as they do for all songs. Cami will appreciate it.
