So, my girlfriend, Wendy, sent me the book Case Histories, by Kate Atkinson through district mail.  I was telling my first period class, and suddenly someone said, “Ms. V., you have a girlfriend?”  I had no idea what they were saying.  Then I realized they were asking if I was gay. 

Heh.  I said, “Well, no.  That’s what women call their friends.”  Then I went on to tell them, that however if I were gay, that there would be nothing wrong with it, a la Seinfeld.  Before I knew it, we were having a discussion on tolerance of all people, their sexual orientation, etc.
