First Step In Coming Out Gone Awry
No one knows that I like girls yet, but I decided to try to take the first step today in hinting it to my mom. We went to a jewelry stand at a flea market today and there was a section filled with what looked like rainbow bracelets. I made a big deal about wanting one and I told my mom that it was important that I get it. I thought that she might make the connection between me desperately needing a rainbow bracelet and gay pride. She ended up buying me the darn thing, but gave me a worried look. When we got home, she told me that we needed to talk and I prepared myself for her questions about the bracelet. I was ready to come clean and tell my mom I liked girls. She did ask me why I wanted the bracelet so badly, but when I looked down I realized that it wasn't just a rainbow bracelet, but a colorful bracelet with the symbol for weed on it. Now my mom just thinks I do pot. :( After finally convincing her (I hope) that I do not do drugs I think I have lost all my nerve in actually coming out.
