My One Regret

I've never had a problem with anyone's sexuality.  From a strictly practical standpoint, the world is divided into People I'll Sleep With, and People I Won't Sleep With.  The first group consists of my husband, and the second consists of everyone else.  So what difference could it possibly make to me whether you want to sleep with a man or a woman, for crying out loud?

When I was in high school, I had a tremendous crush on a tall, blond-haired, blue-eyed guy at another school.  Unfortunately, he had a girlfriend - but my best friend was dating his best friend, and after they went away to college, they finally confessed to her that they were a couple.   And, since we were all Catholic School escapees, from the Class of '70, they begged her to tell no one.  She told me because she was in shock and had to tell someone, and I kept her secret so the guys wouldn't think they couldn't trust her.

I wish now that I had just told them - yeah, I know all about it, and I don't love you an ounce less.  You are two of the most wonderful people I've ever known. 

 We all lost touch years ago, but I just wish they knew.
