I will — I’m sure it will make for a good story. I was anticipating opening up a little bit, but then one other woman mentioned that her nephew just told them he is in a relationship with a couple and how happy they are together — and isn’t that weird? I get that to many people this is a new concept and it’s difficult to convey how positive and nurturing and loving poly relationships can be. But, perhaps this is a chance to begin to do that — although I’m still on the fence about “from what I’ve heard” or whether I tell them it’s me. A couple people are fairly religious, so it’s probably going to be the former. Still, it cracks the door open and exposes them to something new.
