Question of the day: I’m gay.
This question is unlike any question I’ve ever posted here on the blog.
It’s a “what it…” scenerio. Meaning, it could happen… and if it did, how would you react? What would you say? How would you handle it?
Let me set the scene…
You are standing by the table rummaging through papers and bills, when Jeronimo walks up behind you.
You: Hi, Jer! How’s it going…?
Jeronimo: Oh, you know… it’s going good.
You: What are you up to?
Jeronimo: You know what… I need to talk to you. Do you have a minute?
You: Of course! What’s up?
Jeronimo: I’m gay…
That blank is for you (the reader) to fill in via the comment box.
Now, depending on who you are, you can look at this from a few different view points.
Jeronimo could be:
- Your son/daughter
- Best friend
So how would you handle this situation?
What would you say to Jeronimo?
Would you react calmly? Freak out? Stay quiet?
Or would you just walk away in complete shock?
Have you already encountered a similiar situation like this?
How did you respond?
