I showed D., who looked through them all, and pronounced names and words. She said she'd heard that German soap operas were more liberal than American soap operas, but that she'd seen two men kissing on American TV. I explained that these pictures were of actors who played gay characters on the soap operas. "Schwul Paar," I said. She stopped in shock/squick at the photo of Dennis and Brent. I'd thought of leaving it home, but I felt that that would be editing out the whole spirit of the event. I was like, "Not your thing." Definitely not her thing. Honestly, I don't know how anyone could miss the sweetness and love in that picture.
I still had some of the pictures when I picked up P., and she looked through them as we drove down to Wilmington. I pointed out the picture of Igor and me. "You look really happy," she said. Pretty much.
