YESTERDAY, at the Post Office.

At the Post Office:
“I’d like to send this book via media mail.”
“Sure, no problem. Is it a good book?”
“I’d like to think so – I’m one of its editors!”
“What’s it about?”
“It’s about bisexual men.” (said in the most matter-of-fact voice I could muster)
“Oh. Do you trash us?”
“No, in fact it’s bisexual men speaking in their own voices and it’s quite beautiful.”
(He smiles.) “What’s it called?”
Recognize: The Voices of Bisexual Men-An Anthology

(We both smile.)
