Far From Seattle


On Saturday evening, Anne and I found ourselves in Genesee, Idaho, population (dreaming of) 1,000.

We were spending the weekend with our friends Diana and Barry, a straight couple who live in nearby Lewiston.  They took us to a restaurant in Genesee they like.

As we settled in at our table, I felt and saw the stares coming from the tables on either side of us.  I leaned over to Anne and whispered, "We're getting stares.  Don't know if it's because we're strangers or dykes."

Anne's money was on the latter.  We'll never know.  But being eyeballed from both sides at once suddenly made me feel like a rotisserie lesbian.
