A few weeks ago I was watching Will and Grace, I'm actually glad that show came back on, even if it's just for one or two seasons. I can gauge how far I have come from watching that show. When it started way, way back in the bad old days, I was completely disgusted with the character Jack. I would get furious with the stereotype and refused to watch the show in the beginning. Later I would evolve into a fan, realizing that the problem was not the character Jack, it was my own homophobia and my refusal to accept being gay. Today however I am all about Jack, "Just Jack" also I am a total fan of the nasty Karen Walker, those two crack me up, personally I think I'm watching Jack & Karen instead of W & G and I can't wait for those two characters to show up.
There was a joke on Will and Grace about gay men watching This Is Us, a popular t.v. show and I confess, guilty as charged. I got hooked because it was a character driven show; however I started to notice drama, drama, drama, everyone seemed to always be crying about something. One of my friends said to me, "boy that show really turns on the water works, I don't think I'm going to watch anymore". I agree, it makes me think of the show Party of Five, I started watching that show for the cute guys and I remember my Dad saying, "do they do nothing but cry every week"?
Time for a breather, unlike the people who create This Is Us, I don't want this blog to be a Debbie downer so I will try to mix things up. Usually if something is bothering me, I will put it down here as long as it's not too personal, then I feel better after writing. I know some were moved to tears yesterday, I just hope it wasn't because the post was so awful it made people cry. (Lol)
Alright, time to giggle. When I joined an online site last week, I had to answer some very personal questions. One made me laugh, they asked me if I liked armpits! Armpits, I don't think I really give armpits much thought. I suppose armpits could be sexy, I certainly would like clean ones a lot more than dirty ones, although I have heard some guys are into that sort of thing. Some deodorant applied would be helpful, without it guys often get that skunk smell and I have yet to hear some man say, "mmmmm, skunk I am so turned on right now". I do remember when I started high school, some of the older guys were wearing sleeveless jerseys one spring and I could see they were growing hair. That was pretty erotic for me since my attractions are towards things masculine and they were signaling that they were definitely male. I don't however think that counts as being into armpits, I mean I don't think I would lick one or get upset because I couldn't touch one.
My only armpit story that I can remember was something that happened when I first started dating Dan. I was staying over at his place and he had already fallen asleep. Lying there with him, I often noticed that even though he was a big man, 6'3 & 230lbs, who worked in construction type work, he never smelled. Especially after his evening shower, not a hint of a smell even hours later. Looking at him sleeping, he was lying on his back with his hands behind his head. Armpits exposed I got it in my mind to see if even they were without scent. I gently rolled over and got closer, but nothing, there was no smell. I edged a little closer, still nothing and I was really impressed, how could this be, finally I put my nose inches from his armpit and just as I was about to inhale, he opened his eyes and with a smirk said, "is there a problem here"?
