I was just skimming over the copy of First Flight* that I started to keep track of my pre-editing edits and came across a note to myself that I’d forgotten writing. The context is as follows: Kevin is trying to worm his way back into Jesse’s good graces by being friendly with Christopher. Kevin, in an attempt to bond with poor Chris, is trying to get him to go somewhere, and offers several options. One of them is a strip club; specifically one with topless female waitstaff.
Yeah, read that again. My note says: This is a weird question, considering that the three guys involved in the relationship are all, y’know, GAY AS DAD’S OLD HATBAND. So I should probably do something about that.
On a related note (heh), I have no idea where I picked up the phrase ‘gay as dad’s old hatband’. I think it may have predated my internet years, so maybe a library book?
* No. Still not tired of that whole “I sold a story!” thing.
