I caught a bit of NPR today in a cab and heard that the National Pinball Museum is opening this weekend in The Shoppes at Georgetown Park, located at 3222 M ST NW. The museum features a collection of over 800 pinball machines and includes an interactive exhibit and a “pay to play” section where you can actually play these great machines. Advance purchase tickets are $10 if purchased by Friday, December 3rd.
I know some people don’t like the idea of going to a museum on a date, but this sounds like a lot of fun. Remember: if he kicks the pinball machine then he’s a jerk.
You see, I’m panicky in a social situation where almost everyone is straight because, in the immortal words of Edina Monsoon, “all my friends are gay!” Okay, maybe 98% is more accurate but you get the picture. It’s not that straight situations terrify me but they definitely take me out of my comfort zone. Do I hang with the men or the women? Was there a game on this week (not including Mens diving or gymnastics) that I watched so I can kinda talk sports?
Just as I was about to make a dive for the margarita bar, where I had resigned to park myself next to for the rest of the night, I feel a tap on my shoulder and turn around to see Matt’s girl friend Brunette Wonkette in a saucy little black catsuit with knee high boots, a water pistol and “Secret Agent” name tag. Werk!

After a couple of dates with Matt, the swimmer I met earlier in the pool, I realized that something was a little different.
The first time I hung out with his friends everything appeared on the up and up. He invited me to a house warming party which was kind of tacked on to the running and dinner date we planned for earlier that evening. Everyone was very warm and welcoming when we arrived, and while Matt mingled with his friends, I hung back and looked for someone to chat with: straight, married, straight, straight, possible fag hag, ah. Gayyy! Turns out Gayyy! was a good friend of Matt’s in town from New York on a brief work stint. We chatted during the evening, got a little tipsy, and poked fun at how Matt’s close girl friend Brunette Wonkette wrapped the single straight guys around her finger. Read more…

Jarrod: What?! First of all, who knew that Clay would get a boyfriend, and second, what does the “for now” part mean?
