Public Service Announcement (Well, Not Really)—TL; DR
Hi, guys. We’ve had a lot of requests in the last couple of days, weeks, whatever, and they’re all kind of along the same vein. Everyone wants to know the story of how we went from denying everything to the kind of PDA that gets broadcast to millions of people. Myself included, actually.
The truth is, I was the last person to know I was in love with Parker McAvoy. Well, no, that’s not strictly true. Actually, I think Parker was the last person to know. But I couldn’t keep that kind of a secret from him for long. Apparently I couldn’t even keep it a secret from the rest of the world even when I didn’t know myself! According to Chris’s wife, people in China knew I was in love with Parker before I did, which is pretty pathetic. Hell, Jimmy knew I was in love with Parker before I did. Believe me, that’s pretty humbling. Then again, as we’re all learning, Jimmy’s a lot smarter than he looks.
Anyway, as the following will illustrate, I was pretty dumb for an extended period of time, but eventually I did get a clue. I know what you guys are thinking, but I promise you this has nothing to do with the ideas y’all tried to put in my head over the years. You’re not even close to the first ones who’ve made that assumption. No, the first person to assume Parker was my boyfriend was my mom, and Parker didn’t even know I was gay yet. Talk about awkward….
