I love it when folks get us.
Gia and I, is what I mean. I love it when they see us together and they realize how perfectly we compliment each other. Two halves of the same heart.
We were in NYC last night to see a friend perform at a rock club/bar. We were a little early so we hung out at the bar having a beer with the bartender. She was really cool. A musician herself, guitar I believe. The joint was empty at that point so she sat there talking with us.
We talked about music, her newest tattoo, her boyfriend and her step-father who acted in the movie Cruising back in 1980. That last part was weird because Gia's father was in the movie as an extra. No...not in the gay S&M clubs. Part of the movie took place in the meat-packing district (shaddup) and he was working at one of those meat joints back then. You can see him at one point in his white long jacket somewhere in there, apparently. I'm gonna have to see it again to catch his cameo.
Anyway, we maybe had two beers with this woman before our friend was ready to go on. She shook her head at us and smiled as we were getting ready to leave and she said that she could totally tell why we were a couple. She said that she saw us together like she saw herself and her boyfriend. Best friends in love.
She got us.
