I knew T was on his way to my house yesterday morning. He had a ways to go, so I hopped on the treadmill for my morning workout. (It was day 2). After the workout, I headed upstairs to take a shower. I sent T a text letting him know I would be in the shower and reminding him of the code that unlockes the front door. I intentionally took a longer shower than usual in the hopes that he would join me. He did not. Maybe he got caught in traffic, I thought.
I turned off the shower, toweled off, and stepped out for the bathroom into the bed room. What I found was the stuff dreams are made of. T in the place I want him most... in my bed.
I will not bore you with the details of what happened next (maybe I will start a new blog for that...) but I was happy beyond measure that his skin was touching mine.
We then went out to lunch. We are both committed to eating better this year, (he thinks he has about 7 pounds to lose). We did make a healthy choice at lunch and we had a nice conversation. Being with him there is just wonderful. I wanted to lean over and kiss him often. I didn't, but I wanted to.
After, we went back to my house where we spent more time together, before he had to leave.
On my post the other day about togetherness, Biki posted a comment, "...Not everyone is as lucky as you are to be loved, and you're loved for who you are. Not what you do for a living, or drive, or your 6 pack. No, T loves you, warts and all. Revel in it my dear, revel in it. You have more than you know."
Yesterday, I was reveling. I know I complain a lot about how T and I are not together enough, but it is days like yesterday that I remember how truly lucky I am.
I am gay man in his 40's who was married for 18 years to a straight woman, who is still my very best friend. We have 4 children together. She is now remarried and we still want to be supportive of each other and make a stable family for our kids.
