Things have been hectic lately. I have been given a tentative offer for a new job. This means Jello and I have to move about 40 miles south of our current location if it is finalized (the commute from my current place to the new place would be minimum 1.5 hours each way, way too much of a commute for me to want to do). So this is it, our first apartment hunting as a gay couple.
After a week or so of stressing, Jello and I actually started visiting our first complex. The lady who was showing things to us was super sweet. The whole time she referred to Jello as a male, used all the right male pronouns and it is the first time that I think the person had absolutely no question about his gender. She even looked at his driver’s license and didn’t notice that the driver’s license gender doesn’t match what Jello looks like.
She evidently thought we were the cutest gay couple that finished each other’s sentences.
It was a pretty cool thing. The first time since Jello’s transition that no one even blinked. Jello can pass on his own, but something about me evidently screams heterosexual enough that he normally gets “ma’am’d” by people. Which is always uncomfortable since I have seen him come into stores and get “sir’d” by people usually.
Both he and I were excited by this experience. It was an awesome first time. I didn’t have a lot to talk about this situation. I just wanted to share it with all of you.
