Innocence.

3.7.2007

For your amusement, I will tell you a story from my past. This is my sister's favorite story. It happened when I was about 12, so a good decade and a half ago.

I was walking to school in the morning and was approached by 2 of my peers. They were somewhat antagonistic girls, though they were not my enemies. They were more worldly than I was, as were most of my peers at the time. They asked me "Are you a lesbian?"

I could tell by their tone that this was a trick question. However, I did not know what a lesbian was, so I did not know what the correct answer was. After a bit of consideration, I answered "Maybe..."

This tactic worked well, and they left. Hooray for ambiguity!
