A Series of Baguio Events – Episode 3
While waiting for Leigh to finish shopping, I decided to buy the People magazine issue with ex-‘NSync Lance Bass and a huge “I’m Gay” headline on the cover. At the cashier, the assisting girl at the counter read the headline and said, more to herself really, “Ay, I’m a gay!”
Mentally I imagined bitch-slapping her then saying, “I’m a gay? Are you a blind? You’re a silly.”
Yes, it’s another pet peeve of mine—people adding the article “a” before the word “gay” when the latter is used as a noun, not an adjective.
