Deep in slumber, I dreamed about a boring conference I was attending. Trapped in the middle of the 2nd row of black chairs, the person next to me was spilling his papers all over the place. I impatiently reached for my cell phone for the millionth time, anxiously awaiting the SCOTUS ruling on legalizing same-sex marriage. Then my partner AJ gently woke me up.
The crack in his voice was all I needed to know how the verdict came down. He said to me “They…”
And I started to cry.
“…ruled in our favor. Gay Marriage is legal.”
I held him and couldn’t stop crying. We laid in bed for an hour, just holding each other.
I’ll be back on Monday with a recipe. For now I’m going to celebrate.
