What’s in door #1?

Daily Prompt: Ha Ha Ha
Tell us a joke! Knock-knock joke, long story with a unexpected punchline, great zinger — all jokes are welcome!

A joke? Oh wow! That’s harder than my uncle’s egg.

I’m not a very good joker, nor jokee. But I’m not a total dud, I hope. There are some jokes that I would find funny, but most of the ones that I know are just lame.

How about a funny story instead?

Ok, I have never hidden the fact that I’m gay, but I don’t announce it to everyone I meet either… “Hey, I’m Yashie and I’m gay…” I don’t think so.

closetAnyway, I was running around the office one time getting some stuff together for a gift basket when I heard a relatively new co-worker looking for me. I called out his name from inside the storeroom to let him know where I was. Then he said jokingly “Hey Yasmin, get out of the closet!” So I yelled back, “I already am!” The others who knew I was gay and heard the exchange started laughing.  He just scratched his head seeing that I was still inside the closet. Minutes later, after he got the joke, chuckled and said “Touché! But, I totally knew you were gay.” Duh!

My goodness that was totally lame reading it after the fact, but that’s all I could conjure from my humorless head.

Old Blogs: Relationships…

This is just one of a few of my “gay” blogs…

 Relationships…

i’ve always been gay, well ever since i can remember falling in love with the same sex.
don’t get me wrong, i’ve also had crushes on guys when i was younger, suitors who were not so bad either, even had a boyfriend at one point in my life… but that was all they turned out to be, just boys, nothing more.

My sexual preference does not need explanation. this is who i am, a simple girl who just happens to like girls…but my concept of an ideal relationship, and i speak for myself and not the whole gay-lesbian community out there though they can agree (or disagree) with me, is more than just falling in love and finding the right partner for you… it’s believing in your relationship and your willingness to fight for your love and your partner.

it’s easy to fall in love… you find someone who would promise the world to you and sweep you off your feet and boom, you’re in love. but how far will that go? is it enough to keep you rooted to that relationship?

falling in love is but the first step, what holds the relationship together is what you’ll do, the steps you have to take and the sacrifices you have to endure to stay in it and stay in love with each other. once you’ve lost that drive, the ties get loose and the relationship falls apart.

Office break

Being the only “gay girl” in the office, i am often the butt of most of their lesbian jokes.

Not that I’m complaining, in fact, i like the way they acknowledge me as different from the others.
That despite my sexual orientation, they love (?) and respect (?) me for who I am. They are my reason for having stayed with the company for more than 6 years.

I will surely miss the office banters; the jeers and eyebrow raising comments; the cam whoring and birthday surprises; the luncheon conferences; the overtime sentiments; the 24 hour non stop commercial shoots; even the boardroom firing range moments.

But most of all, I will miss being their “favorite GAY person”…
