His crew mates have also recently started greeting him with a kiss on each cheek rather than a manly handshake. He has taken this to mean that he has been accepted.
I have taken it to mean that there are only so many signs that your boyfriend is gay that you can ignore for so long.
I jest. He has been a member of the Biarritz Boaties surfboat crew since March. Surfboat, for those of you who may be unfamiliar with the sport, has its history in Australia where large rowing boats, ordinarily used in rescue missions in massive waves, compete against each other (4 rowers, 1 sweep) in a speed competition.
A fab event and yet another reason to love living here. Aupa Biarritz!!
