Last night, S and B and I were up at Last Thursday, a monthly street fair in NE Portland. We ran into an acquaintance of S. The acquaintance introduced us to her husband, and S introduced me and B with, “and this is my family.” Obviously, this left a couple of questions in the woman’s head, because after a couple of moments of chit-chat, she said, “Oh! So this is your real family. Your… brother and sister?”

I smiled faintly and said, “No. Sweethearts.” Which earned me a wide-eyed look and an “Oh.” And end of topic.

I’m pretty happy with how I handled that.  🙂
