When you have a gay son, you do gay things
On Saturday my father and I went to First Monday Trade Days in Canton, Texas. Canton is a 100-acre flea market with vintage finds, arts and crafts, and some new stuff in the mix. I love the hunt that I experience at Canton- you never know what you'll find or see. My Aunt Jan used to take me to Canton when I was young. I always think of her when I'm there. I am a fan of Canton.
My father is not necessarily a fan of Canton. I knew we were in trouble when he asked if I ever noticed the ratio of women to men is 15 to 1. Canton is full of Dallas housewives that take girl trips to Canton. Most guys don't like Canton. However, my father wanted to spend time with me. He takes my brother (his hetero son) hunting and he take me (his gay son) shopping at a flea market. My father just likes to hang out with his sons. It was a great day.
