Aaaand I have no idea what was going through my mother's mind when she said she had never heard of a chocolate blackout cake!!! We used to have them all the time throughout my childhood, it's like a big New York thing. People, please back me up on this and tell me you have heard of a blackout cake! My sister, Maria, DID back my up that day. And I strangely did write a spoof of "Gone with the Wind" for my FIFTH (not second!) grade class, which was so insanely gay that I can't believe that didn't count as my coming out!
I loved all the stuff with our families so much, they were all so amazing agreeing to participate in this show when really, all told, we are a pretty private group. And I'm so happy we did it. Blackout cake and all.
It's been fun for me watching some of the smaller moments with Brad, like talking about slapping bow ties on him as an old man or what the dress code for our party will be. I'd forgotten those conversations had even taken place, and it was nice to revisit them because I feel it shows us as we really usually are (some will like it, some will not, as I'm learning), just kind of joking around with each other and hanging out. It's super easy and Brad's just the best, it's as simple as that.
