Talking to my good straight friend, J, today...I asked him if he still had my aerobed in his house since a visit is upcoming. He said yes and also that he recently used it for a guest. But there was terrible trouble. It wouldn't hold the wind. He finally realized he had to close the large cap at the bottom (which you simply undo to let all the air out).
And he said, "I realized that if something was broken it was my fault, because whenever a gay man gives you something, you know if anything is wrong, it's you."
