Sunday was a sad day in my world. I said goodbye to a friend.
We had shared many nights together, enjoying craft ales and delicious food. Long walks on the beach were a staple of this union.
I had been meaning to tell this story for a while and as I sit on honeymoon in Mexico by the pool there was ample time to do so. Furthermore two articles that appeared on my Facebook and Twitter newsfeeds over the past week or so made this piece even more relevant. Click on the links below and ideally read them first. The first article came with the “revelation” that Hollywood actor James Franco posted a “selfie” photo on Instagram of him “cuddling” up to a male friend in bed (excuse the excessive use of speech marks). The second article was from news sharing and blogging site sensation The Huffington Post; somehow concluding 93% of men admitted cuddling with another guy (I have no idea of who, where and how many men they asked).
