Picked me up and said, “How’d you get way out here?”  The middle of nowhere is sometimes the reason you get picked up.

I went for a sip of my water and he offered me a beer!  From joints to beers, it’s a good day to catch a ride.  People are generous in this area but maybe I’m generalizing.

He asked me what I thought of the gay marriage issue and I told him I was all for it.  My older brother’s gay and even before I knew that I was arguing gay rights against some of my small-town friends in high school.  He asked if I was gay and I replied that I found women more attractive sexually.  With the curves and the smells and all..  So he says, “Hey, don’t knock it ’til you tried it!” I’ll just not knock it…

We got talking about kitchen work, we’d both worked in quite a few kitchens in our day.  I chugged the last of my beer as he dropped me off, a good ways down the highway but not at Regina yet.

In retrospect, he maybe thought of me the same way I thought about #15 earlier today.  “I picked up a hitchhiker today.  Surprisingly, no sex..”
