Before being a lesbian was “hot,” I had a collection of straight guy friends — most were guys I worked with. For a while there, I had the best of both worlds: The “girls” invited me to their nights out and the “boys” invited me to theirs. It was seriously fun.
But as the straight world started learning more about lesbians (sort of), both genders got a little nervous around me. The men realized that I was actually a woman. I’m not sure what the women realized, but they obviously were uncomfortable. Maybe they thought I’d attack them in the restroom or something.
I think that’s why I don’t love My Boys — I’m jealous. I want to be P.J. (Jordana Spiro), hanging out at the bar, going to the comic store and drinking beer at ball games with the guys.
I will, however, be watching tonight’s season finale (10 p.m. EST on TBS). Bobby’s getting married and all the usual sitcom mayhem ensues. Bobby’s brother Jack, who was best man, bailed last episode so he has to find a stand-in. Then Bobby’s mom (Marilu Henner) shows up and is, as are all moms in such cases, a handful. Mimi Rogers also makes a guest appearance, but I won’t spoil it by saying more than that. The big question, though, is whether Bobby actually will get married, since we all know that he and P.J. belong together.
Are you a My Boys fan? Any predictions for tonight?
