One of my conversations, yesterday around the bay:
Ed: Did you read about that married couple who couldn't get accommodations anywhere in town?
Me: No - but rental costs are going up everywhere.
Ed: Oh, they could afford it alright.
Me: So what was the story then?
Ed: They were gay!
Me: In this day and age that kind of discrimination exists in St. John's?
Ed: Well, I'm not prejudiced at all, they could live with me, I wouldn't have a problem!
Me: (looking at Ed in a new light, never thinking him so liberal) Really Ed?
Ed: Of course they couldn't sleep in the same room in my house, I'd put them in separate bedrooms.
