En un boca cerrada no entran los moscas.

iHola mi amigos! I actually had a really good reason for the lack of posts. I just returned from a revitalizing trip to the west coast of Mexico. I sweated out toxins in Acapulco, learned about Mangos in Zijuatanajo and the history Ixtapa. I flew through the Canopy in the mountains outside of Puerto Vallarta and relaxed on the beaches of Cabo San Lucas. All is right with the world. I have to say my favorite part of the trip was definitely the ziplines through the canopy in Puerto Vallarta. Lanny and I were joking that it was our test to see how well we would do on The Amazing Race. Turns out we would do pretty well. I'm sure we would make a better TAR team than Tom and I would, that would be a disaster.

We started with a little boat ride across the marina to an army jeep ride an hour into the mountains. Then it was up and into the trees. I was a bit upset when I was told I wouldn’t be able to bring my camera into the Canopy with me. I had taking pictures while upside down in a biplane, why can’t I take pictures while repelling? Hindsight- I see their point and say thank you, because I probably had more fun without the camera. I was busy making the sad face when I saw something that made me smile and say, “Hello!” “What?” Lanny asked me. I nodded to the incredibly hot Latin man with the bandana on his shaved head and repeated myself, “Hello!” Lanny just laughed at me as I continued to stare, my mouth was probably open.

That’s when the hot man looked at me, smiled and pointed at me. “You. Come here.” We did some quick introductions his name is Manuel and I noted he sounded a little to interested in my name. That made my smile even bigger. (Now all you pigs are going to love this next sentance.) He knelt in front of me and told me to put my hands on his shoulders and step into the harness. He helped me get into my gear and I guess my shirt started to hike up towards my chest. “Oh, I’m undressing you already,” he said. “I just can’t help myself around a hot man.” If I was quicker I would have said something cheesy... “Manuel you can undress me anytime you want.” But instead I think I giggled nervously as glee sprang from my stomach and I thought... The sexiest man in Mexico just called me hot! Manuel continued to fiddle with my gear until everything was in the right place and then he sent me to to Victor to “have him check the size of my head”. Everything today was going to be very thinly veiled allusions to sex, I just knew it. Victor who had very big muscles and a perfect smile determined My head would fit in the helmet and sent me on to get a name tag.

When in groups of strangers I’m usually try to be a little covert with my gayness. I’m sure people know I’m gay but I feel no need to get the marketing department involved in making sure everyone in the vicinity is on the same page as I am. I would have loved to see the look on my face when Manuel took action. Before he began introductions and instructions he decided it needed to be point out his fellow homos to the entire group so no mistake could be made. Lanny had sat at the edge so he could steal the tiniest amount of shade. I had sat more toward the center so as to have a better view of Manuel. "What's wrong with you two love-birds? Eric, Lanny, are you fighting? Why are you sitting so far from each other?" he asked, over exaggerating his gay accent.

By the end our trip through the canopy, I would have my nipples pinched by manuel as he stocked my ego with his constant flirting and be sandwiched while on the lines by vic and Adolfo. I think I can forgive Manuel, I think he was able to made it up to me.
