rainbow flags on every light post
And I really did have the most handsome little lunch date:
always a hit with the gays
Walking around the Castro, one is likely to stumble upon men walking tiny dogs in sweaters, shirtless bears in the windows of bars, and a plethora of sex toys in shop windows (yesterday even I came across something I didn't know existed . . . and that's sayin' a lot). I'm always amused by the hilarious store names in the Castro:
on the left, my personal fave: Does Your Mother Know
and on the right, Hand Job Nails & Spa
A few months ago, I was driving home from babysitting Freeman, and was at a stop sign at 18th and Castro, when a totally naked man crossed the street (along with several other pedestrians who were clothed). Now, this would not be weird at all had it been the Folsom St. Fair or Gay Pride weekend . . . but it was an average Wednesday evening around 8:30 pm.
I love this city.
