    LOL! Ok, I just got home and there was some guy I hadn't seen before, walking two little dogs next door. I said "Hi", introduced myself. Asked him how long he'd been there, two months he said. I then proceeded to ask him if he knew "Dorothy". "Who's Dorothy?", he said. I said, "Nevermind, I thought you might be a friend of Dorothy". He turned on his heel and said, "Nice to meet you", walking quickly away. I called after him, apologizing BUT also laughed out loud.

    I have a cold, so I blame that.

    I'm assuming you where trying to find out if he was gay right?

    So, my question is, why did you need to know?

    I don't know! He just seemed queer, the new gay church down the street which also just moved in popped into my head and then I said it.
    There are several gay guys in the hood, I guess I just thought it would be cool to have a queer neighbor next door.

    Oh well, straights assume I'm straight all the time, so I guess turnabout is fair play.

    I wish! Not bad looking, hair styled and gelled, nice clothes, walking two little dogs and rather effeminate. Straight? Gaydar wrong.

    Oh noes. You probably sounded like a queerbasher and scared him! Now he'll bring hunky lesbian friends whenever he walks by your house! XD

    I like the cloak and daggerishness about using code "friend of dorothy". It's way more Mel Brooks than "so, are you gay?".

    Here's a fascinating fact regarding the "FoD" slang:

    "In the early 1980s, the Naval Investigative Service was investigating homosexuality in the Chicago area. Agents discovered that gay men sometimes referred to themselves as "friends of Dorothy." Unaware of the historical meaning of the term, the NIS believed that a woman named Dorothy was at the center of a massive ring of homosexual military personnel. The NIS launched an enormous hunt for Dorothy, hoping to find her and convince her to reveal the names of gay servicemembers."

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friend_of_Dorothy

    Silly straights! When will they ever learn? lol

    That is so funny! I never heard about friends of dorothy until I was on a cruise with my soon-to-be ex-wife. We kept walking past this room with a sign on the door. I kept saying to her, we should go in and just say, hey we're friends of dorothy and start munching on their goodies, they'd never know! It wasn't until we got home that a friend of mine told me what it was. I thought I was going to wet my pants in laughter. If we had gone in I guess they would have quickly realized that the married couple probably were NOT friends of dorothy...but then again, they would have gotten one wrong!

    Love the line, discreet and yet a nice way to ask. Still, based on your posting, not sure that your gaydar was completely off? I'd watch for them (dogs included) to walk by again, see if he says hi! Or better yet, stop and start petting his dogs!
