Theres no way of telling whether your own mother is a milf, but if she likes to play bingo, its almost certain. The wine of Italy is stomped out by milfs, so when you taste the wine, you are tasting their desire. During the full moon a milf lactates a powerful sex milk that is instantly addictive to any man who tries it. He interrupts my reverie to explore the subject further Whats the difference between a milf and a cougar Cougars are hornier, I say, thinking fast A milf doesnt have to be horny at all, it just has to be a Mom Youd Like to F, but a cougar is horny, and it prowls So disordered, the seminarian breathes Calling people disordered is practically his favorite thing to do, and a tawny animal woman who chases after tender cubs is about as disordered as it gets I hope I never meet one I get very close to his face and fix him with my most feline expression Too late, buddy You already have I want to take the Gay Inkblot Test so bad I can taste it According to my father, they administer an inkblot test to all the men who are studying to become priests in order to determine whether theyre possessed by the handsome little demon of Same Sex Attraction He refers to it as SSA, both for jauntiness and to save time Im not sure whether the inkblots themselves have been somehow designed to be gayballs everywhere, kaleidoscopic bursts of abs, the words IM GAY doing backflips in the ink, a dong on the classic Rorschach butterflyor whether they just expect people to see gay things in them Either way, the test cannot be categorized as either scientific or sane, but my father places great faith in it Its foolproof, he tells me, with the self satisfaction of a man who knows he would pass If he took the test, he would see only Batmobiles, but these guys would see the naked body of Robin His beliefs about homosexuality are in general keeping with those of the church, with a few small but distinctive flourishes of his own Earlier this week, for instance, he informed me Elton John became gay because he was raised by too many aunts When the seminarian took the inkblot test, he saw bunnies You saw bunnies I ask Bunnies are fine, he says with authority Bunnies are very wholesome What you DONT want to see is half animal half humans That would show you were messed up Regular bunnies are just evidence you love Easter, but woe to the one who looks into the ink and sees a rabbit with the luscious lower half of a man Important do you understand how badly I would fail this test I would get something worse than an F But my father refuses to even let me look at the Gay Inkblots Hes afraid of what he might find He knows he was saved from ever seeing me bring home a girl named Boots with screws in her ears for one reason and one reason only because I got married when I was twenty one to a man I met in cyberspace We dont know if it works on women, they say cautiously, when I raise the subject amid the happy family clamor of the dinner table Thats not we havent studied that yet In factthe seminarian sighsno one knows how lesbians work Its easy, I say You put one leg over her leg, and then she puts her other leg over your other leg, and then you brush each others hair forever while not going to church He rolls his eyes Youre not a lesbian, Tricia, he tells me patiently You wear dresses If youre so determined to figure out whos gay and whos not, I say to my father, then why dont you ask someone who has actually met some gay people, gay people who havent had to pretend their whole lives not to be gay Gaydar is not real, and I hope never to be in the business of perpetuating crude stereotypes, but the priest who owns his own harp and gets ten different brown bagged magazines about the Royal Family delivered to him each month Is possibly not a straight man But Dad assures me the Gay Inkblot Test is quite sufficient for their needs So a word to my queer brothers who are longing for a life in the Church you are safer than houses, for the time being Go with God The seminarian talks frequently about his celibate powers, which mainly consist of being able to get up extremely early No, it doesnt sound good to me either, though its plausible my extreme deficiency of celibacy is the reason I often sleep till noon To protect and strengthen these celibate powers, he has developed a move called the celibacy block, where he holds up both arms in front of himself in the shape of a cross to ward off the person whos trying to seduce him mainly women, as he explains to me, who are wearing volleyball shorts when there isnt even any volleyball going on You know what would be a better idea, I tell him To just point a gun at any girl whos cute and yell I DONT THINK SO at the top of your lungs The celibacy block is necessary, it seems, because the woods are full of women who lust after men of the cloth We call them chalice chippers, the seminarian explains one Sunday, piling his plate with the cold cuts and pickles my mother always sets out after the last Mass Theyre everywhere, my father adds, vengefully forking a slice of roast beef, and goes on to tell us the story of a woman who once gave him a teddy bear soaked with your mothers perfume, to try and tempt me How would that even work Has any man who ever drew breath been seduced according to this method Also, I would love to date a woman who soaks teddy bears in perfume and sexually gives them to priests, because she has got to be crazier in bed than any atheist ever dreamed of being Maybe once you got back to her apartment you would see an even bigger teddy propped up against her pillow, soaked in holy water and waiting for you, with a Bible between its legs opened up to the Song of Songs Maybe its for the best, after all, that the seminarian knows what a furry is If they ever come for him, hell be ready I am not sure what the seminarian wants, exactly He acts with admirable propriety at all times, despite the fact that all the chairs in this house are upholstered with velvet and leave perfect impressions of your hindquarters whenever you sit down on them My mother obliterates the prints with the palm of her hand whenever she encounters them, but I sneak back in and sit on the chairs again when shes not looking The seminarian is unaffected by this campaign, however His sights are set on something higher The firmest desire I ever hear him assert is that he would like to have a lady wash his clothes, perhaps in a river Why a river, specifically I probe further, carrying two mugs of tea in from the kitchen to fortify us against the doldrums of four oclock I want to watch her rub my clothes on the stones, he responds I look down at him for a long moment, wondering if I should tip the tea out into his lap so he doesnt get too turned on by my gesture of servitude, and he shrugs I like domestic stuff, he tells me, his voice falling to a sudden romance novel huskiness So fuck a butler Men, it bears repeating, are so weird This is so far outside my area of sexual expertise its not even funny Tell me you want to role play a butlerfuck while pretending to serve your penis on a big silver tray and I will nod with understanding, and perhaps even offer to film it But you want a woman to wash your clothes in a river What are you, some kind of pervert A priest s uniform includes the following a white collar, either cloth or celluloid A black short sleeved shirt, black slacks and black belt, black shoes Black Gold Toe socks No other kind of sock is even considered Underwear, I think They buy these items from a special Sacred Clothing catalog, which for some reason is illustrated with pictures of priests laughing insanely, raising crunk cups to Christ, and posing in close embraces No one knows what theyre doing, but they appear to be having just as good a time as the Victorias Secret models Pillowfights do not seem far away When my father started saying the Latin Mass, he gave up the short sleeved shirts and slacks and took to wearing a cassock, which is just a long black dress for a man that everyone refuses to call a dress It is a dress, I have reiterated many times, trying to open peoples eyes to the truth And the pope wears what a baby would wear to the prom The seminarian wears a cassock too, because hes traditional, and he asked for thirty three buttons on his one for each year of Jesus life On formal occasions, both of them affect a pompom hat, which has no utility as far as I can tell and which no one has ever been able to explain to my satisfaction Really, a pompom hat I ask one day, when the seminarian and my dad are both sitting across the table from me decked out in their full regalia, looking like two dark Muppets from the realms of hell Its not a pompom, its a tuft, the seminarian tells me A pompom would be silly We dont call it a hat, we call it a biretta, my father adds, his tuft going absolutely wild Ah Why wear a regular hat, when you can wear a hat that sounds like a firearm I begin flipping through the latest Sacred Clothing catalog and pause at a picture of a hundred year old priest and a twenty five year old priest spooning each other in front of a stained glass window Look at these incredible fantasy scenarios, I say, turning the picture sideways Im taking this upstairs with me This is my Playboynow A few pages on, a photo of a female minister wearing vestments in all colors of the rainbow catches my attention Wait a minute, there are women in this My father screws his eyes up very tinily, as if to cause the female minister and all others like her to disappear Those goofy Anglicans, he says, and then makes the distressing moo cow noise he always makes when imitating the communications of feminists, who lurk in his imagination in rabid, milk spurting, man stampeding herds MooOOooo, we all gotta be equal, dont we he mocks, with such perfect assurance of my agreement that I wonder if he has ever really looked at me, or heard a single word Ive ever said Perhaps, when all is said and done, I am like a son to him than a daughter.What I love about this
