My wife and I were walking along the South Portland Green Belt when we came upon Chris and Robert who were kissing on a bench. When they saw us they asked if we were offended to which we replied “not at all”. They went on to tell us they were gay. I responded sarcastically that didn’t realize that. That’s my humor. Then I said to them ” Don’t you think it’s strange that State of Maine just made the sale of fireworks legal but you guys can’t get married?” They were happy with my response. We parted and wished each other well.
