Thanks, Guérin!

My partner Lenny was also significantly older than me, though not nearly as old as Quentin. We weren’t an interracial couple, but with his being Jewish and second-generation Polish, we were very much intercultural, me being about as white bread Middle American Bible Belt as a person can get by virtue of birth.

Difference and diversity are awesome to me. Makes my blood rush hotter. I wish more people could feel that sometimes.
