when i knew #7.
by Michael King
“I was 22. I kissed a girl. Well, she kissed me. I turned around, walked to my car, and sat there.
“I should have known in high school, when I looked at my best friend during a sleepover and wondered what it would be like to kiss her.
“I should have known when I rewatched the lesbian kiss in Dodgeball over and over and over.
“I should have known when I became obsessed with Manny Santos on Degrassi. (To this day, I still have a thing for the Latinas.)
“But I didn’t know any of those times. I knew immediately after this girl kissed me.”
