Equal-Opportunity Meddling

I had plans yesterday to watch some of the NCAA women's basketball tournament with my straight friend Mary. When I arrived at her condo, a woman I didn't know was seated in front of the TV. As Mary introduced us, it took me one second to absorb that this woman was a lesbian.

I can't say whether my friend was engaged in calculated matchmaking, but when I departed several hours later, Mary whispered to me at the door, "She's cute, isn't she?"

Being set up has never worked well for me. However, as I drove home I decided it's a sign of progress that these days our straight friends are as hot to make a mess of our love lives as our queer friends.
