0 Girls 2 Gays

One of our favorites, David, is in the middle. This photo was shot

For now, Tyra Sanchez and I have settled into a Monday-night routine that includes “1 Girl 5 Gays,” an MTV Canada program that Logo airs and combines the old getting-to-know-you game “20 Questions” and the panel format.

Part of the fun is answering the questions, too — whether about each other or ourselves. Sometimes the answers lead to revelations that lead us to hit “pause” and discuss, while others are no surprise at all. A few examples from the other night:

QUESTION 1: “If the other person were a holiday, what would he be?”
Me: “Probably Halloween, because you got so excited about going to Salem, Mass., last year.” (He and his friend Wendy went as Fred and Daphne from “Scooby-Doo.”)
Him: “Christmas? It’s the only thing I’ve ever seen you care about.” (Note to self: Be more … happy, I guess?)

QUESTION 2: “When’s the last time you cried in public?”
Me: “I don’t do that. Even when we were in the room when my dad died, I waited until nobody else was around and only then did I let loose — and when my sister walked in, I got all embarrassed. I think the last time before that would have been like 2000, watching ‘Babette’s Feast.’ Which is partly why I won’t see sad movies in public. I don’t want to be bawling like a baby.”
Him: “I cried during ‘Finding Neverland’ — all those kids entering the theater! I pulled myself together, but then started crying again when we left the movie and got in the car.And  I cried so hard at my friend’s wedding that her father said, ‘Jeez, he must really like you.’ ”

And probably my favorite answers of the night:
“Fill in the blank: ‘I like to play __________.’ ”
Me: “Mind games.”
Him: “Beyoncé.”

The shirt: Long-sleeved cotton butt0n-down from the J. Crew outlet store in Anthem.
The pants: Dark-wash jeans from Uniqlo, New York.
The shoes: Tumble loafers by J. Shoes, from the now-defunct goclothing.com.
