Prompt for July 23, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

When I told my parents I was gay I expected a reaction, any reaction. Instead my mother looked at me and smiled while my father just sat in his chair, muttered “it’s about time you figured that out” or something like that, and went back to see what was on the boob tube. More cooking shows? I mean, I thought this would be momentous news for my family, something on the order of a birth, death or marriage event. What I got was … acceptance? I’m not sure that I could handle that.

Post a link to the story in the comments.
