Two months ago, Jim showed up at my place with this girl, Elizabeth. It wasn’t particularly unusual for us to enjoy the company of women. Most of the time we’ve known each other, I’ve had a girlfriend or Jim’s had a girlfriend, or we’ve both had girlfriends. Even when we didn’t have girlfriends, we had friends who were girls. So Elizabeth being a girl wasn’t itself a big deal.
