“I was in a relationship with a girl for a long time when I was in high school, and then I was in a relationship with a punk rock drug addict who…” Wait, a lesbian relationship? “Yeah, yeah, well it’s… You know, I’m old enough that I can talk about that,” she says, before resuming her list: “And then I was in a relationship with somebody who was way, way older than me.
