It was the Wonderful American Eclipse of 2017 — the to start with overall solar eclipse to cross the total continental United States considering the fact that 1918. Throngs of spectators gathered along the route to totality, from Oregon to South Carolina, to observe the moon blot out the solar for about two and a 50 percent minutes and the midday sky plunge into darkness.
When Kerry Egan arrived at a area in South Carolina to witness the spectacle, she was jolted by a different sight: her 6-foot-1, 250-pound partner sporting “skintight, blaze-orange nylon shorts that in shape like incredibly hot pants.” This embarrassing scene just before Kerry — although the sky over seemingly turned inside out — became the basis for a revelation she had about her relationship.
