If you haven’t been watching “It’s a Brad Brad World” then I’m sorry to say you missed out on some spectacular television. (The season finale was on Monday.) And not just because Brad is endearing (and also clearly so much better without Rachel Zoe), but because Gary is a total scene-stealer. In case you missed it (thank God for hangovers and Bravo TV marathons!), these gems from Gary’s Twitter feed should be explanation enough.

Honestly, there aren’t words. Just watch. (Or read the background story here if you REALLY want to cry. Which, duh! You do!)
When I was watching this on Monday night, I started crying. Not just because ohmygod, it's a Les Mis Flash Mob and I literally wake up every single morning hoping that maybe, just maybe, today will be the day everyone spontaneously bursts out into song on the bus, or at work, or the restaurant, or wherever (I'd go to jail, seriously, if it meant I could live my life as a musical). But because it was the kindest, most thoughtful thing I’ve ever seen. EVER. And because it takes a certain type of person to do this for someone he loves. AND THAT PERSON IS GARY.
He’s clearly one of a kind. He’s clearly the best. And I clearly need to fall in love with a gay man. Because there’s no way a straight guy would ever do this for someone.**
So, Gary Janetti. I'm dedicated my personal little sliver of "Say Something Nice on the Internet" Day to you. Because I have a feeling while we both find plenty to appreciate about people and their existence, it isn't something we like to talk about often. At least not, you know, out loud.***
Thanks for being the funniest guy on Twitter. And for your Les Mis Annivesary Flash Mob. Which will now forever be the stick with which I measure all of the men I date.
One Day More (as long as it doesn't involve always being quite this nice),
* Not in a mean way, just in a sometimes humans aren't always the best... ugh. You get it. I hope think am sure.
** Straight guys are great! Just not "Organize a spontaneous musical in our backyard" great.
*** Don't worry. This day only happens once every four years.
