No Fun

After I finished my walk this morning, completed part of my vocal training homework and ate a bowl of some sort of cereal which had a strong resemblance to tree bark, I wondered how much of this I would be doing if I wasn't transgender and wanted to look my best. Of course, I would not be doing my vocal training but the rest, possibly.

Again and again, I am reminded of those novice cross dressers who say they will never pass without considering what steps need to be taken to have the best feminine presentation possible. Our skin comes to mind as another area of upkeep which needs extra attention. I make sure all my makeup is removed at night before applying my moisturizer/ wrinkle cream. As, I need all the help I can get for my nearly 69 year old skin.

I just like to know I am doing my best to look good because again, I need all the help I can get. And yes, that includes looking at some of my most unpleasant parts of my body. For another "tongue in cheek" look, let's check in with Connie and her comment on checking for your skin tone, by looking underneath your wrist:

"So, you're asking me to look at one of my most unfeminine physical parts to determine which color I should wear, are you? Not only are my wrists large, I have an ugly scar from a botched surgery after a work accident left me with two severed tendons to my thumb. Add the fact that my veins (no matter their color) tend to pop out in a masculine way, either from the heat or from strenuous physical activity, and the underside of my wrists are really dysphoria triggers. Nevertheless, my veins are blue, and I am as cool with my femininity as the colors that look good on me! :-)"

Cool!

  1. Did you ever eat a pine tree? According to the late Euell Gibbons, many parts are edible! I'm aging myself again.....:-)

    Speaking of walking in the morning, I walk about two miles every day just doing my job. The five block walk up a steep hill to the bus is the most difficult, though, even considering that my job requires that I push around a water tank that weighs 250 pounds, full. For some reason, this morning, I had a sort of out-of-body experience. As I was walking, I could feel the bounce of femininity in my steps, and I had a clear picture in my mind, as if I were across the street watching myself. It was more than just an imagining, and I must say that I'm really happy being able to walk like a lady without having to think about it at all anymore.

    I still don't like the sound of my own speaking voice, and it needs my concentrated effort to remain feminine beyond a few sentences. I look forward to the day when it will be just as free and easy as my walk has become.

    As far as my skin regimen goes, I have to admit that I fall asleep far too often with my makeup still on. I'm so tired after all that strenuous walking, after all! :-)

  2. Oh, I forgot to give my shout out to Aretha, as my walk this morning did make me feel like a natural woman. ;-)

  3. I thought you used to date Euell!
    What a nice story about your out of body feminine experience!
    I'm afraid most of mine came from Tequila! :)

    1. I had a date with Euell once. The date was in my Grape Nuts cereal, and it was yummy. :-) He offered me a banana, but I turned it down (maybe he had it turned up, though). Either way, it did not sound "appealing" to me. :-)

    2. I thought you smoked the banana peels with Euell!
