It's 80 degrees around here this week and (to quote an old advertising slogan)- my number one fashion accessory becomes my skin.
I have a problem. Recently, my partner Liz with all the kindness and gentleness she could muster said "So, what are you going to do with all that "fur" on your skin? And. oh by the way, what did you do with the "Jergens" Natural Glow moisturizer I got you????
"Nuff said!" I know she is fairly sure I need a brick up the side of the head to get my attention: But this time I caught the meaning immediately I may want to rid myself of body hair and Casper the Winter Ghost skin. All of it is extra important this summer (as I have written here in Cyrsti's Condo) because I see this summer as my biggest "coming out" party yet.
Of course doing all the hair removal prep is just a matter of not procrastinating. Plus, since I never wear panty hose of any kind, I need to do an extra better job. It's not like I wear short skirts of any kind but I do have several "fave" longer skirts which feel great with shaved legs and no hose.
Then, there are the pesky under arm areas to take care of plus the remainder of my arm hair which HRT hasn't taken care of.
So, once again, this girl "thang" ain't easy as any generic will tell you but I can only say I'm thrilled beyond words to be able to transition into this summer. My diet has actually helped to give me a real live feminine shape too. I am like a kid with a new toy, or at least one just back from the repair shop.
Casper doesn't really scare me much either. After all just think of everything else I have been through on my transgender journey. Many other things were much scarier!
