Today marks the final day in my first complete week of coming to work dressed in clothes that properly indicate my true gender!* This is a big deal to me, so for any of you reading please note that congratulations of any type will be accepted, so please please, send flowers, cards, money...
I just finished a week and it is weird. It is like the strangeness is already fading. I am almost feeling perfectly comfortable around strangers now. In fact where before I was terrified of seeing a reaction now I am looking for them. I make eye contact with everyone out there just to see if I am passing? You know what? I am pretty sure from the looks I see on people's faces that they are just seeing a big girl.
* Isn't it funny how I am so particular about the words I use? If I wrote 'dressed as a woman' it sounds like I am just pretending to be a woman, so I have to go through all these extra words just to say, once again, in case you forgot, that I'm not just pretending, I am a woman.
