One thing led to another and she asked if my workplace did anything for Halloween. I said a few people showed up in costume.
Then she asked me if I was a good sport and wore a costume. I pulled out my iPhone and showed her a photo of how good a sport I was.
She was flabbergasted and took my iPhone to show her mother who is the receptionist at the salon. Her mother was also flabbergasted.
I said I should have visited the salon on my way home from work on Friday so they could have seen my "costume" in person. Wait 'til next year, my hairdresser said.
On Monday, no one at work mentioned that I went to work as a woman on my Friday, Halloween Eve.
I did mention it to a co-worker who was absent on Friday and who knows I'm trans. I showed him my photo and he showed me a photo of his Halloween costume (an edgy wizard).
Anyway, I am kind of down today. That's not true. I am very down today.
I loved going to work as a woman on Friday. I loved going out during my lunch hour and after work as a woman. I loved being myself on Friday.
Once a year is not enough. Dressing in boy mode for work is the real drag.
