Saturday-Sunday Short-Shorts

I canceled my Fantasia Fair trip because I can't leave my blind dog with my MS'd wife for a week.

I thought by now that my dog might be better acclimated to her blindness (she lost her eyesight July 4th weekend). She has improved, but not enough so that she would no longer be a burden. So I pulled the plug and will miss the Fair again this year.

On the other hand, I have an opportunity for a girl's evening out this Sunday!

A few days ago, I ran into one of my best friends from high school. We went to different colleges and our separate ways after high school, so we had a lot of catching up to do. It was great to see him again and it brought to mind the last time I saw him.

It was over 20 years ago. My wife and I were shopping in a department store and as we queued up to check out, I noticed my friend in the next queue. He was with his wife who was standing in line behind him watching as he placed his purchases on the counter and waited for the cashier to ring him up.

His purchases were a half-dozen women's dresses and he looked sheepish making the purchase (been there, done that). I did not say a word to acknowledge my presence because I did not want to embarrass him in case the dresses were for him.

How do you broach the subject with someone you suspect is one of us?

If I encountered him while I was out en femme, I would not think twice about saying hello. That sure would be an ice breaker!

    I know you'll be sorry to miss Fantasia Fair, but you are doing a great and compassionate thing. In the final few months of my last dog's life, through the summer of 2014, I canceled or shortened several trips and other engagements so I could be home to take care of him. It was rewarding for both of us, and left me feeling I had done everything possible when he finally passed that September. The last weeks we had were not always easy, but were the least I could do for a good, loyal and loving friend. - Diane

  2. Stana there is only one way to break the ice and that is for you to come out and as Trans and leave the ball in his court

  3. When he says "what have you been up to?" you know what to say.

    If you're going to email another meeting, send a link to the blog. That will give him a chance to digest and maybe "come clean" himself. I think if someone I knew came out to me, I'd think hard about just saying "me too."

  4. My dog had major surgery on his neck 5 weeks ago, but he's better now. I can't imagine how hard it would be if my dog went blind.

  5. Take care.
    And i hope you find a way to just bring up him buying those dresses.
