Day 16: Transition

31 Jul

When President Trump stupidly tweeted that he wasn't going to allow transgender troops in the military it triggered a memory in me.

A little over a year ago I was playing cash at our local casino. I was doing quite well, up nearly $300. Two young women we're having a long conversation about what a pain it was to take a birth control pill every day. Hardship is a relative thing as I've known men who worked in foundries. I finally spoke up and said I understood where they come from as I have to take a daily hormone replacement. (I take Synthroid for my missing thyroid gland.) The young woman looked at me and said, "Are you transitioning? It's cool if you are". I said, "Yes, I'm going to be Melody." They both said, "Cool" in unison. I've never minded dumb but I have a hard time with stupid

I've been thinking about what I'm going to do when the weight comes off. First thing is to get some nice clothes. I've never been a snappy dresser but it would great to become one in my senior years.
