Sherry wanted to get together for dinner on January 20, 2022 and I was all in!
I had already planned a day of errands, culminating in a haircut (for the male me). So I made a few adjustments to my day to get out for dinner. The day started fairly early, shooting the third of our Rules of The Road video. I am very much enjoying doing this.
I then spent a few hours at home, dressed, which I do not often do. Then I headed out the door for my haircut. I always dress for a haircut, get there, remove my wig and get my hair cut. This time was no different, but I made one slight request.
I had allowed my hair to grow. My hair never gets long, it just gets thick and unmanageable. If I went ten years between cuts, I believe I would not have shoulder length hair, just a huge tangled mess. But given that I had longer hair, I asked Dana to give me a woman’s cut. If it didn’t work out, we’d just buzz it.
My hair is greying and kind of stringy, not because I don’t care for it, that’s just what I got. Well Dana worked her magic and I made an executive decision, the wig was put away and this girl was going out as herself!
I will say, I have never felt more feminine! I was down right giddy! You will see no photos of me like this, but in our next video, you will see this girl live, up close and personal!
So wigless, before I met Sherry, I went to Ulta. The feeling without the wig was amazing. The weather was awful, as my hair got frequently covered with snow. But walking around Ulta, carefully shopping for makeup, interacting with SAs and customers, all as me was transformative. It was so liberating!
I then went to the shopping area where we we meeting and casually browsed a few stores. It may well have been that there simply were few customers due to the snow, but I was getting smiles and waives from people in the stores and even from stores I simply walked past. Never was who and what I am more obvious.
I sat at the bar glowing before Sher got there. Our dinner was wonderful. Just two girlfriends being girls. I loved it and I love my sister, Sherry. And I loved being so vulnerable, so open, so honest, so feminine, so me. It was amazing.
Will I do it again? Maybe under certain circumstances. I believe that my wig, especially the one in the photos above, does make me a more attractive woman. But for those few hours, I really felt like I a woman and it was a blessing!
