Well, today, I went Fringe-ing.

For those who don't know, The Fringe is a local festival of the arts, with plays, buskers, and food trucks.

I went in a blue skirt and matching top, and wondered around, looking at the sights, applauding the buskers, and in true Fringe style, I picked a play based on the short blurb in the program to watch.

Throughout all of this, I passed without notice - unremarkable, undistinguished, essentially ... invisible.

I am not sure how someone like me has managed to achieve what is only a dream for many trans people, but there I was, "passing", without really even trying.

The downside of my day was that I had gone alone, and I think Fringe-ing, like a great many other things, is often better when done with a friend ...

Ah, well.

it's called the fringe festival here

same thing..

And why wouldn't you pass? Your a WOMAN!

But ... but ...

I was sure I would be unable to pass as a woman !

Unlike you, who could never pass as a guy ...

In my experience

The ability to pass is 90% attitude. Though I've testosterone poisoned, big hands,big feet and narrow hips, once I put on a skirt, minimal make up, remember to smile, women accept me as one of their own.

Just last week, I was at our local Bi-Mart and they had summer clothing on a rack, outside by the entrance that was on sale, so I stopped to look. Another lady came by, and started perusing the merchandise across from me. She struck up a conversation about the caliper of clothing offered at Bi-Mart and whether it was a good buy or not.

That day I was wearing a pair of white trousers I'd bought at that store and I explained that they were my favorite pants. She picked out a top to buy and we entered the store at the same time, continuing our conversation. She allowed that at the original price marked it wasn't a good buy but at the lowered price on the tag. ($ 6.99) she thought it was a good buy. I pointed out that the sign on the rack had said it was 40% off and that she'd get it more in the neighborhood of $4.00. She was delighted with that prospect.

Through the entire exchange, she was smiling and acting as if we were old friends. I love this kind of exchange with other people.

Cant you two please, just

Cant you two please, just this once, not squabble about which is the girliest & girl germs? I have decided to put my foot down and state without a doubt you are both two of the girliest girls I have ever seen. So there you have the unburnished truth. I have spoken

But papa...

She started it!

I did not!

quit getting me in trouble with Papa!

you shouldn't fib

Fibbing is bad and Papa will spank you.

I suspect...

That Papa is going to have to not use his bare hand to spank you two but get either a willow switch or one of those wooden spoons with a hole in the middle... I would suggest you both run for your rooms if he says three, two...
