My Friend and Sister, Heidi Phox
One of the most exciting things about exploring my female side is
discovering a new dimension that I haven't experienced before. For
example, the first dimension I ever experienced was borrowing my
sister's underwear and socks. Next came my mother's bra, and then
pantyhose, and then dressing up completely like a girl from the neck
down. I vividly remember the first time I tried a wig and makeup along
with the clothing, I remember my first venture outside beyond the
confines of my house, and I remember the first time I ordered a meal
from a drive thru dressed as a woman. Over time, however, I've noticed
that new dimensions I experience aren't always physical but emotional as
well. Once I began socializing with other girls online as a woman, I got
to experience the emotional thrill of actually making new friends and
sharing thoughts, experiences, and notes with them. And one of the best
discoveries of all, emotionally, was when I would see another girl who
was so pretty that it actually made me jealous because as a guy, I've
never once been jealous of another guy's looks...ever.
Being jealous of someone can surely have a negative connotation, but in
this case, I think that if another girl makes me jealous, that is a
compliment to her because she looks so good. Well, today I want to blog
about my newest friend and sister, a girl who constantly makes me
"jealous". ;-) I actually knew of this girl for several years because you can't go online to social sites like Flickr and not notice
her, but I had never attempted to make contact with her until recently
when a mutual friend happened to mention that this girl and I were from
the same city. I was like O-M-G-! when I found that out, and so I
immediately reached out to her, and our friendship was quickly
I found out that we live less than 20 minutes apart; our children are
the same ages; we both have the same philosophies on life; we both go to
the same church; our wives are quite supportive; and we both like the
San Diego Chargers! ;-). It's one thing to connect with girls and talk
about life in general, but it's quite another when you're so close to
someone geographically that you can start talking landmarks, addresses,
and specific places to shop. I quickly developed a special bond with
this girl, and I am so proud to call her more than just a friend but to
count her as a sister as well.
We don't meet frequently because we both understand that family
obligations come first, and it is difficult for girls in our position to
find a time when both of us can be girls at the same time, but when the
opportunity has arisen, we've been sure to make the best of it and of
course take lots of pics! It is such a
relief to have someone so close who has so much in common with me and is
a sweetheart to boot.
Early on in our friendship, we began talking about my online blog, and
it was only natural that this girl considered creating a blog of her own
because not only does she have so much to tell, but she has a catalog of
stunning photographs the likes of which I have yet to see anywhere else.
And I am not just being nice when I say that; I'm being JEALOUS!!
Hopefully the two of us can collaborate again soon in the near future,
but in the meantime, you must add this girl's new blog to your bookmarks
because she redefines the term stunning.
Without further adieu, I am pleased to announce to the world that I am
friends and sisters with the lovely Heidi Phox!
