and Taking Her Shopping
I nervous? Oh, you bet! You see where I live I am too well
known and the town is too small, so I am very reluctant to go out in
public as Danielle. It's not so much a passable thing as it is my
vehicle is somewhat unique and very recognizable. Also, I can
hardly go out even as a guy without seeing 5 or 6 people that I
Anyway, I digress. Once inside the store it became very obvious to me
that nobody was paying me any kind of special attention. I was
just another woman, and I felt like I had died and gone to heaven!
We headed off to the shoe department where I found a pair of black
patent 3-inch heels which I ultimately bought. The "boys" kept
bringing me shoes to try on, and Lisa was taking pictures of me. I
don't know if anyone can imagine how I was feeling, but it was
wonderful! There I was out in public as a woman doing the kind of
things women do and absolutely nobody was any the wiser.
As we finished up in the shoe department, the other Danielle had to
leave for an appointment, so we parted company and Lisa (as a guy) and
myself continued to shop. We headed over to the sleepwear section
as I was looking for a new nightie which unfortunately I didn't find and
from there we went over to cosmetics where I obtained some concealer and
liquid eyeliner. We then headed to the registers to check out.
I giggled and whispered to Lisa, "Do you want to pay for this stuff at
the register for your Momma since I don't exactly trust my voice just
yet?" She agreed, and I dug into my purse and slipped her some
money. We proceeded to check out with no problems. Just a guy and
Perhaps I should explain a bit here. I am 21 years older than my baby
sister so chronologically, yes, I could be one of her parents.
Furthermore, I have recently gone to a gray wig. Believe me, even with
that gray wig, I don't look like some frumpy old housewife! The other
thing I should also mention was I was wearing tan lace slacks and a cute
little top and a pair of camel colored flats. Now I love to wear a dress
or a skirt and high heels as much as any girl, but believe me that can
be a real recipe for getting read in a heartbeat.
Anyway, back to the story. Once we reached the parking lot I
nearly exploded! I could not believe what I had just done!
My little sister just smiled and said, "See, I told you so! You just
have to believe in yourself!"
We stopped by a Burger King to get me something to eat which I took to
the room as my little sister had to get home to her family. When
we pulled into the parking lot at the hotel, my sister asked me if I
wanted her to drop me off by the back door, and I said, "Nope...front
door!" In a matter of a few hours I had become completely
fearless! Little did I know that the next day (Halloween) was
going to get even better!.
