Only human

How I look today. Right now. Spitting image of a man, yes?

Take a look at the above picture. Do I look to you that I might perhaps be a man? A boy? A guy?

I did two things today that I do not often do. I wore my glasses and pulled my hair back into a bun. I know it's not the most attractive thing for a young woman to do, but hey, I was only going out to study and run a few errands, not go on a photo shoot.

Walking into the post office, an elderly but spry man holds the door open for me, I thank him and he says:

"Sneak right in there. That's what you're supposed to do for girls."


"You are a girl, aren't you?"

Whoa. Thoughts? Comments? Anyone?

  1. I'm always amazed how different people can look when they change something. . .you don't look like a man though. lol, but your expression is kind of funny.

    I felt a little embarrassed the other day when a couple girls from class asked me how old I was. One thought I was 19 or 20, asking me if I was even old enough to drink. . .legally, lol. Then when I said, "well, I'm old enough to rent a car" she said wow I feel young now. Ha ha, I couldn't say how old I really was after that. (For some reason they started being really nice to me.)
