{June 1, 2013}   Butch No Like Dress!

I'm on the right (my cousin is on the left). I just noticed how small she makes me look.

Dresses are not my style! I hate wearing dresses. I’ve only worn a dress on three occasions: my high school graduation when I was sixteen, my oldest brother’s wedding when I was eighteen and my youngest brother’s wedding today. I tried very hard to convince my brother to allow me to wear jeans, my fire department shirt and my camouflage hat but he wouldn’t have it. I was green with envy when I saw another butch there dressed in black slacks, boating shoes and a nice plaid button-up shirt. If I had to wear a dress, though, it was going to be a “proud” one. Like my rainbow colors?
My brother is now married with a bun in the oven. Where does the time go?!



After coming home from the hospital this morning I took a nap for a few hours. My day actually began around 12:30pm. Here’s how it’s gone:

I went outside to drink my coffee and have a smoke and I met a new friend. From the looks of his plump belly he'd had a hearty breakfast. I had to pick him up and take him away from the property before my Mother had a heart attack. He was a big boy, about 18" long. Gigantic for this part of the woods.

When I went in for my shower Ken and his ladies greeted my from the edge of the tub. Looks like he had a good night. Sorry Ken, you have to go. You’re not my type 😉

Then while at the playground my niece climbs atop the fire engine and states that she "wants to ride in big firetrucks when I get big like you Auntie". Awww!

This evening as I tried my dress on for one last time before the wedding to make sure I didn’t have to do any touch-ups my niece came waltzing into my room. Her jaw dropped to the floor and she said, “Auntie! You don’t wear dresses!”. Haha. She was only a year old when I last wore a dress at my graduation. She then went on to inform me that I can’t wear my camo hat and my work boots with the dress ’cause “it just doesn’t work”. God love her!
