Boys Will Be Girls

So, there I was working, paying the rent, as they say, when a rather robust, muscular  woman popped out of a stall in the ladies room.

As I stood combing my hair, there was something unusual about her I couldn’t put my finger on, until she lifted her Chanel skirt, concealing more in her thong than your average bikini wax.

After arranging things like a seasoned decorator, she said, “Am I straight?”

I don’t know…are you?  No I didn’t say that.  Even then, Connecticut made a cameo.

“I think so,” I said, waiting for John Waters to come in and say…CUT.

She demurely rolled down her skirt, took a quick look in the mirror before sweeping out like Bette Davis, if Bette had calves the size of coconuts, that is.

I thought of this odd encounter, as I made out my rent check for March.

Oh well…

all in a day’s work Susannah, all in a day’s work.

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Thanks.

  1. My eyes snapped open, even though the time was late. Is this fact or fiction?????

    Gender specific toilets are archaic. We have to lose the two gender model in favour of the facts of modern life. Granted: it’s a shock when it first catches you on the hop. But inclusion for all is the right way forward. We all need to pee, irrespective of what we pee through!

  3. I saw a stunning girl in center city. She looked as if she walked right off of a runway … gorgeous. If it weren’t for her unusual height, which was that of an NBA star, it would have been business as usual. I don’t care where people pee as long as they wash their hands and throw their towels in the trashcan.

    • I guess it maybe the new norm like in Europe. I was just surprised is all. Just read about the transgender kid, hate that term by the way, like they made him in shop…in Virginia who wants to use the boys’ bathroom. He’s a boy now you see, but people don’t treat him like one. And if you knew what he went through to become your be, you’d be in tears. Sigh

    I have lived alone for 15 years I reckon. The cat can walk in anytime and does. I do not have the same allowances when she doing probably the only work she ever does.

    It’s so hard to tell which way the wind blows sometimes, Susannah. And her/his question was so loaded.
    I was in a stall a few decades ago, when the sound of the person peeing next to me seemed to be coming from a great height. I bent down to sneak a peak at the feet next door and sure enough, they were pointed the wrong way!

  6. At least she was concerned about being properly “dressed.” Haven’t seen that myself but then again, I live in a more provincial area.

    If you let a (ahem) straight line like that pass un-pounced upon, you’re a better man than I am sister, no matter where the hell you were raised!

    Another encounter that could only happen to you. You would be bored to death here.
