    Have you left your husband at home ?

    I was shopping in my local supermarket this morning when I noticed a lady standing in the aisle looking confused , so I asked her if she was OK ? she replied that she usually shopped in Sainsburys with her husband so she felt a little lost by herself in a different supermarket . She then went on to say , " You appear to be managing OK , have you left your husband at home ? " I looked at her and smiled then replied , " Best place for him , he hates shopping !"

    OK naughty me !

    I met her a couple more times and her trolley was filling up so she was doing fine without dear old hubby , I know how she feels !!!

    Oh Teresa, sometimes we all need to smile more and between this post and the last one from Bobbi46 on her thread I am certainly doing that.

    Sara,
    Don't ask me if I looked passable ! It was a horrible windy , rain soaked morning , I thought it wiser to wear my old wig but the weather had made me look as if I'd been dragged through a hedge backwards but then most others were looking the same way . Also lets not forget it is half term week and the long suffering mothers had dragged themselves out , hardly a touch of makeup and a kiss and a promise on their hair with all the kids in tow !

    Crissy,
    I usually have a smile on my face because I know so few of these interactions would happen if I was a guy , to touch the lady's arm and chat to her like that wouldn't have happened in male mode .
    The real me ,no going back.

    Teresa I smile always when talking to others mostly because I feel good being my true self but also it opens up others to a more comfortable situation. I too have found myself ever so lightly touching other womens arm while talking, these are just two small things that I have just taken to as a natural part of myself. Good for you for leaving your husband home, it's a real pain dragging around a complaining grown child who won't even hold your purse for security reasons.

    It may of course be a bit disturbing to sense that one is really not so firmly anchored to the gender one was born into.

    Very cute story Teresa. I think you present very well and always look good.
    And the proof of that is, when you don't feel or look just right, and still get
    compliments and thought of as a woman. That's the ultimate validation and
    has to make you feel great!

    HAHAHAH, Yes men always wanting to try on our clothes... What's wrong with them???

    Hi Teresa,

    What a wonderful compliment! Especially on a day when you're not feeling all put together. I absolutely love your quick witted comeback.

    Paula,
    Thanks for the compliment but it is a lesson in trying too hard and what it really takes to blend in .

    Lana ,
    I'm sure it's not something you would be caught doing , as for Harry would you trust him ?

    Teresa, I quite often encounter interactions while shopping as a male, so I don't think your experience is unique to gender presentation. Surely it is just part of the human experience, is it not?

    I agree with Sharon. Just today I was in a local grocery/variety store and offered to assist a short woman by getting tissues off the back of the top shelf. As my wife is only five foot two I recognize a short woman in distress. All the time I am either asked or volunteer to retrieve wares from top shelves. And, if you want to strike up a conversation with a woman in a store I suggest wearing a Peanuts/Snoopy graphic tee shirt. Snoopy is a chick magnet.

    Nice, Many of us older people find it hard to shop in strange places. My wife gets mad because I talk to people in the super markets. Well I talk to everyone anywhere. It is really interesting, especially in the super stores. I get to talk about all kinds of stuff. Over the years at the large discount stores such as Marshal's I've helped women find the bra they are looking for and telling a couple which ones I prefer.

    Sharon,
    Maybe you missed the point , the lady obvioulsy thought I was female otherwise why did she ask the question ? I have a male friend in my painting group now who refers to his partner as his husband but to ask a person you think is male if he's left his husband at home isn't going to happen in a supermarket .

    Liz,
    I'm like you I chat to anyone , once you've broken the ice people do respond .

    Lana,
    You're in an ideal position now to blame it all on Harry , it's what women do isn't it ? I have to be careful who I blame as my name hasn't changed very much .

    Teresa, what a lovely little cameo of your shopping trip. Isn't it amazing how little conversations like this can make your day.

    Ciara,
    I did feel for the lady , it's bad enough when your local supermarket have a swap round and everything has moved let alone shopping in a totally strange one , especially when hubby isn't to hand .
    The real me ,no going back.
