I had imagined today’s post to be pleasantly different. It was supposed to be amusing, and induce an ‘awww’ at the same time. But since I couldn’t think of anything of the sort, you will have to live with some poor quality scans of extremely old pictures.

I saw Stage Beauty, and it was funny, sweet, and involves gender bending! Which reminded me of aforementioned poor quality scans of old pictures. Here is a picture of my then-cross-dressing brother (no, not sister, brother) when he was a few years old.

And yes, he (no, not she) was a normal kid at most times.

So probably, feeling shafted for being born a male is a genetically inherited trait. And laugh, it’s supposed to be funny.

    No no. I think this is some sort of parental need to amuse themselves, which manifests itself like so at moments of weakness.

    pUl|: ARGGGH! Again, communication gap. This is not the sort of thing I ask my parents about, nor am I going to explain what I meant when I said “moment of weakness”.

    That’s the way I TALK. IT DOESN’T NEED EXPLANATION.
