Ahh... cooler weather. The last time I wore these jeans, I was in San Francisco for the day. I purchased these jeans specifically to be able to wear with flat shoes. I really like the fit of Guess jeans and I only have one pair, which are super long. So long that I need to wear a minimum of two inch heels so that they do not drag on the ground. But these jeans fall just about perfectly for wearing shorter heels or entirely flat shoes.
I wanted to wear something comfortable for my day out as I had a goal for the day - go to Costco and get a picture taken for a new ID card. I frequently find myself shopping at Costco while dressed as a girl and occasionally I have had a cashier question whether or not I am the person in the picture. I have never been refused service, but I thought that maybe if I had an ID with a female picture on it that might go over better.
With much trepidation I chose a comfy outfit that I felt confident in and drove myself to Costco. The entire time the negative nay-saying portion of my mind kept trying to convince me that it was not a good idea. It knew that something was going to go wrong. Somehow I would be embarrassed or something would go wrong. The other half of my brain, the confident, go for it side, kept answering back and saying, nope, I am pretty sure that this will be no big deal.
I got to Costco and went in and walked up to the Member Services counter. I waited in a small line and when it was my turn I stepped up to the counter and asked the lady if I could have an ID with a different picture and if I could keep my original card as well. She said "sure," as if I had asked her a for a completely normal request. She started typing into the computer and I felt she deserved some sort of explanation, even though she did not ask for one in anyway. I told her "I would like an ID both ID's as sometimes it is confusing for some of your cashiers, depending on which gender I choose to dress as." She said "Well that is understandable, let's get your picture taken." I stepped to the appropriate place and she snapped my picture and printed my new card.
Maybe not the best picture, but it is thrilling to me. That day I shopped at Costco and used my new card when checking out and did not receive a single question. It was great! I was so happy that my confident side won out and I asked for what I wanted, because I got it and it was so super easy!
- Jules has started PT and things are going quite well. She is exercising and slowly but surely gaining back her strength.
- Duck season has started again, so that is something else absorbing my time. Is there any way we can make it so there is more time somewhere? I few extra hours in the day, maybe another day added inbetween Sat and Sun? Yeah I didn't think so.
Hope you all are well.
