Not Quite

I was standing up at the front desk at work yesterday, and one of my female coworkers asked me about something, I forget exactly what. One thing led to another through the course of the conversation, and I ended up blurting out, "I'm transgendered!"

There was the briefest of pauses, and she said, "Jaye, I never would have guessed you used to be a woman."

I guess I can understand her confusion. I present as a man most of the time, but I wear earrings and long, polished nails.

So close, yet so far away.
