Straight and to the point ... an absolute favorite!
I wanted to post about my surgery today, but I wanted something for everyone to look at .. hence this caption which I think should be in the my Top 5 list. I know you can find it under the label "Dee's Favorites" but it was posted almost 3 years ago, so it might be new to most people that hopped aboard within the last year or two.
This is what I posted at the time:
This is probably one of most well received captions that I've ever done. It's onto it's 2nd page of comments, 1300+ hits, and it was only posted last December. I think it struck a nerve for many people, in that it is somewhat reasonable to assume that this COULD happen. The person that it was captioned for was appreciative, though I was as well, since I'd probably not had any drive to even MAKE a caption like this if her preferences hadn't led me to it.You can find the discussions in the comments HERE:
The picture lends itself to the story in spades, and I didn't have to drone on that much about what was going on. Here is the set-up, here is what is happening right now, and here is the plot twist that drives home all that was mentioned before. I'd like to say that I labored over this mightily, but I think it took me 10 minutes total once I found the picture.
My only negative thoughts dwell on how much degradation should be incorporated into a caption. How far is too far? I guess you could say that it probably depends on the recipient and what their threshold is.In the end, does the scenario depicted go too far if it was real life, but is fine in terms of fantasy / wish fulfillment? Please discuss .. as usual, there are no right and wrong answers to any of these discussions.
Over time, I've grown to LOVE captions like this one, and it has really expanded my own preferences. Who wouldn't mind getting something like this in their in-box? I think its made me much more open-minded about TG Captions, which has made me a better captioner as well. I'd never have met people like Leeanne and that expansion of thoughts have kept me relevant while many of my TG peers have sort of wandered off. Three years ago I might have been at least inwardly pissed if someone made ME a sissy or a drag queen in a caption, but its not such a big deal anymore. I was always open and understanding about it, but that certainly wasn't for DAMIEN! At least now, I can imagine it in fantasies and that is a big leap forward. Thanks to everyone for expanding my horizons!

Went in this morning and found out I had a gravel road in my kidney, so they went in once again with a claw machine with a laser at the end of it and started blasting shit. I'm really getting sick of this, and quite puzzled why I'm making so much so quickly. I've changed my diet and lifestyle and don't seem to be getting any better. Its so disheartening, and when confronted with it in the pre-surgery area, I think knowing that hurt more than any actual stone has ever hurt me. I am trying to stay positive, but I really don't want to spend the rest of my life having surgery every 8 months to remove Mike & Ike sized stones. My current work has been great about this, but does this mean I'm stuck there for the rest of my 40+ years left of employment? So many things to think about.

I-I-I-I-I don't want no kidney's stones!
