Won't have a full-fledged post since I'll be wandering off to watch the NFL Draft tonight in about 15 minutes. I did want to post something since it is going to be a busy weekend, so I might not get a chance to post something in the next few days.
I found this picture and was quite smitten with it to say the least. The pose really lead me to a cross-dressing caption thought, with her holding her ankle as if she was a bit uncomfortable, but she doesn't look unhappy. From there, it didn't take much to think of a "walk a mile in another person's shoes" idea, but I wanted it to have a pleasant ending. "Because your mine, I walk the line" popped into my head, as I'm a big fan of Johnny Cash. I didn't feel the need to work that into the caption, but it played a part of the creation, so titling it that seemed really natural.
Here is what I wrote in the post on the Haven:
Since you don't seem to mind straight up cross-dressing, I figured I would make you "The Man in Black (Heels)" but at least its an acceptable height .. for now at least!On a side note, there is just something guttural and primal about Johnny Cash songs that draws me in. I was actually in a country western band when I was younger as it pretty much paid for the PA, microphones, and recording equipment for my punk band. Johnny Cash songs were never overly musical or hard to play, and sublimely repetitive, but they never droned on for me the way a Randy Travis did/does. That shuffling beat and basic bass line could just transport you to far away places that existed long ago.
DISCUSSION QUESTION: What draws you into a TG caption blog the most? Is it the caption content? The discussion around the captions? The real life stuff? The design? Figured I'd ask since I had a captioner recently message me asking for some pointers.
