... or is it Pickle Juice?
Yeah, I referenced Judy Blume! When I was young, I had this weird feeling that if you read a Judy Blume book as a boy, that somehow you would turn into a girl. Wishful thinking I'm sure, but back in third grade, those books were for GIRLS ONLY and they guarded them, teachers would lend them out to GIRLS ONLY, and goddess forbid one of us boys would even grab one, cuz it was for GIRLS ONLY!! It sort of reminds me of the South Park episode where the boys think that the little "who you are going to marry" thing was some sort of magical girl implement that could decide the future of all of mankind so Butters had to dress up like a girl named, "Margorine"pronounced, "Mar-jor-reen".
Anyway, women tend to be collectors too, but not the same sort of thing that guys usually collect. Its usually knick-knacks, jewelry, dolls, etc .. I saw the picture online and thought it was a perfect look for Wendy, who does like to have red hair, and it intrigued me to see her in front of a bunch of periodical storage boxes. Perhaps this photo was taken in a library or something like that, but its not often you SEE a picture like this. I thought about a girl collecting some sort of magazine, like a guy would collect Playboy magazines. I realize that most people store their comic books in mylar bags with backing boards and these containers are for catalogs or other printed material with a strong spine ... but really you should just relax as Joel and Mike sang on MST3k. Its just a caption!
Long story somewhat long, somewhere while writing this I came up with the idea of her losing a freckle each time she got one of my issues of Cosmo back. When they were all gone, she could become a guy again. I think its fairly original, and I wonder if I had the story of "The Birthmark" by Nathaniel Hawthorne subconsciously running through my head when writing this.
I most likely will not be posting tomorrow. The GF has the day off, I am working but she is meeting me for lunch. Then when I get home, I'll be installing an Air Conditioner, then we will be off to an awards' banquet where my daughter gets a varsity letter! Whoo! Its probably a 15 percent chance I'll have something up on Monday, but you just never know! More likely I might have time to visit a few TG blogs and perhaps make a few comments and catch up on others work I've missed. I also might answer some comments on here that I've been meaning to make.
I do have more captions on the way, including a blog exclusive for Leeanne that I wrote specifically for her. A picture I found gave me a storyline that she starred in that I think she'll like. More details to follow later on this week! Toodles!
DISCUSSION QUESTION: Did you have any thoughts like I did with the Judy Blume books back when you were young? That if you did something, you'd turn into a girl, or a werewolf, or whatever your weird child's mind could imagine? What was it that would trigger the change?
