Julia at http://www.juliasplace.org.uk has given us this photo prompt this week. Here’s my suggestion below:
I keep them to remind me.
Stephanie wore calf length leather boots, as soft as butter. She wore kitten heels, as sexy as Audrey Hepburn. She wore open toed 5 inch stilettos, as impractical as they were beautiful. She is gone now, as if she never was.
Steve, on the other hand, wears steel capped boots, industrial and safe. He wears walking boots, deep-treaded and clumpy.
Oh yes, I keep them to remind me. Of who I was and who I became.
I’ve never regretted the gender reassignment surgery. I just wish men’s shoes were more attractive.
