Adam, a colleague and a friend, his reaction to reading this blog was to smile, occasionally chuckle and nod. After he finished reading, he turned to me an said, “Uh huh. I wouldn’t have picked it either.” That has to be one of the most non-eventful reactions to date, and too be honest, was nice.
Interesting though, when you tell people something like this, the first comments after the initial reaction seem to be them telling you something, I don’t know why, but it’s been that way with nearly everyone. Perhaps any psychologists reading this could enlighten me. Turns out he has had one or two issues himself, including a tumor and stroke, and I never knew, so I learned today something myself.
Well it was the last day at work today for a couple of weeks as am on holiday. Ally and I talked for a while as I had actually packed and was ready to go already. I told her that I would be happy if she came up, but asked that she give me some notice as I will be Michelle for most of the time. She’s little concerned that I am going as Matthew and will come back as Michelle, I have assured her that I will be doing some things, like a wax, and a hair cut/style, but when I return I will be Matthew again. She seemed relieved, which I can’t understand because I have told her from the beginning that I will not let her see Michelle until she explicitly says she wants to.
