CENTRAL SCOTLAND: Those supersize Superman underpants seemed like an amusing stocking filler at the time, but last Xmas’s joke seems less funny as my husband’s appointment with a (female) dermatologist for a full body check looms this afternoon. He called me just now, after reality dawned about what he’d pulled on in the dark before he headed out to work this morning.
Still, it could be worse.
Earlier today I found myself engrossed in the heart-wrenching story of Christine Benvenuto, who published her story on ‘living with a man who wants to be a woman’ in the latest Guardian Weekend magazine. After three children and a vibrant sex life, Tom decided to live life as a transsexual. ‘It began with a pair of purple cotton underpants. A woman’s underpants,’ she tells us.
Let’s hope the doctor doesn’t read too much into Adrian’s tight blue body-huggers and his private aspirations.
I’ll keep you posted.
