I have a confession to make.
When I had my divorce I had a sex change.
I went from seldom to none.
I've been single for a long time!
I really don't understand why; actually I am a well balanced individual ... I have a chip on both shoulders.
Don't worry, deep down I am really quite superficial.
Maybe this would all be simpler if I just found a woman I didn't like and gave her a house!
I try and keep fit by jumping to conclusions.
On a more serious note: In this world of virtual reality I hope I can find someone who has the courage to be real, and can be comfortable with
my attempts at authenticity. I find these words from the "Velvetine Rabbit"
especially poingent. "Real isn't how your made", said the Skin Horse.
It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'
Does it hurt?' asked the Rabbit.
'Sometimes,' said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. 'When you are Real you don't mind being hurt.'
'Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,' he asked, 'or bit by bit?'
'It doesn't happen all at once,' said the Skin Horse. 'You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.”
What do you think? Would you like to be real with me?
