Please, please, please… if you ever see me half way through a really rough week and I am making a really good attempt at being pleasant even though I want to scream, please be mindful of what you say.  If I have decided I want to wear nicer clothes and do my hair and make up a little more than I usually do for work in order to feel a little better about myself, please be mindful of what you say.

Acceptable  comments are –

“What’s the occasion?”

“Don’t you look nice today”

and

“Pretty”

Please never say the following….

“Why are you in DRAG?”

…..

It will make me shocked, appalled and immediately self-conscious on the spot.

It will also make me feel like crying for the remaining 9 hours (out of 13) that I still have to work with you for that day.

Just sayin’.
