Can you keep a secret?

Train Conductor


Please don't tell his boss. If it gets out that Asher periodically wears a skirt to the office, his colleagues will poke fun at him. It's hard for Asher; the stress from pushing a lever back and forth is overwhelming, and his coping strategy manifests itself in woman's wear. He figures that sitting at a desk all day allows him the opportunity to inconspicuously wear a skirt. I've told him time and time again that he's getting dangerously close to being caught, but with the economy in the state that it is, and with the difficulty the lever has been giving him lately (I've suggested he change the batteries, but that stubborn kid won't listen to me), his apparel choices are evident that he's crying out for help. I've proposed that he quit his job and let me support him - maybe we can take another whack at potty training. Unfortunately, Asher is a man with priorities and he won't stop unless he feels he's accomplished his lever duties. In the meantime, he'll continue to cross the line between suitable toddler apparel and objectionable dress-up clothing. His coworkers know he has pirate costumes and the like; they've seen as much at their playdates. 3 year olds can be quite harsh, and until Asher succumbs to the taunts and ridicule, he'll carry on and push that lever back and forth in hopes that the train eventually gets somewhere, all the while wearing his nylon/polyester blend gingham skirt.

I clearly need to hang around with Asher a little more. This kid has personality!

Just pretend he's of scottish heritage and then he'll have men who understand his need to wear a skirt.

Derek used to prance around butt naked in heals and tiara. That was fun. Cyrena would call him queen Derek. Then one day he found Dinosaurs and his whole world turned around. It's never too late for our little cross dressers.

Alexis finds it funny to dress Eli up in dresses! Although I find it funny to put his hair in pony tails when it gets really long! He can't win either way!
