I hope itís not too subtle. I wasnít sure how else to depict Rainís voice suddenly coming out ALL wrong.
This might sound kind of strange, but this is actually one of my favorite pages so far as it is based on one of my own very epic failsÖ and epic wins. Who wants to hear about the true story that inspired it? Well, Iíll tell you anyway. ^_^
About five years ago, on what was very possibly my first real outing into the real world presenting as a woman, a couple knowing friends and I went to a diner. Iím always quiet, but I donít think I opened my mouth once from the moment we stepped outside. Not until it came time to order. What came out of my mouth though was not the female voice Iíd been practicing all along to myself though. It was as though being silent for so long rendered me unable to find it on the spot like that. The end result sounded like Mickey Mouse trying to do falsetto after having already sucked in some helium. I was so embarrassed, and my ďwonderful, supportive friendsĒ burying their faces in their menus to try and hide their laughter wasnít helping. The funniest part: the waitress never caught on (or at least, she never gave the slightest inkling that she noticed anything was up). Maybe she thought it was just some weird inside joke? Whatever the case may be, one of the most embarrassing moments of my life was also kind of a big achievement for me at the same timeÖ because I passed even after practically giving myself away.
So, without fail, I look at this page and I remember that and I laugh. Every time. ^_^
