Sally's Short Stories

Recommended Posts

Sally

This is a self promotion, my blog has two short stories at the moment, others will come so be fore warned! I have shared 'The Awakening' with a few individuals here and was asked by most of them to post it, I hope that you will read and enjoy my work, I take pride in it and love to share.

Thank you for reading and feel free to leave a comment,

Sally

I replied to ALONE - it hit dead center with me. I use the word actor instead of puppet - but puppet shows a real lack of being able to contol your destiny and seems so much more descriptive. I especially liked your dictionary intro which set up the lead-in so well. You delivered the idea that the word ALONE to us transgendered has a very poignant and specialized meaning. It's early in the morning and I haven't had my coffee - or I just might go back to bed and sob a bit - darn it Sally... we are such a sad bunch here sometimes.

I've added another one, it actually is written around an excerpt from an E-mail that I sent to my therapist before I scheduled my first session. So this is actually much older than the others.

Enjoy,

Sally

Well she's at it again!

I've posted another short story.

For those of you afraid to visit because you don't have time to read a short story, mine should better be described as essays - 2 pages is really long for me! :)

Love ya,

Sally

Hey Sally :)

I read your 'waking up' story, It was written very well, I could see everything that was expressed in clear detail, it also made me cry.

Much luv, Jacci xo

Thanks, Jacci,

That one was written kind of more for 'us', but like the others they are kind of an attempt to explain to 'them' that 'we' are just human beings and 'we' have feelings and dreams to!

Someone 'stop' me before I 'air quote' again!

Love ya,

Sally

Well, it's a Saturday and Sally has been writing again.

Don't you all just wish she'd get a life and stop writing and begging you to read it?

For those of you who do like my writings here's another.

Love ya,

Well I've been at it again, That brings the entries to 16, actually one is a rewrite so there are only 15 different stories or poems.

I hope that some of you will take the time to read them, I feel a great release and even joy when I write and I hope that some of you can feel the same.

Even reading a sad story can serve as a release and make you feel better.

Let my therapy be your therapy as well.

Here's that address again:

...more!

You asked for it, there is more!

Another new one from the never ending store house of words, Sally's Word processor!

"It slices, it dices and best of all it is the world's fastest home cole slaw maker!"

It's Word - O - Matic!

Don't accept substitutes, only Sally's Word - O - Matic comes with the satire blade, the irony blade, the exclusive pathos blade and the patented pun attachment!

Oh, did I mention that I have added a new essay?

Love ya,

Sally

That newest work was inspired by a topic posted by KristieTS, "Where Are The Trannsexuals From?" and it started me thinking - always dangerous! :o

"If women are from Venus and men are from Mars, what planet do transsexuals come from?" :unsure:

Enjoy a little slice of my own special brand of insanity, there's plenty more where that came from. :wacko:

Love ya,

Sally

By the way, this one isn't depressing at all! :D

      I tear up at just about anything even remotely sad. Even some sad music can get the water works going. I’m okay with it though. Feels good to be stretching my emotional range.

      Found out my nephew Nick came out as genderfluid and mom accepted it.Asked him where he got his advice and told her from me.She told me thank you.My cousin Lewis,he did take it well too and is glad I helped out with advice.They both noticed he loved dressing as the opposite gender for a long time.14 years old and wants to dress as Nicole.

      I cry at the ending scene in LOTR-Return of the King.  When he sees Arwin.  And it continues when he kneels before the four hobits and tells them “you kneel for no one”.   I lost it before now I’m a wreck.  Lol

      The other I watched a documentary on elementary particules and physics and I cried loll
    • ShawnaLeigh
      I freakin cry over commercials!   Movies and TV series with sad or tear jerking scenes plow me right under.  My wife laughs at me so much over this.   I admit I like the freedom to do so now.  I don’t have to hold it in or hide it anymore.   😭😢😉
    • ShawnaLeigh
      I think you are doing great with your makeup.  I’m very inexperienced but it looks really good to be.   It amazes me that there are still places that still are homophobic.   It’s a bit out of your way but the University of Vermont is extremely tolerant and supportive toward LBGTQ and the pay well too.  Vermont is a wonderful place to transition so we will take you!!!  
    • KathyLauren
      I always used to tear up watching emotional movies.  Now I do so even more.  The nice thing is that I no longer have to feel self-conscious about it.

      Well that sucks. Hopefully you can find another way forward. I don't know what the situation is in Arkansas, but here it's legal to discriminate against trans people. Our colleges are pretty tolerant though. May you find an employer that doesn't suffer from recto-cranial inversion.   Hugs!

      Well, I finally got the talk by my principal due to two calls from unidentified females voicing concerns about me wearing makeup while giving GED tests. He said he personally doesn't care how I choose to express myself. But with attendance being as low as it is, he really doesn't want to create any more variables that might threaten the school's budgetary futures by pushing away new or current students.    I knew it was coming, but I let myself think it'd be much further down the line. Yeah, it hurts, and yes, I'm doing what I've taught myself not to ruminate and spiral back into depression. But dang it...I was finally feeling happy about myself. Oh, well....just keep repeating "progress isn't always linear". 
    • Susan R
      I always tear up at the end of the movie, “Far and Away”.  The ending pulls on my heartstrings in a happy way.  But recently my wife and I watched “Boy Meets Girl” and for whatever the reason...it hit me like a ton of bricks.  I had a good cry even though it was probably not the most realistic plot line for a movie.   Susan R🌷   LOL, I noticed I had already mentioned “Far and Away” in a previous post on this same thread back in Oct.  oh well!  It’s hard to keep track of all the posts I make.
    • Donnie_1961
      Well, I've bathed and applied a generous amount of baby powder to prevent chaffing....now it's time to put the rest of me on. Weight gain to me is putting all that silicon back on. Weight loss is taking it off at the end of the day. What HELL we girls put ourselves through just to look nice. Go figure?   Be safe. Be Smart. You've gotta be STRONG to carry ON. (An extra 20 pounds? Thank god I didn't opt for a ridiculously  bigger cup size, or butt size.)
    • Markjvp
      so far no movies has made me cry at least not fully cry but some has made some tears come out
    • Donnie_1961
      Work with what you've got. And if you don't GOT then go out and BUY IT!   Be safe. Be Smart.

      That's one of the government's reasons for not putting an X marker on passports, but mostly "it'll cost too much to implement those changes" which is demonstrably incorrect. But personally, I would assume that's just one of the many considerations the individual should make when planning international travel. Some places are hostile, others (like Saudi Arabia) reportedly refuse entry to anyone with an X marker on their passport. So, that's kinda convenient, I guess? Incidentally, I've done some investigating since reading and posting this, and it seems that if your state's drivers license permits an X marker, then your Real ID will, too.  But I know that there are some people with a severe enough level of dysphoria or emotional triggers that having a gender marker on an ID that's different from how they identify/present will cause distress or out them as trans. So, as it stands, it's probably just a trade-off that the individual will have to make for themselves.
