A pre-pandemic associate sent me work. I was so grateful to be asked to grace the stage for a Wakanda themed event. My customized African outfit was the go to attire for this one. Upon arrival, I met the band members. The drummer was a girl. She was giving soft masculine energy and was very cute. I really enjoyed the evening especially since I was in her presence. It isn’t everyday that you see a girl playing the drums. She was giving us the beat while serving us heat.
Afterwards, I was telling a friend about the pleasant experience. She said that it would make sense that I enjoyed hanging out with a pretty tomboy since I used to keep the company of a few masculine presenting women in a very heavy sense. A strong pause came over me. The realization that I had just been seen with my previous history was embracing me. My response was that I was processing being seen. This is what I good chat with a good friend can do for you.
