( 9:09 AM ) teahouse
The Husband is a very artistic guy, and he does community theater, opera and the like.
Last weekend I went to see him in a local performance of show that one of his friends wrote.
He played the role of the mother of the main character, and hence was required to dress in drag. He wore a head scarf, a dress and even wore lipstick.
As I walked into the theater and saw a large poster of him dressed up like this, I couldn't help but feel really strange.
On the one hand, he looked silly dressed as a woman, and it was good for a laugh.
But on the other hand, I found myself strangely and unexpectedly attracted to it.
Yes, in a weird way, I was both drawn in and simultaneously repulsed.
Looking at the photo, the subject had features that were familiar and somewhat attractive to me (which makes sense, since he's my husband).
But in another way, he clearly looked like a woman. And I'm pretty sure I'm straight. Or am I?
Then again, don't get me started on the slight resemblance to my mother-in-law. Ahhhhh!!
Is this normal? Or am I right to be disturbed by an aspect buried somewhere in the depths of my psyche that I have just discovered? #
