My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Saturday and some Susan time and yes I made it to the Escape again.

Happy 4th of July

Well it is Saturday July 3rd and I did get some Susan time. I had some things to take care of early in the day so it wasn’t till about 2 when I started getting ready. Now my plan for the day was pretty simple, go to Starbucks and write my blog from Wednesday nights dinner at Outback Steak house and get something to eat. No grocery shopping today as I did it the other day as I didn’t want to have to go to the store today as they will ne busy with people shopping for the 4th of July. I was all ready by 3:30 and really liked the way my eyes turned out as I used browns including a coppery/goldish brown which looked really good, and I was on my way. I got to Starbucks and it was beautiful out low 80’s so I thought about sitting outside but it was pretty windy. I went in and ordered my drink, my kiwi starfruit refresher but they were out of kiwi so the lady recommended a Strawberry Acai berry refresher so I tried that one.

I sat down at a table inside and got my computer out to work on my blog from our Wednesday night dinner. I got my drink and it was also really good although I think I like the kiwi starfruit better. Now I checked my e-mails and Lauri posted she was planning on going to the Escape tonight and it got me thinking. I haven’t been there I probably 1 ½ years so I posted back I might stop by and asked what time she would be there. She hopes to be there by 8:30 so I still need something for dinner as I don’t want to eat that late. I finished my blog and just played on my computer for a while, figured it was better then sitting at home watching TV. I stayed here till 6:45 before leaving.

Now my plan was to stop at IHOP at cascade station for dinner and then get to the Escape between 8 and 8:30. Well as I drove, I started thinking, I know that is dangerous, but why not just go and have dinner at the Escape, so I called them to make sure they still did dinner and they do. I got to the Escape at 7:15 and got lucky as someone was leaving as I pulled I so I was able to park in the lot. I got out of my car and grabbed my computer and started in, as I walked in a young man greeted me and said it was good to see me again which was nice and I paused for a moment as I tried to figure out who he was. Well it was James the KJ, he has lost some weight and looked good. they had no one sitting outside but there was probably 20 people inside mostly sitting at the bar. It did seem a little strange as I have not been here for 16 months and I was pretty much going here every Saturday night. I did recognize a few of the people at the bar but none of the bar staff. I stood in line to place my order, when it was my turn the young man behind the counter asked to see my ID, yes, I was carded in a bar, it has been a long time and I thanked him as it made me feel good. I was looking forward to pancakes but they don’t do breakfast in the evenings so I was going to get a burger but the lady sitting at the counter recommended the grilled chicken sandwich so I tried that.

I sat down with my drink and got my computer out as I waited for my dinner. I started on todays bog but my food came in about 10 minutes so I didn’t get much done. The grilled chicken sandwich was really good and yes this may surprise you but this is the first time I have had a chicken sandwich. Now things have changed here they now start karaoke at 7:30 instead of 9 so it started to get loud. I had seen Michelle come in but she went to play video poker, I think she didn’t see me as she was probably expecting me to get here later. Well after I finished my food, I took it to the bus station and went over to where she was and said hi so she would know I was here and then went back to my table. It was only about 5 minutes and Michelle joined me evidently the video poker machines were not friendly tonight.

We talked for a little while and got caught up, I have not seen or talked with her in 1 ½ years so it was really nice. It was almost 8 and Tina showed up, I met her once before the shutdowns and she did join some of our zoom meetings early on but it has been a while for her also. Now several of the people singing karaoke I knew as they use to come here before so it was kind of like it use to be. It was about 8:15 when Lauri showed up and a little later Laura W. also showed up so there were 3 of us tonight which was a good turnout considering this was just a couple e-mails late this afternoon about going.

We tried to talk mostly between songs but it was hard as it was loud. Now by 9 they had a pretty good crowd here and the tables were not 6 feet apart but people did try to space themselves out the best they could. It was fun to listen to the music again and some of the songs were good well all were good but songs I knew and liked. Michelle was the first to leave around 10 and Tina not to long after but it was great to see them both and talk with them. Soon it was down to just Lauri and me when this young man came over named John, I think I met him before well he said it was good to see me again and sat down at our table and started talking to me. He seemed nice and it didn’t take long to figure out he was interested in me which did make me feel uncomfortable as I am not at all attracted to men. I did get lots of compliments on how I looked, you know pretty face, pretty eye and yes, I do like the compliments but still strange coming from a man. He talked to me for probably 30 to 40 minutes before asking for my phone number which caught me off guard and I just said not know, I probably should have been straight forward and told him I was not interested but I was trying to be polite which may come back on me next time I am here. Well he left and it was just down to Lauri and me again for a bit, Mama K who has worked in the kitchen ever since have been coming here got off work about 11 and she came out and joined Lauri and me at our table, she is really awesome so the 3 of us talked for a while and before I knew it I looked at phone and it was after 11:30, I had only planned to be here till 9:30 or 10. The night went by so fast and it was fun to just be out again.

I went up and paid my bill and said my goodbyes to Lauri and Mom K and then I was on my way. As I was walking out to my car 2 ladies outside who had been at the next table to us said bye to me and wished me a good night, one of them looked familiar so it is possible they remembered me from before but either way it felt good and I wished them a good night also. It was a little after midnight when I got home but it was a fun night out.

Now I am looking forward to Sunday and spending the afternoon and evening as Susan. stay safe and be happy with who you are. Thanks for reading my blog and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life.

Happy 4th of July
