My birthday is next Monday (Nov. 3rd). I'm turning... *gasp* ... old.
To celebrate, I'm inviting three of my best friends -- who all happen to be bloggers -- to dinner at a fancy restaurant. One of my friends (Meghan) lives in Philly, so she's coming early, spending the day with me and sleeping overnight. The other friends live in Brooklyn (Michi) and Queens (Megan) which, for those of you unfamiliar with New York, are outer boroughs that are technically part of New York City but outside of Manhattan. They are about an hour's drive from me.
Last year I had a big birthday party attended by acquaintances and found it oddly unsatisfying. None of those people know about my transgender nature and I felt isolated. I felt like I couldn't confide in them and that erected a Berlin Wall between us. This year, I want to spend time with close friends who understand and accept me for who I am. That's important.
Do you know Meghan, Michi or Megan? If not, check out their super-cool blogs.
