I gave my name to the receptionist and sat down in the waiting room at the doctor’s office. I put my hands on my knees and spread my legs wide, forgotting for a moment what my body looked like now.
You see, when I went to sleep last night, I was your typical, ordinary guy; but today I woke up as a woman. I immediately called the doctor to schedule an appointment to see what was wrong with me, to figure out what happened.
None of my old clothes fit, but luckily my sister had dropped off a few things the other day, as I was collecting items for a local charity. I felt so weird putting on her underwear, jeans that felt much too tight, and a sweater with long sleeves that covered my hands if I didn’t roll them up.
I had to adjust the seat in my car for my now smaller body, and as I drove to the doctor I kept having to push hair out of my face. Now that I was waiting, I was wondering how I was even going to explain that I somehow spontaneously changed genders.
