The right answers

Greek Alphabet asks how I react when a man tells me,

You are not the woman I thought you were.
You are still a girl.

Being a classic multiple-choice-answerer (haven’t you noticed I’m a blogger in the plural?), here’s what I would say to:

The I-lurrrve-him-sooo-much guy:

The I’m-gonna-bust-his-balls guy:

The I’m-sitting-on-my-hands-to-keep-from-grabbing-him guy:

The infuriating-yet-he-stays friend:

The who-gives-a-damn guy:

In retrospect, no man has ever said such a thing to me. Could it be that they never thought I was a woman in the first place anyway? Or perhaps the fact that I believe (and hence I behave like..) the opposite sex never really grows up? Or….(my third option)….I’ve finally learnt the male habit of going deaf and blind to that which doesn’t please me. Glory be!
