Genie in a Bottle

“I feel like I’ve been locked up tight
For a century of lonely nights
Waiting for someone to release me.”

Christina Aguilera — Genie in a Bottle (1999)

I like to think about my transition in this way…when I can relax my mind and be playful. The bottle was rubbed just right and the Genie in me has been released and she refuses to return to the confines of the limited horizons the bottle represents in that way.

Ths analogy of the Genie in the bottle has visited my life in reality but has expanded my horizons. Every morning I take my transition chemicals from a bottle along with a “good morning ladies” (I know, weird0) before I consume them. If I have been granted three wishes I would wish for:

  1. Be of value and service to others
  2. Live as a 100% passable woman
  3. Make people smile

#2 will depend on the Grace of my Genie……
