I Just Couldn't

I was going to the bar at 10 pm.
I was a student then and I wanted to take a break.

I saw a girl of the utmost beauty there.
She had all the feminine attributes: Long hair, fair skin, lips, etc.
I normally never know how to approach a girl in public.
I’m shy.

We made eye contact, so I asked her,
“Want a drink?”
“Okay,” she said.
We started talking then we danced all night.
“Where do you live?” she asked
“Let’s go,” I said.
We were inside the room when I discovered the shocking truth.
He/she was transgender.
I was in shock.
My brain stopped functioning.
I felt like I was in an American comedy.

There are a lot of things I don’t have a problem with.
I’m an open-minded liberal.
But I never imagined this would happen to me or anyone I know.
With a blank look on my face, I told her/him, “No, I can’t.”
And I ran out of the room.

I’m still amazed at this situation although I’m now a married man.
I sometimes remember it while having intercourse and my brain freezes.
I don’t know how I just told this story.
I’ve never told it to anyone before.
