Yes, I'm Man Enough to Wear a Dress


Am I the only one that finds it ironic that, because I’ve worn a dress, society sees me as nearing manhood? I’d be the first one to argue that these are ROBES, but really? Silver and purple? Who would I be fooling? All kidding aside, Tuesday was the official graduation ceremony. I got to be the lucky person who presented the class before the audience, and I got my diploma. I still have a barbecue celebration later this week, but I won’t bore you with a post about it here because I think it’s safe to assume that you readers have heard enough about my completion of my schoolwork and everything that comes with that.

The manuscript is printed and after I write up the cover letter it will be sent to Scott Appleton, most likely today. So after that, armed only with a completed manuscript, my faith, and the prayers and support of you, Yodeling Dwarf readers, I step out into the vast and treacherous darkness that is the world of agents. Perhaps I shouldn't have written this so late at night... On second thought, maybe I’ll embark on that journey in the morning… and get a flashlight… or a sword.

Well, to me it doesnt look like a dress, I say it's more of a robe, like you said.
Your so lucky to be getting your diploma, i'm getting mine next year, when I'm eighteen! Then i'm moving to Alabama, DONT JUDGE ME IN ANY WAY, to complete my novel and start off in a writing career.

Ha! Glad everyone likes the ROBES. I did get to keep it. Any ideas as to what to use a graduation ROBE for after graduation?
