My Old Kentucky Home

This is a story from my childhood when I lived in Kentucky. It includes costuming and role-play and ,believe it or not, Bucky wasn’t involved. I’m thinking I was probably about eight or nine when my brother, Tardist, and I pulled this one off.

Tardist, posted a story about some neighbors. There was Marty, who was probably four years younger than I was. And there was his younger brother, Bobby, who was probably a year and a half younger than Marty.

Since they were younger we figured it would be easy to play a trick on them. I got my hair braided and stuck the braids up under a baseball cap. Then we went down to Marty and Bobby’s and I was introduced as Tardist’s cousin, Tom Ford.

Marty was, perhaps, a bit skeptical. I think Bobby swallowed the thing hook, line, and sinker. I don’t think we did this very many times, but it’s made for some good laughs over the years.

You see, folks, Bucky comes by it naturally. She just takes it to extremes.

hard to believe a cute little flower such as yourself could be mistaken for a penis bearing freak :-).

Okay, first: Cross dresser. Drag king.
Second, you said: "Tardist and I pulled this one off."
Third, you said: "Bobby swallowed the thing hook, line, and sinker."
Fourth, you said: "Bucky comes"

That's all I have to say about that.

"Loop of Weirdness." I know it's in a Disney film, but I just love Elton John.

I suspected this was some sort of sexual escapade, from the costumes and role playing, but Bucky really fleshed it out for me. Do you play Tom for Ichabod? Or maybe Thomasina?
I love Elton John, too; and I have no idea what EJ has to do with Tom Ford.

Do you see how Bucky can take an innocent child's practical joke and turn it into, well, um, into something she'd do????

No reassignment surgery necessary, it doesn't take much to fool kids that are three and five years old.

Kitty, what? Who're benson and that little guy.

Jess, you only missed a kid's joke. Leave it to Bucky. Hey, wasn't that a TV show in the 50s to 60s?

Mr B, thank you, as always, for your savvy insight.

Susie, thanks for just being you. :-)

You people seem to have the impression that I'm slightly less pure than driven snow.

I shall take offense to that right after I pull the egg timer from my ass.

Ding!

Thanks Kitty! I'd take a bow, but I'm afraid my top won't stay on.

Yeah, I think Mr. B wins the SP sleazy slut sweepstakes. And he doesn't even LIKE south park!

Blogger Mr. Bloggerific Himself said...

Woo hoo! I'm a sleazy slut and I don't even have a partner in crime!

I'd just like to say thank you all for your support, in bed. I'd like to wish for world peace, in bed. I'd like to have another piece of that chocolate cake, in bed.

What? Oh, I thought we were reading fortune cookies! *turns red*

Squirl, I was wonderin' when you'd tell that tale. Sorta reminds of the time I dressed in drag and walked through the girls' locker room in high school.
