Slow on the uptake in gender realignment…..
Dave works for a company in Leeds and is a big guy. We talk to him now and again, he sorts stuff out for us, he’s a ‘no nonsense’ type of man – early 40’s, quiet - and hairy, in a hairy-hirsute sort of way. His beard and chest hair both look like they’ve all had the baby bio treatment.
Dave has a big, deep, booming gruff voice – that sounds like he gargles with gravel every single morning.
Dave is a man’s man alright …….. sort of - ish
Yesterday morning, Dave’s answerphone was a bit different though. Something not quite right there, I thought. Same gruff voice, same apology for not being at his desk at the moment but please leave a message….
But, I don’t know..... something’s just not right……. I replace the receiver and dial again.
"Hi, Davina here, sorry I’m not at my desk at the moment…."
Davina has a big, deep, booming gruff voice – that sounds like she gargles with gravel every single morning……
Davina is still probably as hirsute as ever – but I bet Immac sales in Leeds have gone through the roof.
Davina is a woman’s man alright …….. definitely. .
Dave is dead,
long live Davina……
It’s all a bit of a shock.
