I think that you are far better at applying eye-liner than I am.I wasn't sure how my mother-in-law would react, and while I was trying to work out what to say next, my mother-in-law responded with
Some of the best makeup artists are men.To which I responded
That depends on how much makeup they're wearing at the time.The conversation just stopped right there. I can't imagine how my mother-in-law could fit that in with what she knows about me if she really doesn't know that I'm a cross-dresser.
The following weekend, my wife and son went away with my in-laws for the Australia Day long weekend. They took an extra day at each end of the weekend for travelling, so they left on Friday and returned on Tuesday.
That made the timing of their return interesting, as Tuesday night is the night that I go out for dinner with the girls. In some ways, I hoped that they would arrive just before I left as Alice while in other ways I still wanted to avoid having my in-laws see me that way.
Well, the timing worked out okay for avoidance. I left before they arrived, having put away all my makeup gear from the bathroom and tidied almost everything in our bedroom. Not that my in-laws tend to look in our bedroom. They've seen but never commented about the row of 9 wigs on stands along one wall, and now they seem to avoid even going to our bedroom doorway. :)
After I got home, my wife told me about a little conversation that went on in the car on the way home about picking up takeaway dinner on the way. When asked if they would need to get enough food for me as well, my wife said
No, he usually goes out for dinner on Tuesday nightsonto which my son added
as Alice.LOL. No response. Nothing.
I'm left trying to decide whether to send friend invites to a few of my wife's relatives on facebook. :)
