The Long And The Short (Hair) Of It

| Right | September 13, 2016

(I’m a cashier and currently helping a mother. Her son appears to be about five years old. I have a pixie haircut, but I also have an obviously feminine face and body.)

Son: *very seriously* “Are you a boy?”

(I almost dissolve into laughter.)

Me: “No, I’m a girl. I just have very, very short hair.”

(He seems to consider this for a moment.)

Son: “Okay.” *nods very seriously*

Mom: *clearly worried I’m embarrassed or offended* “I’m sorry about that.”

Me: “No, no, it’s perfectly fine! He was very serious about the question and I can definitely say no one’s ever asked me that before; it was hilarious!”
