Music to my ears

Whilst we still anxiously await the return of Trevor (or Tracey) to our little market town of Sprodlington, it was important that today I took my mind off things.

I have therefore kept myself busy and whilst browsing through the Sprodlington Post (our own local paper) I noticed some fantastic music results from Audrey Bishop’s School of Music.

Cross dressing for beginners

The other day I received a telephone call from Colin.

“I’ve got Trevor round here” he said.”He’s acting rather strange and is a little upset.”

Colin, as you know is the local school history teacher, and Trevor Shoreditch is what I would describe as a woodwork teacher, although they have more fancy names nowadays.

“What’s up with Trevor then?” I asked.

There’s always been a little edge to Trevor ever since he was reprimanded for stamping on a boys foot when the lad had made a wooden ashtray.

“He’s decided that he wants to change direction in life.” Colin paused before adding. “He says we have to call him Tracey.”

Now I already know one too many Traceys, but I was desperate to meet this new one and after grabbing my camera I set off for Colin’s and there was TrevorTracey.

Trevor Tracey was crying; I thought perhaps with a sense of relief that this was all out in the open, although I did think he she had made a very bold step change in one go.

“Let’s take your picture then.” I said

“I’m really not so sure.” replied Trevor.”I’m rather confused and upset.”

“Rubbish!” I tried to firm his view “If you’re going to look like that you better get ready to be stared at and have you photo taken. All the kids will get you on their mobile phones.”

And so I took my picture anyway.
