Earlier on I pulled into a parking bay to drop someone off. By coincidence it was directly opposite a particular solicitors....and this memory came back.
Years ago I appointed this solicitor to act for me. I had never met him before but had written to him.
He was sat behind his desk when I was shown in. After some general chat about the problem he came around the desk to get the file and.........
I kid you not, he was wearing a skirt, black tights/stockings and high heeled ladies shoes. Shirt, tie and jacket up top.
Afterwards I asked around and sure enough he was known as a cross dresser.
Each to his own but it surprised me.

I actually knew his wife for many years before that happened**. They had 2 children. Thats one of the reasons I was SO surprised......the fact that his background seems perfectly normal.
** not the first date part, just meeting him part^_^

I had a similar experience a few years back when I went into the local VW parts store to pick up some spares. There was a lady behind the counter and I was fiddling with my phone when I heard a hoarse norf London voice ring out which I connected to the lady. Unfortunate how they don't seem able to change the voice.
