a little embarrassed

so i was walking into the bathroom at the corner bakery today while another person was walking out. a person that looked like a man. so much in fact, that i did a double take and tried to get a glimpse of the bathroom door to make sure that i was actually in the ladies room.

the person caught me looking at them with a confused look and said

“it’s ok, i just have a haircut.”

i’m sure if i had had time to scrutinize them a little more closely, i would have realized that she was a woman. but i wasn’t able to in the split second i had. i felt a little embarrassed for the woman. the quickness in replying to my look of confusion leads me to believe that this isn’t the first time it’s happened to her.
