The application says, “Briefly explain why you want this surgery.”  I write “Since childhood, I’ve been a pear in an apple’s body.”

It’s been a nightmare, growing up with the wrong coloration, the wrong texture, the wrong shape.  I’ve been living a lie.  You can’t possibly know what it’s like being round and red when in your mind you’re green and bulbous with a point.

Now, I’m transitioning.  The doctor has a picture of how I’ll look:  Small, round, and white?  Wait.  What kind of pear is that?

Oops, the doctor says.  I thought you wanted to be a pearl.
