My New Box

I’ve done it. It feels so… So… L-E-G-I-T-I-M-A-T-E. I got a post office box. A big one, too. Now you can send me stuff! Want me to see the cool bow ties you make, the all-in-one-bottle-opener-ball cap you designed, your wife’s prized petunias? You name it. Use the post office box.

I want to hear from you! Want to send a good old fashioned letter? (That’s on paper, with a pen, an envelope, and postage – gasp!). Use the post office box. Have something funny you want me to see? You know the drill.

For my part, I promise to read it, look at it, see it. I think I will even showcase rad things that people send. Won’t that be fun? That is, unless you send panties. Though I am a fan of panties in general, I rather enjoy my wife’s. And, at any rate, I don’t think she would appreciate them. Right.

So here we go:


PO BOX 27870





There. It’s all settled. I’ve a post office box and I’d like you to fill it up with fun letters and whatnot. =:o) Box jokes are too obvious, but feel free to fill in the blanks.

It’s Butch to send ButchOnTap mail. Be Butch. Or if you are Femme, it’s Femme to send ButchOnTap mail. Be Femme.


About Tristan Higgins, aka Butch Jaxon

I am a butch. This blog is about what I think. If you do not know what butch means, you are probably on the wrong blog. In the interests of inclusion, though, I can tell you that “butch” means a lesbian that is big, strong, tough, more macho, less girly. Of course, there are no hard and fast rules – which is an ongoing theme in my blog (and in the comments), but those are the basics. A butch will most likely not wear makeup. A butch is often referred to as “sir” by someone who is not paying attention. What else? I am, after all, not just a butch. I am happily married to the most amazing woman ever, and the mother of two fantastic kids. I am also a lover of, in no particular order, beer, bowties, breasts, movies, hiking, bookstores, travel, dogs, geocaching, polar bears, the gym, music, gadgets, and more. By day, I am an intrepid corporate entertainment lawyer. Although I try hard not to be labeled as such – sporting a bleached Mohawk, for example. Think more entertainment and less corporate. By night, bring it all on! In my blog, I talk about things from a butch perspective, but this is not just for butches. We all love our femmes. Please do not let me offend femmes, mine in particular! If you like what you read here, I hope you will comment and let me know what you think. If you do not like what you read, well, what the hell do I care? Start your own blog. Be Butch.
