I woke up this morning, humming Juice Newton's classic "Angel of the Morning." Why? Probably because I attended a dragalicous performance of it yesterday afternoon!
To support Roommate A's employer, a local non-profit that provides meals to people living with HIV/AIDS, the homebound/critically ill, and seniors, Mahogany Sparkle drove Roommates A&J and me to a local pub where The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence were hosting a benefit. Like all good benefits, there was a bar, a raffle (skin care products! porn! a fake tree!) and there were performers.
One performance consisted of a drag queen who was a dead ringer for Lauri from The Real Housewives of Orange County. She performed in a gigantic white dress - kind of like a wedding dress, but clearly not one sold at Target. She danced and twirled around to "Angel of the Morning" and "Heaven Is a Place on Earth" by Belinda Carlisle. A drag queen after my own heart.
Below is the video for "Angel of the Morning" which features unironic wearing of trucker hats and a scary scene involving a large hand at 1:56.
