This picture too me back in time. I love moments like this, both if I’m performing them or with someone who is. I once went to shop for makeup with the wonderful drag queen Lily White, when she was not in drag he looked a lot like Benjamin Franklin, complete with round glasses, and tended to dress in overalls. Mind you this was 35 years ago, things were different then and it was Texas. Lily walked up to the counter, hands in pockets and said “I would like to see that blush, please” the obtuse lady behind the counter just could not or would not get it. Finally, fed up after about five minutes of playing verbal joystick with the woman, Lily took his hand out of his pocket and with his three inch bright read drag nails, tapped the glass counter and gently said “that one sweetie.” Lily became my god that day.
