Drag Queens Think I’m Funny: My Night At LIPPS NYC

20111025-164924.jpgYou know you’re funny when you can make a drag queen laugh. And that I did at the Get Your Drag On event at LIPPS NYC. The tall and majestic ladies surrounded me. Two at the bar. One performing on stage. Another swaying her hips as she strutted down the stairs in heels. And their hair! Their long, big manes would be the envy of any Jersey girl.

All the while, I drank a gingerale and Stoli Vanilla while my date and giveaway winner, Larissa from The Ella Project, slurped on a frozen cosmopolitan. Whenever we needed a refill, I returned to the bar and chatted up these two lovely ladies.

I thanked her and smiled, secretly proud that my humor could reach the hearts of drag queens. Because, if they think I’m funny, I can conquer the world with laughter via my lighthearted story telling. I can be the creative, professional funny gal I always thought I’d be…with or without drag.
