Saturday afternoons of late, I have been helping some friends write a musical. Currently, I am Chief Lyricist. We laugh a lot and have a lot of “Oooh, let’s do that!” ideas.
We work at The Majestic, a restaurant downtown that is mostly empty on Saturday afternoons, so they don’t mind we are there. Today there were out-of-costume drag queens there, practicing for the evening’s entertainment. All that music and energy just made me laugh out loud. Here’s us, debating over who in our story has a pregnancy scare, and there’s the queens, up on stage, wriggling around to “It’s Raining Men”.
It was awesome!
