Driving home this morning from work I noticed that the newly re opened village pub ( The Crown) is having a Halloween " do"
Apparently a drag queen with the rather dubious title of Leslie Lush will soon be taking centre stage; no doubt she will be bobbing for apples with the village farmers and trick and treating with Gaynor the mad organist......drag queens and Halloween?
Is it me but it's not a pairing that automatically go together.....I must also add that
I'm not a big fan of drag queens on their own if the truth be told!
I was once punched in the face by a ugly drag queen called Kitty Litter
It was in the Roxy night club on Bootham in York in the late 1980s and I was trying to climb onto a bar stool after a somewhat lively night out with a group of psychiatric nurses, when I slipped and fell into a rather large middle aged " woman" in a sheath white gown, spilling her drink.
She turned around suddenly , and showed a shop worn face pancaked in make up, badly applied lipstick and a noticeable five o'clock shadow.
She looked dreadfully familiar
" Hello Mum!" I chirped up sweetly.
I never saw the fist coming .
