Lesbros Forever

Its another fun day in the life of a visa customer service agent. Its been a busy few weeks since we last ranted. I got my king on a week ago and Billy King came out of retirement. It was a crazy weekend and I got my first taste of both performing and being the master of ceremonies. It was an amazing experience and I loved every minute of it. I performed Pierre Lalondes version of Caroline and finally got to break Creep out of the box. It was one of the hardest numbers I have ever performed. It shook the center of me and I felt as if I was going to break in half. I don't remember any of it, and was unbelievably shaken when I left the stage. Everything is a blank from the time the music started until I was standing on the platform behind the curtain, faced with Nat. I couldn't move, I didn't even know what to say.
That night has changed things. I haven't worn a real suit to work and I`ve kind of been distancing myself from Billy. I had to write "his" bio for the website and I could barely find the words. Its weird... I cant figure out whether Billy has become so much a part of me that I don't see where he ends or whether I have become someone very different, leaving Billy behind. My suits were just work clothes for so long that now wearing them almost feels like performing. Work is an escape for me, I don't need to perform there.
But that is for another day... I bid you a good night gentle readers. Sleep well, be safe, and don't do anything I wouldn't do.

I leave you with a link to Billy's Bio:
