Small Town Gay Bar

‘Baubles’ Come along for a visit. You might like it!

Day 2. I tracked Dancer to a dingy gay-bar named ‘Baubles’, on the wrong side of Santaville, offering lap dances for cheap shots of gingerbread whisky. However, no amount of alcohol could deaden the reality as to why he hid behind the stage-name of ‘Tinsel’ like a filthy Walrus. Nevertheless, I could pick those red-painted hooves out of a line-up, no problem.

I pushed my way through an over excited herd of Caribou, dressed in rubber gimp masks, chains and corsets. Deafened by their baritone voices shouting, ‘Tinsel’ over and over again. I wasn’t the only one eager to see him.

The lights dimmed. The crowd quietened. In the pale blue spotlight, stood Dancer, wearing tight, purple-sequined Daisy Dukes and a pink rubber halter-top. The past year hadn’t been kind to him. He deserved it, of course.

He staggered, twirled and gyrated, while the tune of ‘I’m Horny’ played in the background. The crowd wolf-whistled and then stormed the stage after he did an eye-watering, splits finale. I ran behind them, pulling Dancer towards the side-curtain. He smiled and offered me a private dance. I refused the offer, of course.

I did manage to ask the all-important question, though… ‘Did you cause Santa’s death?’ I shouted, before they grappled him from my hands, and held him aloft like an over-stuffed prize turkey.

As they raced out the door, he screamed back… ‘I couldn’t help it, okay. All I ever wanted to do was dance!’

    I love ‘like a filthy walrus’! Great line! I’m still giggling now at the crazy weirdness and not forgetting what Dancer is wearing even though the previous year hadn’t been kind to him. Excellent! 😉

  2. Blogdramedy says:

    …and make romance? Is that in the cards for Dancer? Or does he blame it all on Prancer? Oh, the drama, drama, drama!

  3. Random says:

    Yikes! I don’t think I’ll ever be able to un-see “Dancer, wearing tight, purple-sequined Daisy Dukes and a pink rubber halter-top.”

      I know. Me thinks, maybe, I’ve sailed a bit too close to the wind with this one. Trouble is, it only gets worse!
      Oh well, in for penny in for pound, so they say. But thanks for your comment. 🙂

  4. Amy says:

    Oh man. This is so wrong, but so right!
    And now I kinda want some gingerbread whiskey.

    • sarahneeve says:

      I know, I feel a little dirty now! Its not like me at all to write such trash. But I thought, why not.
      As to the other, I’d much prefer gingerbread vodka, can’t stand whisky.
      Thanks for commenting. 😀

    I’m thinking if he’s that far out-of-the-closet that he’s probably not the one. Just a hunch!
