With the Yuletide season around me, I am reminded of what it was like to be a child. I have always been fascinated with the twinkling lights, the tinsel….well, basically anything shiny. I have friends who have told me that I have the nature of a magpie. I am attracted to anything that sparkles, shines, or reflects light. This is all true.
I have a very beautiful friend who has turned me on to all things Gypsy as of late (no, not the stripper, but the people group). I am in heaven! I have fallen in love with the Gypsy wagons. The insides of some of them sparkle and shine like dozens of diamonds. We have also discussed bedazzling in length. I love it!!
I am very much a male, so I honestly would never be comfortable being a drag queen, but my family has told me for years that if I were a female…I would look very much like Dolly Parton. This is true also. Only I don’t think I could heft around those things that she carries in the front. I would have to take up bodybuilding just for the back muscles.
I think for the sparkle factor alone is why most gay men are attracted to the Christmas season…..this is a time when you can let you inner drag queen loose and make the house look like Dolly threw up Christmas. Granted sometimes the Martha Stewart in me takes over and I do tone it down a bit, but we do have a lot of sparkle around here.
Next year, I think I may see if I can bedazzle the Christmas tree, the tree skirt…..the possibilities are endless!!!!
