Belle has some lovely friends outside of the BurlyQ community, too. And happily, they are Burners, as in Burning Man attendees. One lady and I chatted about fire pasties and hopefully I can get her to spin some fire off her nipples on the playa.
Improv burlesque moves ensued as I poured bottles of rum into mint and strawberry leaves topped with red wine. The remaining friends insisted I add carbonation. Coca-Cola was the only choice, something I never drink and they all liked it, or were being nice, but since I don't drink it, I called it a Candy ConCOCKtion and just drank the red wine, until someone mixed that.
I enjoyed getting to know my performing friends better, with no performance adrenaline, nor class room to interfere. This was absolutely a Phenominal Day at Belle Phenomene's Place. Trixie Fou even showed up in a vintage leopard swimsuit and matching slides. Looking forward to the next one. Thanks, Belle.
