I'm edgy and I know it....I thought


I went to a Burlesque show last night with my sister. Man, I thought I was edgy getting a leather jacket and a  motorcycle, but those women/men are FEARLESS! They sing, and dance in 6 inch heels in precious little more than their b-day suits. Now I know what you're thinking, "How trashy and deviant from social norms." Okay, you might not be thinking that, but that's how I used to think. "It's just a bunch of folks who want to strip in a slightly classier environment." Wrong. After watching the show, I realized it's about acknowledging your sexuality and its power. There's such vulnerability on a stage, and to throw cation and opinion to the wind takes some major fortitude! 

I have certainly changed my opinion and look forward to the next variety show. Oh and one major thing I learned? I'm a lot further from the edge than I thought, keep pushing the envelope!

  1. I love those shows - they are usually very well done. Isn't it just when you think you're edgy that you go somewhere and find out you're not as 'out there' as you thought. Lol
