- I am not the typical at anything that I have been a part of. Some of you are (Laughs) that’s just a fact of life. Not all of us will be original people. Look to the left of you, and now to the right- see between the two people you just looked at, there might be a stand out between the three of you. What makes you special? Different? Maybe you’re like me- it was what I did that made me distinctive, my story was in my job. A way to take care of myself and my needs without having my hand out to my parents all the time asking or begging them for a loan or a favor, a hand out. I just couldn’t do it. I finished college and (Beat) a series of events happened that changed the course of my life and what I thought I would be doing as I stand here at thirsty-five years old. It’s like they say when life gives you lemons you make a lemon drop shot and call it a damn day. (Laughs) I tried to make lemonade. Sometimes that shit was the sweetest lemonade I had ever tasted…and sometimes it was just shit and tart and I had to spit it out, but no matter what the circumstance I tried to make something with those damn lemons regardless of the situation. I always tried. Just because I was a stripper does not mean I give “Happy endings” as they say. (Laughs) There is no amount of tip that a man can put down my bra or in my thong that will make me put my lips where they do not belong. I have rules; I am a lady you know. (Laughs) Yes, lady- “Women of the night” have rules too. Where did that term come from anyway? Probably some stupid ass man who had the luxury of experiencing a woman of the night and was left completely speechless. (Laughs) That is the fight of every one of us who have the balls to sit in this room.
