CONFESSIONS OF A PRAIRIE BITCH THANK-YOU
Thank you for your generous donation to our fundraiser for Lifelong AIDS Alliance. With your help, we raised over $2,300 for people livings with HIV/AIDS. This event would not [have] been such [a] great success without businesses like yours.
I went to high school in a small farming community with an enrollment of just over 300 students many of whom were bused in daily.
At that time of my life I was a virtual isolate except for one person who I met in one of my classes and appeared to know much about our classmates.
When we were talking once he alluded to the fact that Thursday was QUEER DAY on campus and that you could delineate the less than straight people who wore green socks.
For years I always checked fellow students wearing the colorful socks and into later years which I found out was not true. During the high school years fluorescent socks were very popular.
Although I never met a Gay person in school several of the people I suspected went into show business and became very successful in later years.
Out of curiosity I spent much time in the school library perusing everything I could find which was minimal about homosexuality and by the time I graduated I was ready to explore a new venue.
To this day I often check men for green socks and don't go out on Thursdays.
