Cowboys Only

February 07, 2015
Biloxi, Mississippi

Originally, my agent booked a bachelorette party for me in Biloxi on Friday, February 6, but I had too many other work-related and home-related errands to attend, so I had to turn it down.

"No problem," he said. "I'll get somebody else."

Saturday came. My agent sent me a text message about Biloxi again, asking if I could do it.

"Sure," I replied. "Same group as yesterday?"

"Yep," he said. "Be sure to wear a cowboy costume or they'll turn you away."

No problem, I thought. Apparently, the notion of "being turned away" had a back story. Towards the end of my performance, one of the girls told me that they turned away another male stripper on the previous night.

This information intrigued me, so I asked for details.

"Well, he was kind of a douche," she said. "And he didn't have a cowboy costume. He didn't think it was a big deal either. So we turned him away. Like how hard is it to get a cowboy costume?"

My first costume was the cowboy outfit. It's the easiest to assemble, so that other male stripper had no excuse. He basically threw this show away that I practically gave him when I turned it down the first time, and I just happened to come along and pick up where he left off.

Overall, the show played out great despite my energy levels being low from a difficult week of work at my full-time job. The girls tipped me generously and treated me very well.

Moral of the story: Always wear the requested costume!
