"It's Good to Be the King"

The last few days have been incredibly busy. I still have to pack and tidy up my place for my house sitter (Thank you, Paul!), but before I fly back below the Donna-Dixon Line, I wanted to share a little blast from the past.

Picture it: Powell, Tennessee, the mid-1970's. The curtain is about to rise on the local elementary school's nativity play. The three wise men pose backstage (a.k.a. "just outside of the gym") for the Kodak paparazzi.

You know which one is me, right? The Future Homosexual wearing a babushka that he calls a "snood"? Yep, that's me.

Me as a wise man. This was probably one of my first performances on stage.

And as you can see from my dung-brown cape with the orange skid marks, and the cream-colored hand towel covering my head playing the role of "turban"...

I've come a long way, baby.

Merry Christmas, everyone! Happy Holidays!

I'd have thought you were the glittery one on the right. Who is that kid? Did he grow up to be gay? I'll bet a nickel he did.

I absolutely love the sandals on the boy in the middle. You don't happen to remember where he got them, do you? Was is Saks?
