So let me tell you about the time from the conception of Miss Vivian to the actual birth. To sum it up in one word HELL!!!!
Okay that is an exaggeration, but it was very difficult for me. You see even though Vivian had not been born yet she was purchasing items left and right.
I would not call myself cheap but I worry about finances like there is no tomorrow. So every time Vivian wanted to purchase an item, I would say “Why? You haven’t even started performing yet.” A little piece of advice here do not try to get in between a budding drag queen and item she feels she needs. It won’t end pretty for you…:-).
Vivian hadn’t even been seen in public yet and she had more shoes than some girls have in their entire warbdrobe. Slight exaggeration here but not by much. I should have known this because as a man Vivian has a lot of shoes. Silly me for expecting Vivian to be any different.
Vivian is anal rententive about everything…from what she is going to wear to what her hair and make up looks like. Me on the other hand I really do not care what I look like when I go out. I know shocking, a gay man who doesn’t primp or care. I’m not the average gay man, but more on that later. So everything has to be PERFECT!
From spring of 2009 to October 31, 2009 Vivian was purchasing items weekly if not every other day. She was purchasing make up, make up brushes, wig and clothes. And Vivian is not cheap either. Vivian’s train of thought was she needed to build up her collection of these items so when she started performing she had what she needed. The jury is still out on whether this was true or not.
She just couldn’t have any make up brushes she had to have the limited MAC brushes that were like $45 for 3. They were something like that because to be honest I sometimes tune Vivian out. What can I say I may be gay but I’m still a man..LOL.
The first wig could be just anywig it had to be a custom wight that cost $150. I almost fell over when Vivian told me she wanted to purchase it, but we did. What can I say Vivian may fustrate me but I love her. I try to be as supportive as I can. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I do not. I’m sure to Vivian the not succeeding feels like most of the time.
The pregancy was very difficult for me because it felt like it was all about Vivian. You see it is Vivian’s world and we are just living in it.
