Assignment 1: 30 second story

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

I live in Mullica Hill, NJ, a small town outside of Philadelphia. On the weekends I spend a lot of time in the city enjoying the night life. One time when i was 17 I was walking down broad street with my best friend at the time, Greg.

All of the sudden I looked across the street and said, “Oh, my God, Greg, that’s Whitney Houston!”

My friend Greg was far more skeptical than I was and denied that it was her. Insisting that it was her, I offered to go over and ask.

So, I headed off across the street and asked “Hey, are you Whitney Houston?”

Turns out it wasn’t Whitney Houston but I was close. It was actually a man. A man that does drag shows at Barb & Barbara’s Thursday nights on South street. One of the characters he does is Whitney Houston and I made his day by mistaking him for her.
