Vicar in a Tutu

So I'm having pizza at Pizzeria Due in Chicago, unbelievably good pizza by the way, and my eight-year-old nephew turns to me and says, "Uncle Gancer, you dressed like a girl when you were little." WOW! Where in the hell did that come from? Well, I'll tell you.

I have just one sibling, my older sister. There were days when I was really young, before I had started school and met many friends, and I was attention starved. Just to give you an idea, here's another funny incident before my foray into cross-dressing started. My sister had a friend over, and my dad demanded that they play with me. So he comes back an hour or so later and I'm in my room and my sister and her friend are in her room. My dad is all pissed and says to her, "I thought I said you had to play with him!" She responds, "We are. We're playing house and he's the next-door-neighbor." I guess I was just chilling in my "house," praying to God my neighbors needed to borrow some sugar at some point, or maybe I was playing the part of Larry and would later try to convince them to go to the Regal Beagle. This sad tale shows you a few things.

1. I would do just about anything if it meant my sister was paying attention to me
2. I was easily tricked

So, one day she convinces me to play dress-up with her. The next thing I know I have make-up on, my hair done up, a tutu around my waist, and I'm spinning around like the gayest, little boy ever to dive into Swan Lake.

Well, my sadistic parents must have seen this as a good opportunity to take photos, probably for future black mailing purposes, and those very photos must have been the ones my nephew saw. It's kind of a sad day when your eight-year-old nephew is busting on you . . .

OCG and Cherry- I'll scan and post some photos the next time I'm at my folks' place.

Rev: Sorry, no more kilt pictures. I really can't top Cherry's coin slot shots (See revree's page).

I think it would have been more fitting for you to play the role of Monroe from "Too Close For Comfort". Now THAT was one hell of a neighbor and fits with Dr. Ken's m.o.

Surely this has to be your new profile picture!

Steph: She also once locked me in a cabinet and made me count to 100. I had to start over at 99 when I drew a blank.

Classy: I'll take Jim Jay Bullock for the block!!

Matt: You mean me in a tutu should be my profile picture? That should be EVERYONE's profile picture.

I think you are painting a bad picture of me here. I wasn't all bad. And for the record, you were too little to agree to the dress-up. We totally dressed you up without you knowing any better. I would have done anything for you.

Anon (Sis): I just took out a line that may have painted you in a bad light. You're lucky it wasn't a particularly funny line or I would have left it in!
