‘Absolutely anything goes’

Handwritten page of a diary dated June 1, 2003

in a new city. I’d been hearing about this parade for months, and everyone said ‘Dress as wild as you possibly can.’  ‘ It’s like Paris in the early 1900s.’ ‘ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING GOES.’

So I did it, I made a costume with big feathers, silver boots, fishnets and not much else.

Turns out ‘anything goes’ was an exaggeration. A GIANT exaggeration. I’ve never been stared at like that. Embarrassment might’ve been the worst part of the day, but oh wait, no, it was being arrested for indecent exposure!!!!!!!!!
