How to have an adventure. Part 2.
1. You almost never get fan girlie.
Being a performer you realise
that all performers are just people.
You get all fan girlie anyway and run off
after their set instead of going up to talk to them
like you want to.
2. Find your phone is dead again and that you have an hour
‘til the next band you’re dying to see is going to be on
Head back to the gaming café for forty minutes
To charge your phone and strike up a conversation
with a cute little nerd playing with magic
3. Feel the power of what it is to be a woman
and smile to yourself at the fact
that despite being a lesbian you’re not offended
that the poor kid can’t work out
whether or not to look at your boobs
or your face, and so looks at both.
4. Pretend like you actually know what the fuck
he is talking about.
Smile and nod and ask questions about strategy.
Tell him it’s all cool when he gets so excited
about what he’s explaining that he has to stop
and berate himself for it.
You think it’s really great to see someone
so passionate about something
even if you have no idea what their talking about.
5. Bail out when another Vanguard aficionado
comes along and not even your boobs will keep anyone interested.
Tell the guy you just met that it was nice to meet him
and that you might see him around some time,
he’s got you all interested in cards now.
You’re only half-lying.
6. Head back to the concert, it’s just down the road.
Go to the merch desk, and turn around to find
the leads singer of your fave band standing behind you.
Say “Hey, you’re from Harlequin, right?
I travelled four hour just to see you”.
Feel really cool when he looks surprised
and says thank you.
