This Story is about an American Showgirl…

With your host… Professor Laszlo…

 

This story is about an American Showgirl…


A most unusual American Showgirl…


An American Showgirl who many here may well recognize…


Due to the delicate nature of this story, I shall not name names…


I shall endeavor to protect her identity by every means possible…


An American Showgirl who was brought up and raised on the carnival circuit, a child of the Midway, who grew up to be a talented beauty, smart, sexy, and capable of anything…
This is not the part that makes her so unusual…


She could arrow the route, lay out a lot, boss around a gang of roughies, frame a joint, flash the joint, call ‘em in, make an opening, turn a tip, pull a
set of doubles, load pig iron, move a tilt, lay the note, turn the duke, cut in a lead line, steal city juice, square a beef, fix a copper, daub a strike, spit tacks, carry the banner, and follow the arrows…


She was born in a wagon and never lived in anything that wasn’t on wheels…


She could back a semi better than most men could drive it forward…


And she looked like a movie star the whole time she was doing it…


And why not, she was with it from day one, her mom started show biz as a revue dancer and went three times around the ginny with the show fixer and patch…


Neither is this the part that makes her so unusual…


She was in her early twenties when I met her, and if I hadn’t been tangled up with the wrong one, she might have been the right one…


She was far too practical for romance, and she had the worst luck with men…


At twenty four she had already been married and divorced three times…


This is not the part that makes her so unusual either…


Three failed marriages at such an early age is not so unusual in America. Certainly not in the freewheeling devil may care world of the carnival…


The part which makes her so unusual is the fact that despite having been married and divorced to three different men by the age of twenty four, she was still a virgin…


This is the part that makes her so unusual…


This is the part where everyone says that this is not only impossible, but absurd and completely incredible that an attractive young woman can remain a virgin in the world of the carnival midway…


It is completely possible that an attractive young woman can remain a virgin, and only possible in the strange and mysterious world of the carnival midway…


This is how it came to be…


She married young, and she married well, her first husband was a show owner…


He was older, much older, too old…


Freshly widowed, she married a shoulder to cry on, he turned out to be gay...


She divorced him…


An unusual amount of years passed before she married again…


So, to sum up the details of the tragic story of this girl’s heartbreak…


The windup is…


Her first husband couldn’t…


Her second husband wouldn’t…


Her third husband was the carnival concession manager, and all he ever did was sit on the edge of the bed telling her how good it was gonna be next week…
