The day ends in worship
Today was a typical work day for us here in Provincetown. First, Bernie went to the post office in search of a box her mom had sent her with winter clothes. After biking through cold weather Bernie found out when she got there that it was Columbus Day and the post office was closed. Next she headed to the thrift store to get a long sleeve shirt because the weather is pretty cold here. When she got there she found out they are closed on Mondays. Finally she went to the gas station to get milk which was actually open and she was able to accomplish one of her errands for the day.
When she got back to Bella, she dumped the melted ice and got more ice for our food. Then she started her shift at the Vixen. Bernie helped set up for the shows and then cocktailed for three shows: Jennie McNulty, Judy Gold, and The Atomic Bombshells. Tips have been pretty good and Bernie is getting along really well with everyone.
After work, Bernie hung out upstairs in the wine bar with some new friends. They listened to music and talked. Unfortunately for Bernie the bartender made her a drink she had never had before. Halfway through it she could not feel her hands or feet and the room started spinning. This was only her second drink of the night but it must have been powerful. This led to a night on the bathroom floor for Bernie, worshiping the porcelain god.
