HOW SUGAR STOLE CHRISTMAS
So, Sugar was supposed to help me out during a fundraiser for Make-A-Wish. I'm no do gooder, but I gotta soft spot for that organization. So, she agrees to help me stand in the freezing cold and help schoolkids collect money for the sick kids. But, on the BIG DAY, no Sugar. So, because I was only ONE adult they put me in cahrge of the smallest group, which just happened to be kids from an UBER-RELIGIOUS school here in town, who immeditely started in with the "Where do you go to church..." blah blah. So, I muttered something and ignored this jr. Spanish inquisition, until the end of the night, when they asked "Miss Mary Helen to lead them in a prayer." And I really floundered at that one, stuttering and saying part of the GOD IS GREAT GOD IS GOOD thing out there in the cold with all these horrified kids. Exposed as a Jesus fraud. BUT, even without Sugar, who was off getting drunk with Guitar Wolf or frolicking around on Broadway or some Glam business, we did alright. But they were so disappointed not to meet the famous dancer/actress/activist SUGARPUSH as had been promised. SO, she owes not just the sick kids, but ME too!
