(at the bar, in a cabaret, during the day)
s/He: You’re here for the act?
S/he: I am.
s/He: What’s your stage name?
S/he: Mx. Peahen.
s/He: I don’t get it, you look like a peacock.
S/he: I’m a hen, sir.
s/He: But your dress…?
S/he: What about my dress?
s/He: You look like a peacock.
S/he: Well, I really am a peahen, with a twist.
s/He: With a twist?
S/he: Yes, as my title would indicate.
s/He: Can’t you just be Miss Peahen then?
S/he: Mx. Peahen will do.
s/He: How am I supposed to pronounce that?
S/he: It’s pronounced Məks.
s/He: I can’t put that on the cabaret flyer…
S/he: This is a burlesque show, is it not?
s/He: Yes, but…
S/he: Well, then I think it’s perfect.
s/He: The audience may get confused.. with the name.
S/he: Let them.
s/He: I really don’t know… look… I don’t want to sound insensitive…
S/he: You don’t want to sound insensitive?? Would you be speaking to me this way if I were a peacock?
s/He: What do you mean?
S/he: I think you’re a bigot.
s/He: Oh, I’m big alright…
S/he: That’s quite the fatuous word play….
s/He: Yeah… well, look, I love your costume… but you have to come up with a different stage name.
S/he: Sure, make that Miss Peacock.
s/He: You really like to blur the lines…
S/he: There are no lines…. come on, admit it… you’re jealous…
S/he: You wish you could carry yourself like I do…
s/He: I don’t know what you’re talking about…
S/he: I can smell my own kind…
s/He: Shhh, not so loud…
S/he: What are you afraid of? Just be yourself…
s/He: I have a reputation, my staff and the clients of this cabaret only know one side of me…
S/he: Talk about the irony… it’s time to let go of all that… why don’t you borrow my costume, get on stage and make a grand reveal?
s/He: And kill my current persona? Are you crazy?
S/he: I know you’re dying inside. It’s time to show them your innate hen.
s/He: My what?
S/he: Your innate hen. The hen in you.
s/He: (giggles) Ha! I thought you said something else… but what about you? What will you wear?
S/he: Oh, don’t worry about me… I’m quite comfortable with the cock in me. - 1 hour ago
