This week I’m getting an HIV test. For real! Not because I’m unsure about my status, it’s just a quick and easy way to make $20.
I already got my gag down... right after the finger prick I’m going to go into 9 seconds of hysterics:
“Oh my God.... what if it’s negative? What will I do for money? No more writing for Poz! No more AIDS lecture circuit!!! They’ll probably retro-actively take away my book deal.... WHAT HAVE I DONE?!”
If I thought I had the acting chops to really pull it off, I’d have Gwenn come along and videotape it for YouTube.
But wouldn’t that be something if I tested negative? Twenty years after my last HIV test?
Either way, I’m using the $20 to buy in for poker this week. Wish me luck on both gambles.
Positively Yours, For Now...
PPS: if you’re local, I’m playing a Synthetic Division show this Friday @ Rocks, going on at 10 PM. Then playing in Charlottesville for a costume party at the Outback Lodge on Saturday, October 27.
