In my School Days in India, English was not my preferred language of communication. Though I studied in an English Medium school, still all my friends use to speak Hindi. Thus to force learn the language English practice was made to learn two new words every fucking Day.

In childhood it was easy, build up the vocabulary two words per day, and then day after day. But now when I am in my 30’s and I have to read plenty of Research Papers, Books or Boring Instruction Manuals, the fun of Learning a Language seems depleting.

This took a turn when I took a Security Job as part-time with the company name “Best Security” Only working Friday and Saturday Nights at Clubs and having AU $300 seems an OK deal to go with.

Now coming back to Vocabulary and finding the joy of learning more words becomes a fun task when you are talking with Random Strangers on odd topics on Casual Jobs. The fun word I learned this week was “DRAG QUEEN.” This happened when working on an LGBT famous Club in Fortitude Valey of Brisbane, Australia called THE BEATS.

When my senior asked me on Radio Communication “if the DRAG QUEEN has arrived at your location?”

I was initially confused. What does the DRAG QUEEN mean? Is that the name given to a specific position or actual name of Person?

I asked back. How would I know?

To that my Senior Replied, “YOU Will Know !!! when DRAG QUEEN reaches there.”

In moments there was a Dramatic entry of a human being with extraordinary beauty. Blond Hairs, height more than 6 feet, Spotlight focused on, Mic in hand and confidence equivalent to 1000 men put together.

Rest 15 mins my job was to keep the crowd off stage so that DRAG QUEEN would complete her performance. It was Spectacular.

In the same week in an ‘In-Home Counseling’ Session, I got suggested by my sister Dr. Kritika to watch the series How I met Your Mother episode “THE ARCHITECT OF DESTRUCTION” in resemblance to my over pessimistic nature.

The word “DRAGON QUEEN” came again randomly to use in the above-mentioned episode at 06 mins and 24 seconds. Later on, I had to Google what the DRAG QUEEN really mean and I was astonished of so little I know about the LGBT community, the use of common words and much more.

So in this post, I won’t be giving you the meaning of DRAG Queen, that you can google yourself. The intention of this post is, that I acknowledged, even after my half-life of this planet is almost done, I still have a lot to learn. Though not two words per day as my school days, but at least one-word per week in an Interesting Environment. 🙂

That’s all for today,

See you next post or next life, whichever is earlier 🙂

Cheers
