Summer Guide'04 

The Drag Issue

If summer's a drag, then I'm dragging my ass out of here," said the drag queen before she took a drag on her fag. "I'm hitting the drag strip, baby. Then I'm dragging the line. Before it's all over, they'll be dragging the pond.

"But what if summer isn't a drag? Me and my main hag could drag the main drag. I could catch a drag race and I could go in drag. I could drag some books to the porch and spray the bugs with Black Flag. Maybe take a day trip in my dragster and drag home a bag of new glad rags.

"If you want a bitchin' summer, honey, don't be a drag."

-- Suzanne Van Atten
