SCHOOLBOY TO SHOWGIRL
A boy is sent to Las Vegas to live with his Aunt. He gets a job backstage sweeping floors until one girl doesn't show up. Only he knows the showgirl routines!
"So I was being trained. Arm in arm, Connie and I walked down the strip, in and out of casinos. I was scared and had a little trouble with my new high heels. I was told to hold my legs straight and walk from the hips, putting the heel down to the ground with the toe of the shoe, not to “clomp,” but to swing.
I found it was quite difficult. The higher heels forced me to take a feminine stride and walk with a movement of my hips as I had so often admired girls doing.
“Now,”Connie whispered, “Let's work with the purse! Don't carry it like a bag of sand. It is a lovely and delicate part of your new wardrobe. Would you rather sweep floors or dance on stage?"
