Personal Reflection Upon Being a Womanless Beauty
By Kip Tabb –
On Saturday March fifth, nine extraordinary women took the stage to raise funds for the Outer Banks Relay for Life.
OK – maybe they weren’t actually women. Maybe they were men dressed as women, and maybe it was a little bit scary – for everyone, but the end result was we raised over $31,000 and everyone had a great time. Held under the big top in the parking lot of Kitty Hawk Kites in Nags Head, it really was a night to remember.
I went into this a little nervous, a little bit out of my comfort zone, but I have emerged a new woman. I had an amazing time. Lat year I covered it for the North Beach Sun, but it’s way more fun being on stage. Plus I burned up enough calories to keep my girlish figure intact for at least another week.
Thank you, Maiah (my daughter) for helping choreograph my dance so I didn’t make a total fool of myself. Thank you Megan the Miracle worker at Style DiVita for creating a woman. A special thanks to Bobby Perry and the staff at Miss Lizzie’s for understanding that to be in touch with my feminine side, I needed feminine style that fit. But beyond all else, Dee Buchanan – thank you so much of not really giving me the option to say no.
I can think of very few things I have done in my life that have made me feel so much a part of something bigger than myself and something so important to who we are as a community.
