Tiger Lily

Meet Tiger Lily…

I told my parents I was a waitress. I had limited contact with my family because I had some emotional crap I was dealing with when moving out. One day while I was onstage naked for my last song, my dad walked in with a bunch of men he was entertaining from work. He usually didn’t frequent strip bars but he was entertaining clients from out of town that day. Our eyes locked and he quickly turned and walked out. My body started to shake and I couldn’t stand up. I had to get off the stage right away because I was starting to have a panic attack. I did the throat slash motion to the DJ and yelled at him to get me off stage. Then I ran upstairs, caught my breath and grabbed my smokes.

When I got outside, I found my dad waiting for me. He basically said, “I don’t have a daughter anymore and I prefer your mother didn’t know.” He left and I cried. I was a mess and felt so ashamed and so angry – mostly because he didn’t ask me why I did it. It completely broke my heart. To this day, we have never talked about it.
