Man! I Feel Like A Woman!

June 12, 2009 - Jennifer Brookens
Shania Twain definitely summed it up best for me when I got a sneak peek at the upcoming "Miss Tootsie" contest, which will be going on during the Sherburn Holiday Festival (7 p.m. on Saturday, June 20 at the Sherburn Theatre, to be exact!)

Six Sherburn guys have agreed (or were forced to agree) to don the dresses, wigs, make-up and heels for a fundraiser for the Sherburn Community Hall (part of the Sherburn Theatre building). These guys have rehearsed a dance routine for the past few weeks, and now are learning the stage moves for the rest of the pagent. They will have to face the dreaded Q&A (was that the undoing of Miss California?!) along with physical fitness and talent. Luckily for all involved, they skipped the swimsuit competition.

But judging from the biographies, it's clear that these guys are still men. After all, what woman would wear a fragrance called "Dopeez" by Jeff Foxworthy? And it will be interesting to see these hulking men try to walk instead of tromp in heels and evening gowns. Maybe this will enlighten some of the Tootsie guys just what kind of insanity we women put ourselves through to impress men.

Here's hoping that the Miss Tootsie contest will be free from broken heels and nails, wardrobe malfunctions and back-stabbing catfights. Good luck "ladies!"
