The Daily T LOunge for April 21, 2020

Posted on April 21, 2020

Candy Bar, Detroit, MI

 

It’s Tuesday, darlings! No, really. And today, we ask that you THINK PINK because that’s the kind of mood we’re in and the kind of lounge we’re opening. Here at T Lo Headquarters International, we have decided that there will be no more baking because the daily Wearing of The Jeans has become… shall we say, problematic. We didn’t diet our asses off (literally) ahead of our now-cancelled book tour for nine months only to eat our way out of our wardrobes as we head into the summer months, kittens. Oh, no.

Please be advised that this new non-baking situation is almost certainly temporary and one can expect the restrictions to be eased or lifted at any time, for reasons of being antsy, anxious, down, or just plain bored. We’ll see how long this lasts.

Take a comfy seat and look over today’s specials on our Menu of Distractions. A shirtless male waiter will be over shortly to take your order.

The tours explore the tomb of Meresankh III, the tomb of Menna, the Ben Ezra Synagogue, the Red Monastery and the Mosque-Madrassa of Sultan Barquq.
