|The Two Sallys edit at the Kapisanan Philippine Centre for Arts and Culture|
Sally began with an ending. I was in the middle of mourning a breakup and as a typical artist and conduit to all that is painful and bizarre, I decided to make online dating a sport. I was going to randomly choose numerous different people to date on Friday and Saturday nights just to occupy my time and to see what kind of weirdos I could accumulate.
I hit a goldmine. It was like the opening credits of the Beverley Hillbillies, only instead of some stereotypical old lady dancing around Texas Tea, I was a queer coloured chick looking for the exit sign while sitting opposite some head case.
I would share my unbelievable stories with friends who would listen to me, slack-jawed wondering how on earth could the internet be such a tool for destruction. Almost every friend suggested I write about it because my experiences were so unbelievably embarrassing that I had to make it public.
