Certainly you are familiar with the 1983 Donna Summer song, “She Works Hard for the Money,” and if you’re not, turn in your gay card immediately. The reason I bring up this particular ditty wasn’t to shame you. But seriously, if you are drawing a blank, douse your gay card with petrol, as the British say, and set it alight right this very second! I’ll wait.
