Dashiel Waitflaker: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Opera
Dash and Bambi embark on another adventure, this time running from drup cops and drug dealers in Mexico. With Bambi's biological clock ticking out of control, they stumble into a convent, then escape by stealing a bus, complete with two nuns. Their final refuge is a rusted out trawler and Bambi's dreams of the peaceful life in Hawaii. More
Settled in Mexico, their lottery winnings spent, Bambi and Dash are slinging beer at the Pink Pagoda Burrito Bar and Beer Haus to the usual crowd of banditos and drug dealers. When Bambi's biological clock gets the best of her, she puts the moves on a new gringo and takes him upstairs for some chaka chaka. After many shots of tequila, she wakes up to find her almost-lover, an undercover drug cop, dead in the bed, and a gun-toting dealer is there to make sure Bambi dies as well. Dash saves the day, the dealer is shot and the two take off on another adventure, starting with a short ride in a Thing, detouring through a convent, lying about Dash's upcoming opera performance, rubbing elbows in a downtown Puerto Vallarta gay disco, and crashing a funeral, all while Bambi is convinced she is now with child. When they find a bag full of money under the dock, they are sure they have hit pay dirt, but need a way to escape the city, the opes, the nuns and the drug dealers who are all looking for revenge. A rusted trawler awaits them, so with Adolf, Jeb, and Bambi's newest pet Pepe the pink lizard, they sneak on board and take off to see, bound for the sweet life in Hawaii.
