Levi is also preoccupied with other things. He broke his back seven years ago when he was a high school senior, which put a stop to his participation on the gay rodeo circuit. When he recalls his memories roping steer and riding horses, his love for the sport is obvious. He meets with a member of the International Gay Rodeo Association, who wisely suggests Levi not risk his health. The guy suggests “goat dressing,” which involves wrestling a goat into submission and jamming the poor creature into a pair of underwear.
Levi considers the promotion might be good for his Inchwear line of underwear and swimsuits. He meets with a prospective investor who asks that Levi move from Dallas to Ft. Lauderdale, where Inchwear is based. The investor also flirts with Levi and it’s interesting to observe that Levi doesn’t quite know how to respond when there is another alpha male in the room.
He sets up an appointment with a straight-talking (and handsome) doctor and submits to X-rays, which show that he is developing a bone spur, among other complications. As there is no way to guarantee that Levi won’t be thrown from a horse or suffer another traumatic injury, it seems obvious his days as a competitive rodeo cowboy are over.
Next week: Taylor makes another move for Levi! Chase cries! James probably gets drunk again! Git ‘er done!
