July 23, 2011. When you work as part of a small family business, you’re always looking for a solid side hustle. A few years back, while Sippin’ and Strollin’ downtown, I stumbled on what I was certain would be a real money-making side gig for me. Pole Dancing. I had already enjoyed a few libations, so I figured, what the heck.
I stretched a little, accessorized my apparatus, and unleashed some far distant inner self. After a couple of simple routines, I pulled like seven muscles I didn’t even know I had and immediately retired from professional pole dancing. While the glory of this side hustle ended sooner than I might have expected, it was a moment that I, and probably anyone in the immediate vicinity, will likely never forget. 🙂
