My arms are so sore, I can't brush my hair. Or my teeth. Which is ok, because I married a dental student.



I woke up on Saturday, and my first thought was "I wonder what I should wear to my pole dancing class?"

I know what you're thinking. "What kind of crazy dreams were you having?" Or maybe "Um, duh. Lingerie."

I went with Yoga pants. But next time I'm wearing shorts. And heels.

When I told Kurt I wanted to take pole dancing lessons, he wasn't really surprised. But when I told him who's idea it was, he was shocked.

My friend Nicole, from Keepin' the Castle is the brains behind this operation.

Nicole is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She sews and cooks (just thinking about her marble brownies is making me drool), and is an awesome mommy. She teaches piano and loves her sunbeam class, and I'm pretty sure she doesn't use face cards. Also, she might never speak to me again after she reads this.

I think all of us used her as an excuse. "Yes, I said pole dancing. But it's ok, because Nicole is going, too." And suddenly it seemed respectable.

So that morning I was super excited. I even got up at 10:45 on a Saturday to get ready. Which is kind of a record.

The class didn't start until 12:30. Probably because the students all work late? I think a few of them paid in $1 bills.....

...Just kidding. If anyone was a professional, they can't be making much. We all looked awkward and ridiculous. Which was really nice, because there was a lot of laughter and no pressure to try and look seductive.

I mean, we all tried, but we also failed.

It was awesome.

Here is what I learned: Pole dancing is not sexy. It's hard and painful and a lot of fun if you go with friends who will laugh at you when you are trying to do a booty bump.

Also, if you do wear shorts, please put spandex on underneath. No one wants to see your lady parts. (someone needs to say this to our teacher. I call not it.)

Today I have bruises and sore muscles but it was totally worth it. Because I can do a fairy.


(This girl calls it the Cheerleader, but in Pittsburgh it's the Fairy. Also, our teacher was much less annoying than this girl.)

The moral of this story: Pole dancing is painful, but really fun.

Plus, it's always good to have a skill you can fall back on. You know, For those hard times when your husband is limiting your spending money, and Michaels is having a sale...

Daughter #1 just caught me watching the video and said, "I can try doing that if you would get me a post." To which I replied, that's okay, just stick to your ballerina twirls. :o)

So many many many thoughts went thru my mind. What to comment on???? :P So good of you to work on a skill that you can put to good use for those crafting money needs. Maybe I should learn pole dancing too......

Have a good time, silly person.
It actually looks like fun, I must admit. I didn't play the sound for the little video.

I would LOVE to go to a pole dancing class. In college I went to a strip tease class every week and loved it...i didn't strip in the class so don't worry. I think ur blog is so hilarious. When ru 2 love birds going to come visit?

Sunny said...

The last line you wrote is hilarious. Sounds like a fun class!

Chantel and Michael Magistro said...

Maybe I should see if Gold's Gym has a class like that... LoL, it would be fun. I'm not sure who I would take though. Too bad you can't go with me :-)

Definitely a good skill to fall back on. And, I'm sure you can find places that pay a lot :-P

My husband would laugh so hard if I did this!!! you go girl!

Erin A said...

LOL! I wish I didn't live in such a small town and things like this were available. Except if you are the person who brings it up (among your friend group), then everyone thinks you want to be a stripper and you have a freaky sex life. Right?! Or am I wrong? B/c maybe I'll be the Nicole here...
