It’s great when your career is in a field that you are passionate about. There are many people who work jobs every day that hate them, so I am grateful that I do what I do. Of course, it is always good to have other skills to fall back on in case of an emergency or dramatic event in one’s life. On a recent trip to the Dominican Republic I was recognized for a talent in which I didn’t know I had. Out of a very large group, I placed first amongst my peers and I must say it was as eye-opening experience.
First, it was a shock to many because this skill is dominated by women. I know there are a few exceptions but for the most part, when you walk into a room full of strippers the chances are they are all going to be women.
After all, women are more delicate, detail-oriented and simply have more patience than men. These are all traits that are very important in this profession. I was very shocked that I had what it takes to be judged in such high regards as these very talented ladies. It was a very intense contest but when the judging was completed I was king of the stripper world.
The contest was quite simple. We were all given a designated workspace and then ordered to strip. It wasn’t a race so there were no bonus points for finishing first. There is quite a bit of artfulness to it. You want to be deliberate with your actions but not so deliberate that you just rip it off. We were also judged on the beauty of the finished product. Let’s be honest, it doesn’t matter how great you are at stripping, if the finished product is mangled and not close to being symmetrical.
In the end, I guess the judges were just more impressed with my technique and overall final presentation. It was also a rare day for the fellas, as another guy finished in second place, and the ladies had to settle for third best. I know that some folks will say that I shouldn’t be proud of this skill. I must say I did have reservations about telling my wife about this. Would being married to an international award-winning stripper be something she would brag about? Only time will tell on the affect of this new skill.
So, next time you are smoking a cigar think of me and the countless number of strippers out there. The bunchers and rollers may get all the credit for the making of the cigar, but is the stripper who carefully removes that central vein from the leaf and sorts the leaves by size, quality, and color.
