A man searching for a balanced life has many stories.
Steve Stewart, a good friend of mine, has given me another quotable quote:
“Ken is taking pole classes. It’s basically what strippers would do if strippers were ninjas.”
Yes, sort of—not really.
Regardless, I’ve purchased a pole. My mind runs rampant on the jokes that you are probably already forming(“that’s what she said”). But yes, it’s true. My studio is moving to a bigger and badder place. They are selling their old poles at discount. And since I found around $215 on an old paypal account and the owner wanted $250 from the original $400-ish that the pole would’ve cost new—I said yes.
It’s securely pressure-mounted and it spins, and I have the space for it. That’s about all that matters, right? So, beware the spinning monkey in the living room(me). Because after I get back from a China trip, I’m totally tearing it up.
Oh yeah, I’m going to China for 3 weeks. Cool, right?
