Girl who dances in a cage

Why yes, I was in the same class as Terri Hatcher

This totally cracked me up. So I'm at this ritzy downtown salon this morning where I occasionally get my hair cut for free by being a "hair model". The gal cutting my hair tries to talk me into going above the shoulder length. I'm trying to stick with below the shoulder. I told her that as an occasional go-go dancer, I'd like to have the long hair to whip around. That wasn't the entire truth though. What I really wanted to say is that a lot of the pole spins and floor work involve whipping your head around and the cascade of long hair is part of what makes some of the moves so feminine and sensual. But she's an older lady and probably wouldn't understand, right? I mean I figured she might associate pole dancing with stripping and I'd rather not have to explain myself.

She DID talk me into above the shoulder length. So half way through the cut she starts telling me, "I was watching Oprah one day..."

And I say, "Uh-huh."

She says, "And they had Terri Hatcher on..."

And I'm thinking....oh my god she's not talking about the episode I think she's going to talk about.

She is. She says, "And Terri went to this school where they teach pole dancing."

"Funny you should mention that," I tell her. I then proceed to whip out my business card. Needless to say, she wants to take a class. Unfortunately she's a Katrina refugee just working in Seattle until she can go back to Louisiana. But if she's still here, she wants to take a class. Thank you Oprah and Terri Hatcher for once again promoting my business!!

Here's the clincher, I was in that class with Terri Hatcher. You folks who were reading my journal back at the end of 2003 probably remember my post about that (she's mentioned in the very last paragraph).
