At the Car Wash (PG-13)

Now here's a phrase I never expected to hear from a guy that I see every week at auctions: "Bikini car washes, that's where the money's at. If I had a bigger place I would still be doing them."

"I'm glad your not." I quickly replied. "I'm not sure that I would like to see you in a bikini."

He slowly rolled his eyes. "They were girls, I ran the car wash. Although I did used to do them myself too. I used to be an exotic dancer."

As surprised as I was to hear about this mans former life of running bikini car washes I was way more surprised to find out that he used to be a professional exotic dancer. The images flashed through my head, a 6'4, 40 something year old black man in a speedo. I quickly blinked in an attempt remove that image from my head. Shiver.

"Yea, I did that until my kids were in high school. There's good money in pretty much anything that has the word exotic in it."

I wasn't sure how to respond so I just nodded. I can honestly say that that was the last conversation I had expected to have.
