In the summer, if you are the only one stuck working while you’re friends are on vacation or at the beach, it can be hard to be stuck with a job. But sometimes you have to make sacrifices for your future and sometimes that means working over the summer. You’re not a kid anymore and working all summer long is part of adult life. But if it is your first summer where you’ve had to work during the hottest part of the year, Rhode Island Dolls in Woonsocket, RI can make the work week a little more tolerable.
That’s what happened to me. All my rich college friends are taking the summer off before they have to start their day jobs but I don’t have the kind of money they do so when the job offer came, I had to grab it. But then I realized that I’d be all alone while they were off having fun and chasing girls in the sun. I was kind of sulking and my pops told me it was time to be a man and learn how they get through the week.
I didn’t have a clue what he was talking about until Saturday afternoon. He told me to get in the car and he drove me to Rhode Island Dolls.
Now, I knew my dad goes to the strip club with his buddies once in a while but I didn’t really think about it. I actually kind of thought it was the kind of thing that only old guys do.
Turns out I was wrong. There were guys of all ages there when we went in. I was even kind of shocked to see some women. At first I thought they were dancers that just weren’t working but my dad said that it wasn’t unusual to find women hanging out at RI Dolls and that they likely weren’t dancers.
I was also surprised to find out that Rhode Island Dolls is not at all like the strip joints that I’ve seen in the movies. In movies a gentlemen’s club always seems a little seedy with dodgy characters all over the place. Not RI Dolls. It’s just a club with a lot of men (many of them looking like my dad) and there just happens to be naked chicks on the stage. Nothing seedy or dodgy at all.
Actually, when we got there, the stage was empty. Another surprise. I thought there was always a naked girl on the stage. Or that there would be naked girls walking around. There weren’t.
My pops said he was going to get me the best burger I’d ever had in my life. I thought that meant we were leaving and I didn’t want to go before I saw at least one dancer. We didn’t leave though. I had no idea that there was going to be food, too. He ordered us a couple beers and he ordered the food. And I have to say, that was one awesome burger.
By the time we had finished eating, it was time to see some dancers. I wondered what the dancers would be like. I was quite happy to find that the first dancer was a very pretty girl my age. She was gorgeous and not scary at all (don’t even ask me what I was expecting because I’m way to embarrassed to tell you!). She caught my eye several time while she was dancing and smiled at me.
When her routine was done she came out into the club and walked around. When she caught my eye, she came over and talked to us for a few minutes. She was really nice and my dad bought be a private dance.
So, that was my first time at a strip joint. And you know what? I loved it. I have actually been back every weekend since then. Mostly I go by myself or with a friend but my dad has joined me there once or twice, too. It’s kind of cool that we can do that together.
And I’ll be honest, I think if it weren’t for Rhode Island Dolls, the summer would totally suck. The staff are awesome and the girls are beautiful and every time I go it is like a little mini-vacation. It is the only thing that keeps me sane during the week. It’s the only thing that keeps me from thinking of all my college friends at the beach.
Working through the summer isn’t so bad when I get to hang out at RI Dolls every weekend.
