Every day we feature the beloved “Strawberry Letter” franchise that is so popular on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” heard nationwide. Send in your letters and Shirley Strawberry will dish out the necessary advice. Today’s topic: EExotic dancer and minister’s wife Good Morning Steve and Morning Crew, I am a 35-year-old, married, plus-sized women. My husband and I work very hard and still find ourselves struggling financially. Today I got an unbelieveable job offer. I was walking from the parking lot to my job and a man in a very nice car beeped his horn at me. Being the classy lady that I am, I kept my head straight and proceeded on my path. He pulled his car into the nearby parking space and got out and started coming towards me. As I waited for the light to change to cross the street he approached. “Now what?” I thought. He said to me that he had seen me before and that he promised himself that if he saw me again that he would stop me. He proceeded to speak but the next words that came out of his mouth shocked the fool out of me. He said that he is the president of an exodic dancing company and he has been looking for some plus-sized models. He proceed to tell me that he liked what he saw, (as he leaned back to take a look), and hoped that I would give him a call to set up an interview. He handed me his card and walked away as I stood there in shock. Did I tell you he had a nice car and was dressed sharply? Anyway as I got to my office I began to ponder the idea. I called my husband to tell him about the offer and we both laughed. My husband said, “I told you that you could make us a lot of money and thats why I got the poll installed in our basement, you could really help the family out!” Steve and Shirley, should I help my family out and look into the job offer of becoming and plus sized exotic dancer? Signed, To dance or not to dance!! P.S. Did I tell you that my husband will be ordained as a minister in a month?
