(from "The Masseuse")
Kramer: "First she sets the mood perfectly with this new age music played over ocean sounds. Then she lays you out on this table, and she proceeds to rub oil over your entire body. And she rubs long. And deep. Jerry, she rubs with love. Every muscles she touches just... oozes, beneath those silky, soft fingers. You can scarcely contain yourself, buddy."
Oh. My. Goodness.
Well, that pretty much describes my afternoon. I got my massage at Red Jasper Spa today. It was wonderful! So very relaxing. I can't believe it took me 32 years to discover this delightful diversion. The hour seemed more like fifteen minutes. Lying there, face down, with my head in that little mini cushioned toilet-seat-looking thing, I was so relaxed that a couple of times I almost drooled. How attractive is that!
So I get there and we go into the room. She tells me to take my clothes off and get under the sheet and she'll be right back. (I love when girls say that to me.... what?) So I ask her if that means everything. She says yes, as long as I'm comfortable. But you know, I didn't want to take everything off, if that didn't mean everything. Oh, by the way, I'll be talking more about the massage on the show tonight.
She told me my back was extremely tight and that I should come back a few times until I got that loosened up. Umm, OK! Talked me into it. Oh, and I didn't tip her. So I should have tipped, right? What do you think, ten bucks? I'll have to make that up next time.
Anyhow, thank you to the person who challenged me to do something I had never done before. And thanks for all your ideas and to whomever mentioned or made me think about a massage.
Now, I just need some ideas on how to come up with 60 extra bucks a week. I think I'm addicted.
"Girl, I'm faded but I feel alright. Thinkin' 'bout makin' my move tonight. I can't pretend that you're one of my friends when you're holdin' my body tight..."
