I wrote it a while ago and am just posting it now. Please forgive me . . .
The week of April 12th was Spa Week. Held every April and October, participating spas around the United States offer select spa services for $50.
So, I decided to try a new spa near me and booked two different treatments on two different days.
The first was a facial. (This isn't me in the photo as my boobs no longer point towards the ceiling.)
My esthetician was okay but some things were a bit odd. Namely, while letting the mask sit for a bit, she gave me an arm and neck massage. Rather than take my arm from the front, she sat behind me and pulled my arm to the back. I thought, "Good thing I don't have tennis elbow." When she was done with my right arm, she placed it on my tummy. However, when she was done with my left arm, she left it hanging out behind my head, flapping in the air.
Very weird. I thought, "Ok. Maybe she is not done yet." But she was done and I thought that if I didn't put my arm back on my stomach, she wasn't going to.
She also said I had nice eyebrows but that I needed threading. I have wanted to try this so if anyone has, please let me know.
When I went to pay, the guy at the front desk asked how everything was. I told him that it was okay but not the best facial I have ever had. He seemed taken aback and shocked. Dude, if you think for one minute that this spa has the best facialist in the world, you are sadly mistaken.
LESSON: Do not ask questions if you are not prepared for the answer.
For years, if a waiter or bartender or whomever asked me how things were, I would always say okay even if things were sooooo not okay. These last few years have found me telling the truth.
Case #1 - "How is your food?"
"Ummm, this rice ball tastes like it was made days ago."
Case #2 - "Caramel Frappuccino, double blended?"
"Actually, can you make me another one. I saw you touch your mouth while making it."
Case #3 - "How is your room? Is everything okay?"
"Well, when I arrived, I noticed some pubes on the toilet bowl."
Do not ask questions if you are not prepared for the answer.
On to the second treatment which was an anti-aging body wrap.
I have had wraps before, but it had been a while. Although exfoliating wasn't involved, it was a really nice treatment. A cream was applied to my body. I was wrapped, treated to a great face and neck massage and then a nice, hot shower. Afterwards, body cream was applied and I left smelling like a Jolly Rancher.
Speak the truth. It will set you free.
