My body was PERFECT when I was in school.
I haven't worked as a MT for about 2 years now, and I haven't really had a REAL massage in about 3 years.
So. What I want more than anything, some time soon.... IS A MASSAGE.
Oh hell, I want a Spa Day, at a NICE SPA.
However, I do not want to pay the current rates for such things.
When I worked, and it wasn't at the RITZ-iest of places, we ran specials and deals.... that MADE people want to come in.
I went looking today......not a single place has winter packages or discounts.....
NOT A ONE.
So..... For what I want.......Which isn't a lot.........At least in the world of SPA'S....
- 1 hour Swedish Massage
- Basic Manicure
- Basic Pedicure
I looked into it...
I was thinking.......about $100.
Why? because I have about $130 to play with.....Just for me.
(100 for the services 10 bucks each for the workers tip)
I know what the split is for a Spa Employee, and it does suck......and the tips are never grand........
I just want to relax.
Just a little.
A little Pamper.
There's one place in my area, that looks fairly new......
I think I could get the Massage and the Mani for a little under $100.
But, then, my conscience dives in to interject.
"Do you really NEED that?"
"Couldn't you just soak in the bath?"
"Use your heating pad?"
"Give yourself a damn manicure?"
"Couldn't you use that money for important things?"
"Doesn't Emry need something?"
Go Fuck Yourself Conscience.
I WANT A LITTLE TIME FOR ME.
But, for right now.... just a dream.
Just a want.
But, wouldn't it be nice?
So, I guess it's going to be me....homemade Bath Salts.....and a single candle....... In my OWN bathroom....with my own SPA MUSIC......
