Stream Of Consciousness Sunday

I splurged on one of those mall massages yesterday because my body feels like I got worked over by two or three guys and their tap shoes.

There are knots, bruises and bumps all over and I ache.

The massage wasn’t long enough and didn’t do enough to take the edge off of things, but the funny thing is I didn’t realize how bad it was until they started working on me.

It is not surprising because I have been too busy to notice much of anything and when you run like I have been running it is easy to be unaware of all that is going on in your world.

The massage was 15 minutes long which apparently was enough time for the back, arms and legs to tell the brain that things aren’t quite right. Of course the stomach has been shouting at me all week long but I ignored him because that bastard has been whining at me for twenty some years or so.

Call it the joy of a dysfunctional digestive system.

So today I decided I am going to build in more time to exercise. If it works as I hope it will help alleviate the stress and work out the kinks that have been hanging out far too long.

    I always thought those massages at the mall were kind of sketchy. I guess not.

      It depends what you are looking for. The one I got was completely aboveboard. The guy did a nice job and if I would have had enough spare cash to pay for an hour I am sure it would have worked wonders.

    I can so relate. If I were to get a massage, it would take hours to get rid of the aches, pains, and kinks. But, oooh, even 15 minutes sounds great.
