After my lovely swim, I went on to the massage place which was where some of the fail came in. My personality is the antithesis of massage place personalities. I know this and try to take with me some forgiving zen but, apparently, I didn't bring enough. The masseuse I drew today - Tina - was an interesting and oh so annoying combo of 50% defense and 50% condensention. And listening was NOT her strong suit. About 15 minutes in, I nearly bailed all together. She was killing me and when I suggested she pull back a bit, her response was that she was just getting started and wasn't really trying yet. So I said ok, then end. And then, turned out, she decided a 'much less effective' massage would be within her capabilities.
"Would you like to add on something for Tina?" "Er, ah, that will be a gigantic NFW." I did get the introductory price of $50 for an hour's massage which, after I threatened to leave, turned out to be not horrible. I feel better muscle wise and if I feel the same way tomorrow, then maybe I might go back again as long as I can get someone other than Tina to 'do me'.
The place is convenient. They are open 7 days a week with walk in options. They do have a number of different masseuses (masseusi?) So. maybe. one day.
And, yep, the Mariners went down in flames today. They were in the bottom of the 8th when I got out of the massage place.
On the way up side, it's not horribly hot. I have not had the air conditioner on today yet.
I think today might be an excellent day to reorganize my closet of folded clothes and maybe the hanging ones, too. There is not too much that needs to leave - Goodwill or trash, but a ton that needs to spend some quality time in purgatory and then probably Goodwill.
