International Anniversary

This week, Mrs. 45er and I are celebrating 8 years of wedded bliss.  About 2 weeks ago, I floated the idea of a "doubles massage" to which she more than immediately agreed.  If I hadn't made up my mind, I did at the end of that conversation.

We did a French breakfast, then went for our massage.  When we got to the room, thankfully I had thought ahead.  I'll just say here's another great situation for pocket carry.

It was a Swedish massage and I will say it was rather fantastic.  I have this freaky ability to relax just about anywhere.  I've actually fallen asleep in a dentist's chair.  No surprise, I took a snooze during the massage.  In total disclosure, my relaxation technique was visualizing a draw and front sight focus during rapid fire.  I'm a freak.

We got the "hot rock" therapy thrown in for free.  Yes, it was nice, but when they use the adjective "hot", it's not just a sales gimmick.  Those suckers were pulled from the fires of Mordor and stuck directly on my back.  It was something like:  mmmm, warm and wait, holy-heck-son-of-a-that's-hot.  It took some getting used to.

After that, an Italian lunch.  Then shopping followed by Thai for dinner.  I've been wanting to sleep since the massage this morning.  Now I will get my wish.

Happy Anniversary, Mrs. 45er!

    1. Thanks, Tango. Oh, it's not as bad as I make it seem. I don't quite think they were glowing so it couldn't be that bad.

    1. Thanks, Flier. Oh yeah, I have some Pop Rocks in the cupboard for the kids. I think I mostly got them for nostalgia.

    1. Brigid, I whine but it was really good. Mrs. 45er and I were joking and laughing about it afterward. Yeah, you're right, it's just like... oh, wait. Nevermind. :)
