Massage Therapy #14/52

Good news – I went on another job interview, and they were interested! A very small company, but I was willing to take the risk.

Bad news…they contacted my current boss for a reference without having offered me the position and then ended up hiring someone else.  But wait…how did this come about?

Scene 1:  My boss comes to me early this week and says, “So tell me about this new job!”  I squirm and equivocate.

Scene 2: I receive a forwarded email from my boss that was sent from the prospective employer.  In it, he notes that they have decided to hire another candidate.  &!!#$@!? Un-be-lievable.

Needless to say, I ended the week in a fairly stressed-out frame of mind.   To celebrate my birthday (yes – an eventful week) I had booked my first massage.  Good timing.

It was, in a word, delicious.  I’ve been knotted up for most of my life!  Although it was sometimes a little uncomfortable, it really worked the kinks out.  Bliss!  There will be more of these…

Having oozed down the street to a local coffee house, I sit here relaxed and full of biscotti and Darjeeling.   In true Scarlett O’Hara fashion, I’ll leave damage control until “tomorrow.”
