Today is the day we go live with one of our projects. Weeks and weeks of meetings, long hours, conference calls etc... all boils down to today.
After a solid week of headaches and terrible lower back pain, I decided to book myself a 90 minute massage last night.
The masseuse was able to locate the source of all my lower back ache - it's in my butt. Apparently, I have a pain in the ass. Anyways, she probably spent about 30 minutes massaging various parts of my butt. And did it ever hurt.
Here's how the conversation went:
Masseuse: "Wow, it's really tight here..."
Masseuse: "Yup, really tight. You could say you have a tight ...ass"
Me: Har har.
Masseues: "Sorry, massage humor. I guess you hold all your stress and tension in your bum." *presses down hard*
Great. My ass is a conduit for stress and tension. And here's the thing about getting your butt massaged. It's hard to relax - completely. For obvious reasons.
For the record, it did help a lot with the lower back pain.
