The spa has been proactive and has already hired my replacement, a young lady I've known for a while, by sight anyway, since she worked as a dealer on the casino floor. Alecia is a recent graduate of my alma mater, NSMT, and is a welcome addition to the spa.
We were pretty much done with work by early afternoon, and after futzing around a bit, I asked if she'd like to do a trade.
Oh. My. God.
She's good. She's so very, very good. I've been in pain for the past few days, my back and neck giving me hella problems...Alecia pounded the shit out of me, and I feel better than I have in months. MONTHS. I had some really bad trigger points, and she killed 'em, and not with kindness, with extreme prejudice, rather.
Of course, I'll probably be bruised tomorrow, but it was so worth it.
Thank you, Alecia! I'll get you next Saturday!
