Last week I was massaging a lady who was receiving her very first hot stone massage.

I had just started gliding the rocks over her skin when I asked for feedback:

Me: Is this okay, not too hot?

Her: Oh, no, it's great! Is that some kind of heated oil?

Me: *blink blink* Um,'s actually the hot stones. (thinking: You know, the hot stones I use in a HOT STONE MASSAGE, the massage YOU scheduled for yourself?! Sheesh, Doofus!)

Let it be known that I always explain the entire process very thoroughly before the massage, especially to massage virgins.

I'm sorry I wasn't paying attention. What did you say?

Ya know whut? I'm really getting an ed-u-ma-kay-shun here in the art and science of massage, Christina. I had NO idea there was such a thing as a "hot stone massage." What other revelations await me, I wonder?

Tally, I'm sure you do JUST FINE! ;)

Buck, hot stone massage it the shiznit, believe me! So relaxing and just mmmmmmmmm.

Stick around, you never know what I'll come up with next!
