( 8:53 AM ) teahouse
One of my birthday presents from the Husband was an hour long massage at a nice Asian spa.
And no, they did not offer me a happy ending! It was a legitimate spa!
As the diminutive but strangely strong Korean woman rubbed down my entire body, she struck up the following conversation with me.
Masseuse: "Oh, you have good body. Not too fat, not too skinny. Good muscles, too (rubbing my butt) You are very young, yes?"
THB: "Oh, no, I'm not so young. Today is my birthday; my Husband gave me this massage as a present."
Masseuse: "Oh, you have husband? You not look old enough for husband. Like teenager. You marry young? How old you are today?"
THB: "I'm 33 today. And I'm a newlywed. We married 5 months ago."
Masseuse: (stops rubbing in disbelief) "Oh, you 33! I thought maybe you in college." (long pause).
". . . Oh, yes, if you 33 then it is lucky thing you have husband. Not so young." #
