TIPTOE DOWN MY SPINE

Folder: 
AMERICAN ANECDOTES

 

Chinatown in San Francisco was really cool.  I figured I would check it out as long as I was there.  A lot of architecture seemed very Chinese and quite magnificent.

 

There was a Thai massage parlor and I was feeling a little adventurous.  I decided to go in and check it out.  I didn’t have anything to lose so I figured what the Hell?

 

I wanted to have a petite Asian woman tiptoe down my spine just to see what it’s like.  I always read stories about the restorative benefits of such therapy.  It did feel good and that made me feel weird.  I get walked all over at home, at work and so on.  And then I go on vacation and pay to get walked on.

 

I paid 25 bucks to get massaged and walked on and left feeling better.  They did offer more costly packages.  There was a 50 dollar and a 75 dollar deal.  There was also a 125 dollar deluxe package on the menu.

 

I am curious as to what the deluxe package actually entails.  I do have a pretty good idea and if I was a rich man, I might be tempted.  Happy endings are hard to come by.

 

But it was strange.  It’s the first time in my life that I ever felt really good about being walked on.  I just hope my family and friends and work colleagues don’t find out about this strange new fetish I acquired out west.  I wouldn’t want my stature to be diminished in their eyes.
