Has it ever occurred to you to have someone tell you the most awful things for your own good, without that person realizing what it actually does??
Let me explain. Every month, I have an appointment with a massage therapist as my back, shoulders and neck are full of knots. Today was one of those
and it was particurarily more painful than usual. After the treatment, Ann - let's call her Ann - tells me that I should start looking at weekly
appointments instead of monthly. She tells me that I am not getting better but worse. Great...so I say "okay...I'll think about it..."
Seems like that triggered the awful news. Ann then goes on about my back being hard like the table, my muscles in my shoulders and neck being way
passed anything she has ever seen. Cool, I'm unique !! She doesn't think I'm being funny...
She raises the bar. She says I should eventually look at early retirement...say WHAT???
Hey, I'm only 50 and that's way too young to even think of retiring. Likely, it's not the age, it's the mileage...yeah...okay... Shouldn't I feel
like Indiana Jones???
She's not amused and I'm shocked. Here is this guy feeling like he is still in good shape for a fifty year old, Tom Cruise style and she's telling
me I'm more like George Burns and...darn...this guy's been dead for sixteen years for crying out loud !!!
I walked out of her office with a smile. Not a real smile. The most artificial smile I've ever given to anyone !
Now I feel like...well...not a good feeling. Not at all. Old, yeah, thanks to her, I do feel old. And it sucks.
