My back was aching for most of my shift, particularly that area just above my gluteus maximus. It’s no wonder I couldn’t concentrate (much) on the calls I was receiving, as it just added to the stiff shoulders I normally experience. It wasn’t a nice feeling, really.
So I decided that it was time for a bit of selfishness on my part. As soon as I got off work, and after a short detour to my bank to deposit the pay I got on Saturday (what little there is…), I headed straight to the beauty spa I normally frequented and treated myself to the first full-body massage that I’d had in a while. God knows I needed it.
After that, well, let’s just say that I tuned out for the rest of the afternoon as soon as I got home.
