the story of an invisible girl
A Therapist of Her Own
I saw the PT again today, and she was pleased to hear that I didn't skate last night. "I was a good girl," I told her. She agreed.

I showed her a sore spot on my shoulder, and she said it was really my neck. (I had no idea my neck-bones extended so far!) She worked on it for me, even though it wasn't actually shoulder-related. Then she was working on my shoulder, and she was surprised that it was also still very tight. Basically, the whole neck/shoulder area was a bit of a mess.

"So what does your boyfriend do?" she asked me.

I had told her awhile back that I used to frequently ask my boyfriend to crack my back for me. I considered explaining that really he wasn't actually my boyfriend anymore, but we still liked each other a lot and hung out and stuff. I decided that was much too complicated and not worth the trouble to explain, so I just said, "He does computer security."

"Computers computers," she said, shaking her head. "You need a therapist of your own."

"I know!" I exclaimed. "That's what I've always said!!" I've often thought that what I really need is somebody to put me back together at the end of each day. It was kind of nice to have her validate that opinion.

Maybe next time I see her, I can just sneak her home with me.

Oh, and why wasn't Virginia Woolfe a twin?
She wanted to have a womb of her own.

Remind me to crack your back next time I see you.

I just kinda wish I had someone to give me a massage every once in a while.

::gasps!:: can I steal your nerd joke for my user info? (I'll give you credit! :D) (unless you want nothing to do with the sordid affair that is my list of nerd jokes)

My sister has a t-shirt that says "I don't need therapy, I need a Mac". ;) But a significant other would probably be even better.

Take care of yourself! And feel better!

Yes, you can definitely use my joke. It's perfect for you, after all. I'm glad you like it!! I hadn't seen your nerd jokes until now...they're fun. (:

Thanks, I'm working on it!

::grins:: nerd jokes amuse me. I mean, even aside from the fact that they're jokes and should be amusing people. Reading yours reminded me that Katie and I had found a couple more. . . and now I've lost them. But I'm going to add yours--thank you! :D (I need more literature-based nerd jokes)

Save yourself a live-in massage therapist...get a massaging chair from Brookstone. :)

Good suggestion, I hadn't thought of that!

I love that store, don't you? Five minutes in one of those massaging chairs does a body good.
