Spa day! Were ever two words in the English language more readily guaranteed to make the blood pressure drop, the tension ease, and the lungs expel a big hearty sigh of joy? Never! A spa day is so wonderful; it's nearly as good a day in bed snuggling your boo. It's the expensive version of cuddling a squishy Labrador puppy; one that has been fully house-trained and loves you very much indeed. It's like chocolate ice cream that has no calories but actually has the taste and texture of the real thing. It's nirvana.
Still, the spa is full of options, and everyone uses it differently. Some people go there to look beautiful, to remove gunk from their pores and dead skin from their epidermis and gnarly parts from various other extremities. Others go to try to remove a knot just under their scapula that they have spent the last forty years creating but only have forty minutes to destroy. Others go because it's the one place you don't have your phone on you, and nobody expects you to be available. They are in direct opposition to those who go to socialize with friends who also like the spa. Generally, how you do it will be radically affected by your age. So let's see how you spa it up, and then we'll guess your age!
