...a simple, relaxing massage by your husband inevitably turns into a full-fledged anatomy lesson.
Actual conversation 1:
ME: That feels great on my neck....my neck has felt tight lately.
STUDOC: Yeah, this is where your (such and such) artery is. It starts here, and connects here, and here are some of your lymphnodes....
ME: ....wow. This is so relaxing.
Actual conversation 2:
STUDOC: Can you take off your socks so I can feel your feet?
ME: Sure! I'd love a foot massage!
STUDOC: (feeling my feet) Today we learned how to feel a person's pulse in two different places on the foot....(uncomfortable poking and prodding)
ME: Um, that kind of hurts.
STUDOC: Sorry....(with enthusiasm) see look!....I can feel your pulse here......and ........here.......
ME: Hmmm.....that's great. This is the worst foot massage ever.
STUDOC: (laughs) And I can feel your (such and such) ligaments...
ME: (sigh) (smile) :)
