Is That A Sunburn?

So I got a massage today and the first question was, "Thai massage or oil massage?"

In the spirit of experimentation I decided on a Thai massage, not really knowing what that was. As it turns out Thai massage is code for menthol. Why so much menthol in Thailand? I will never know. Menthol gum, menthol candy, and menthol rubbed into just about every crack and crevice of my ever expanding body. And not the wimpy kind of American Vick's VapoRub Menthol, but the bad ass Tiger Balm stuff that the jocks slapped into nerds jock straps.

All in all, the massage was pretty nice, but now my whole body is burning and tingling so badly, I can't tell if it is a sunburn or the Menthol. Probably a lethal combination of both.

What did we learn from our jaunt to Mexico? No massage in foreign lands! I'm happy to have you back!

Seriously, you need to ask more questions!!! Glad to hear from you thought Thailand had swallowed you. Hope you are having a great time. We love you!! Lay off the menthol!!

thanks for the heads up! I think I may opt for the oil massage. But, then I might be into a little self burn.

Apparently I do not learn from experience....because I actually got more than one Thai massage. After the initial shock wore off, it wasn't so bad.
