Running fullspeed through my inbox this morning, I gleaned that The Shops at 690 Jonestown are having a Spring Fling today from noon-7 PM, wherein locally-owned businesses are hosting events, with snacks, and giveaways, yadda-yadda-yadda...
And my first thought was sounds fun, but I have about 60 kablillion to-dos that have to get to-done today.
But then I saw that among other enticing freebies (chair massage, skin analysis, yadda-yadda-yadda...) one of the businesses, Michael Feilds, is offering:
FREE Paraffin Hand Treatments
Have you ever had a paraffin hand treatment? They are like a trip to heaven for hands ravaged by winter. The last time I had one (it's been, oh, at least two years now), I spent an embarassingly long time rubbing my hands over one another trying not to touch anything else, because nothing else was as soft as my beautiful hands. (Eventually though you have to open a door, or grip a steering wheel, or wash a dish, yadda-yadda-yadda...)
So I was sitting for a second remembering my silky, lovely hands of long ago but then I sort of pep-talked myself to plan the order in which to do my errands, let's get back on task, Lucy, chop-chop.
Only when I looked down to where my hands should be, I saw that they had been replaced by some sort of prehistoric, lizardish claw-appendages. They look ancient. They feel ancient.
So I'll be making every effort to stop by 690 Jonestown today.
