Part of being on the cruise (as an anniversary present to ourselves) involved pampering ourselves.
Not only did we eat and drink to our happy hearts content, we indulged in pampering activities.
We had a couple’s massage which basically meant we got a massage at the same time and they had us hold hands at the very end. It was Dad’s first massage ever. He seems unscathed. Maybe even content.
I went to the Fish Spa in Costa Maya. Do you remember the episode from Victorious where they all go to the place where you put your feet in water and tiny little fish nibble away all your calluses? This was like that except not.
First they scrubbed my feet and shins (clearly this was all about taking off enough skin ahead of time so that the fish would be safe and healthy). Once they’d scrubbed down to sinew, I got to put my feet into the fish-quarium. It felt like tiny vibrations. (I was assured that they fish were not piranhas and wouldn’t bite, just kiss.) It tickled.
The fishies did not get rid of all my callouses. (But it’s not clear that a buzz saw could get rid of my calluses, so I consider it a win.)
