Wherein I express myriad incredulities

Student clinic

People who know me in person are also probably well acquainted with the crazy noises that my jaw can make. It’s unavoidable, weird, unpleasant (for everyone), and pretty uncomfortable (for me). One of the only things that really works on alleviating the issue is massage therapy. Because I have obligations like rent and student loans, I don’t have a huge budget for this, but almost every sizable town has a massage school somewhere, and the student clinics operate on much, much lower rates since they can’t work for fee until they are licensed (the fees you pay are usually a donation to the school). So for the last few months, I’ve been going on a pretty regular basis to have the most awesome lady work on my head/neck/shoulders.

While the price is definitely right, the ambiance tends to be a bit of a grab bag. Instead of having separate rooms for everyone, they have a larger workroom with sheets acting as wall-like dividers between the tables. This means that if someone is talking to their therapist on the other side of the sheet, you’re going to hear whatever they are saying.

A couple of weeks ago, I was next to a woman that made me feel completely and utterly sane, like no session of talk therapy ever could.

It went on like this for a while. I seriously debated telling her that breasts are really just collections of fat to see if it would make her head explode. I didn’t. Because I’m a nice person.

So sane. I am … so sane.
