Barack, Please Bail Out My Back

We don’t need to tell you why you should spend a little time at a spa — just ask the calluses on your feet and the golf ball-size knots chillin’ on your upper back. Maybe they’re there because of the time you spend hunched over the computer on your never-ending quest for Internet porn, or because of the stress from having to fill up your car with pennies each day. Either way, a little R&R is your friend. Some folks might think it frivolous and irresponsible to spend money on pampering in the year of the bailout, but Spa Week is all about the discounts. The whole concept was founded on the idea that manis, pedis, and the like should be available to everyone, not just the elite few. Beginning this Monday, treatments that would usually cost $100 to $200 will go for just $50. Considering that each post-date massage you’ve been offered during the past year has had air quotes flying all around it, isn't it time you finally let a professional take a stab at improving your posture? Visit for a list of participating beauty institutions. And we mean visit today and make your reservation today; the slots fill up fast every year.
