What type of massage would you like?

I am going on a trip with three of my sisterchicks. I was researching the area, because I was once a girl scout, and you have to be prepared you know.

I found eating places that someone had told me about. Things that they said would be fun and then I came across a spa place. They had all kinds of spas and massages. Regular massages, hot rock massages, herbal massages, hand and feet massages and on and on. While they all sound enticing, there was one type of massage that did not.

Ear candle massaging.

Apparantly, they get candles to burn the 'excess' wax out of your ears.

I don't know about you but I'm kind've fond of the excess wax in my ears. The wax and I have learned to adapt together.

This reminds me of my honeymoon. Hubster and I went on a cruise. While we were on this big boat in the middle of nowhere, he tells me that he can't hear out of one ear. (I think this is where his selective listening started) Hi honey, I love you!

Anyway, we knew they didn't have any ear wax removal at the gift shop. Can you just imagine what the clerk would think when you came to the gift shop and said, "I'd like some suntan lotion spf 80, that cool shell keychain, some bunny ears, and some ear wax please."

I put some saline solution from his contacts in his ear. It didn't work. He did however, have some nice clean ears after that.

For a couple of days, he walked around not hearing anything.

When we got home, the first thing he did was buy some ear wax removal stuff. All I'm going to say is this, that stuff works.

So, no, I don't think I'll pay $60 for someone to burn a candle in or near my ear in order to remove excess wax, when I can buy a bottle of ear wax removal at the local drug store for $5.
