Suffering from a monster headache, I made Sean comb my hair with his nails one evening and I began rambling about how I should make Julian comb my hair some more (he has been into it lately and it's awesome
) and how, growing up, i never made the connection that I love it because my mom does too. That it could be a genetic thing or something, because the older I get--as they say-- I discover more things I have in common with my mother. But then I said, "well, but then, who doesn't
like getting their head touched.." And Crazy Sean reminded me that he, in fact, doesn't. Massages, nothing. I know, right? WHAT? And he went into it a little bit and, though it's nothing new, I replied, aghast:
I can't believe it, you don't need physical touch! You repel it!
I feel like i relax less... with it.
Bah! I'm so the opposite.
It introduces more unknowns and I can't relax.
Unknowns? What, like all of a sudden I'm going to produce a razor blade and slice your scalp!
exactly! And that, by the way, is exactly what telling stories is like with Julian. Just as I'm winding down he'll throw out, "and then there was a knock at the door!
" Or I'll say, "and then Julian came home and went to bed" a he'll interrupt with "...but his bed wasn't there!
And I laughed, and as I surveyed the evening and life in general I thought, this is aaaaaalright.
p.s. out of curiosity who else out there is
a freak like Sean? Are there more like that? How?
I'm with you, Jen. Sean is a crazy. Massage is a gift from the gods, and when I'm rich, I'll get one at least once a week, maybe once a day.
I laughed out loud when I read that bit about Julian's stories. I guess that's what comes from having a wildcard for a mother.
Also, I do have some personal space issues. I do like getting massages (who doesn't, SEAN?), but I don't like having my hair touched. Though, that might be more about my hair than it is about personal space.
One way or the other, I do NOT like it when someone stands too close to me in line at the grocery store.
Your cousin, my husband. Especially the neck, no tickling the neck! Also, I saw your mom last night, and since I failed to say this to her directly, you may pass on that I think she is just beautiful and I would like to look like her when I am her age.
Oh, me too! Love it. I will tell her. Tell Rob what the hey? Just because. Not about anything specific.
I am pretty positive that Sean used to go to a place in Provo to get his hair cut only because the lady gave him a head-massage. It was his buddy's wife or something. Ask him about it. There's some ammo for you to win this fight! lol :-)
WHAT. Ok, so maybe he just prefers a professional. I'm so offended! Wait, maybe I'm like Monica and give painful massages and no one can bring themselves to tell her!
I seriously doubt this though. Monica and i have opposite personalities. If anyone, I'm a Phoebe, and she IS a professional. I swear I haven't watched Friends in like years and years, and yet still, it is a daily part of my vocabulary.
