As luck would have it, this typical twist of misfortune actually turns out to be a blessing. A wonderful day is spent eating amazing food and getting pampered in a spa. I have the best massage I've ever received, and I treat myself to a facial. Yes that's right; a facial. Where they scrub you and smooth all kinds of nice things into your skin, while you lie there and listen to soothing, twinkly music, with cucumbers on your eyes; and you do your best not to fall asleep because you're so relaxed yet you're loving it too much. A facial. And I'd do it again. Maybe even tomorrow. And I might get a pedicure. Maybe even a manicure. Actually I draw the line at a manicure. I'm not a big girls blouse.
After lunch, I'm starting to get my old self back. The one who doesn't feel like a half shut penknife, or suitable only for pouring down a drain. I've stopped quivering and shivering too; I can just about hold my hand level in front of me. I've come to realise that not shaking is a useful skill to acquire. Especially when playing pool for money. And shaving. And building a house made out of cards. Epic win.
Time will tell if I can keep it up. The odds are stacked against me, considering I really want a drink.
