So it turns out that the post-apocalyptic world is kind of a lot like the pre-apocalyptic world. There’s a ton of waiting. Like how you’d be in school and you’d be sitting in class and the teacher would be reviewing for a test and you’d have to kind of pay attention, because you’d seen the stuff before, but you hadn’t really paid attention the first time around either, so now you’re stuck just watching and kind of listening and not really being part of the world. It’s like that all the time now.
Martha rarely comes in for a massage lately. She used to come in with Philip, Flip, her husband. Today Martha’s here for the first time in months—she’s alone, and she doesn’t know I know about the separation. But this world, our world, isn’t big. And I can feel it in her muscles; I can feel that she’s letting him go. She bought a short session today, so I get right to it.
