I did get him to get away for a few hours on our last few days and get a couples massage down in Waikiki. We went to the Olakino Spa. Nick has never had a professional massage before, and I thought he and I both deserved one.
When I made the appointment, I was told that our masseurs would be female, but it could change. Nick was very firm about NOT wanting a male rubbing on him. So he was threatening me the entire drive to the spa that he would walk out and let me have my own massage if he had to be 'rubbed on' by a man. Okay, whatever. "Yes, dear."
We were shown to the locker rooms and given robes, which I didn't realize would be so transparent until I put it on. YIKES! Thank goodness I could overlap the robe in front. (But not so much in the back) As I walked out to meet Nick in the waiting area, I prayed there wouldn't be anyone else around. Phew! Greeting me with his own transparent robe and two glasses of water, was Nick, strolling around the waiting area, completely relaxed. I, however, sat down in the first chair closest to me. "DID YOU NOTICE THESE WERE VERY THIN!?!?!" Nick didn't seem to care.
(Picture taken with my phone...sorry its blurry)
We were soon taken back to the couples room and introduced to our 'people'. Mine was a cute little local lady and Nick's, YOU GUESSED IT, was a MAN! [insert: loud burst of laughter]
They left us for a minute to let us slip under the sheets on our assigned massage tables. Nick looks over at me and says, "Do you think we can trade???"
"No, Nick, get over it."
I got 80 minutes of aromatherapy, and Nick got the Lomi Lomi massage.
It must not have been too bad....
Nick, post massage, completely relaxed.
