- My heart wanted to buy them just like I carelessly did during the festive season when I spent up to the last coin with abandon
- The massage seat has all the signs of innocence from far
- You want to let out a moan, but you know that moaning is for the weak, so you hold it in
I was walking aimlessly in the mall looking with nostalgia at all the things that I could effortlessly afford in December.
In this hardship month of January they look so distant and alien.
My heart wanted to buy them just like I carelessly did during the festive season when I spent up to the last coin with abandon, but the wallet is not cooperating.
In order to make myself appear relevant and not just enjoying free Wi-Fi in the mall, I stumbled into a station that displays massage seats for hire and sale.
As an enticement and pre-sales service, they offer you unlimited access to the seat so that you can have a taste of what you are buying.
After my experience with the free trial that I will try to describe here, I concluded that the massage seat must be the devil's invention.
He must have created the seat in order to lure happily married men from their matrimonial beds in order to go and get married to massage seats in the big malls and beauty parlours.
The massage seat has all the signs of innocence from far. It has the demeanour of an abandoned seat used by a senior manager who has disappeared for lunch from 11am to 3pm.
But underneath the upholstery lies the devil incarnate.
Because he knows that most of the prospective buyers have never encountered such an item of luxury before, the vendor is very considerate and tolerant.
He doesn’t employ your regular beauty contestant to man the seat and lure customers with their physical appeal.
Rather he poached a lady called Mary from a remote place called Ruthigiti.
She is well mannered and she looks away shyly when you start to remove your jacket and shoes as per the user instructions.
The exercise starts politely as Mary requests you to remove your socks as well and step on a flat pad.
You feel like you are entering a holy place and it reminds you of the burning bush.
