It seems that any time my worrier is with me, something will happen to exacerbate the fears. For example, when I took my child to come with me to get my nails done, she sat at the table next to me. While I was getting manicure, she was getting a regular polish.
Now, this particular salon puts on a neck warmer and massages with a hot roc- it is pure comfort. So much so, that I like to semi zone out- which on this day, was a bad idea. You see, there is a muted TV which airs….. shows while you’re waiting to dry. When I saw how focused my child was at the screen, I continued zoning out….. that is, until she gave me a look of fear.
Apparently, the news was on- showing the mid-day murders. Needless to say, my rest and relaxation turned into a two hour therapy session.
