What’s After the Basics

My friend’s condo suffered significant damage after a fire in the building. Thankfully, nobody was injured in the fire, but my friend was one of many people who were displaced. She is the totally put together independent type, so she said she had everything covered. She had a new place to stay, had already made a trip to Macy’s for clothes, had already hit the CVS for toiletries and such, and was on top of all of the insurance company communications. I wanted to do something, besides take her out for many pints, so I gave her a gift certificate for a spa. I hoped that for the 50 minutes she was getting a massage that she could unplug and put the trauma out of her mind, even if just for a bit. -B, 41
