Great Idea Honey!

Wife: Honey, will you go to the spa with me today?
Husband: Spa? I'm not gay.

Wife: Come on.... It's so relaxing.... Just try it once for me.
Husband: How 'bout I stay home, mow the lawn, do the dishes, and the laundry?

Wife: Look, it's my treat, and if you don't like it then I won't ever ask again.
Husband: Well what the hell am I going to do there?

Wife: Well, they do facials, manicures, and pedicures....
Husband: No, no, AND no!

Wife: Oh I know... They do this thing where they wrap you up in warm towels soaked with peppermint oil and put you in a dark room with some soothing music... It's so relaxing and it makes you feel so refreshed!
Husband: Peppermint wrap, huh? I just lie there and chill with some warm towels on?

Wife: Yup. It's really wonderful.
Husband: I'll go under one condition.... You can't tell anyone, okay? And I'll do the silly peppermint wrap thing.

Wife: Deal.
Husband: Deal


  1. That must have been some STRONG peppermint and some really hot towels.

    Nothing like some second degree burns to get your wife to feeling guilty.

  3. Since he's already relinquished his man card he can go ahead and request the products for sensitive skin next time.

  4. They do look like second degree burns... but this is a hypersensitivity reaction... a contact dermatitis. Peppermint oil is 100% organic, so I really don't understand this.... But then again, I'm only a simple car-crash physician.

    And nice one, Dev... very nice.

  5. OMG that poor man!!! Yeah, right, should be totally safe cause it is organic. Did he end up on a steroid burst/taper or did it settle down without?

  6. I'm thinking that's proof of gayness. Real men can tolerate peppermeint, for crying out loud.

  7. "Real men can tolerate peppermeint, for crying out loud."

    Alternative hypothesis: his immune system recognized all that peppermint snugglin' against his skin, all nice and close like, and completely flew into a rage, inflamed and completely pissed that it had been exposed to something so aromatically limp wristed.

  8. Peppermint oil stings! One drop in a gallon of soapy water makes for a very nice cleaning solution for the bathroom. It is NOT meant for skin.

  9. That's hot (said in my best Paris Hilton voice) LOLOLOL!!! And Dev wins for best comment LOLOL.

  10. Surely you can work those injuries for some sympathy sex right?

  11. ain't seen a beatin like that since somebody stuck a banana in my shorts and turned a monkey loose...


  12. Don't think that will go away quickly. I do believe he has a burn and a histamine reaction as well. Poor guy can't take a shower (YOW-ZER), and, it's hotter than HELL out too.


  13. I think it makes you look sexy.

  14. I recently had a similar reaction to mint!! 2nd degree burns to my arms! We should talk as i am currently doing research and writing to the company.
    Do you know what type of mint oil they used? I will check back to your blog and see If we cam find others!
    Hope you are feeling better.
    Are you scared? I possibly will be!

  15. Oops!!! I meant to write "are you scarred?" :-)

  16. this was not me and i can't remmeber the young man's name then we are geting afoul of HIPAA, but i bet if you put something up on craig's list in the major cities you would get some people who have similar stories.
