The Joy of Boys 6

They fight over who will give me a massage.  A full on brawl with pushing and shoving and a little more than that.   I have to beg, plead and barter with Paco to get the shortest lifeless back rub in the world.  Don't even get me started on foot rubs.  They should put weekly foot rubs in the fine print of marriage contracts.  Meanwhile the earthlings are eager to please me, quick to volunteer and determined to be first in everything.  The massage itself may only be likened to a bumpy roller coaster ride but the affection and fervor they put into each thud on my back is more soothing than any professional massage.
