The Massage


Once a week I go to see Bruno, my kiné - (kinésithérapeute = physiotherapist). I lie on the massage table, look up and there is this print...

Claude Serre, who died in 1998, was a well-known French illustrator, with a somewhat black sense of humour.

  1. Mon Dieu, c'est terrible ! Je n'aime pas trop les massages mais là ça va m'en dégoûter pour de bon (lol). Trop rigolo.

  4. AAAAAAAH, I've seen this before and I love it! :-)))))

    What a black sense of humour for a kiné to have that in front of his massage table! I hope he treated your better than that!

  5. You're thinking like a photographer even at your massage. Doesn't it just feel that way sometimes, as if we are that fragile. Wonderful post.

  13. I am going Friday to have my back worked on before I return to Paris. I don't care what he does if I feel better. Maybe that will be moi! HAHAHAHA. Actually mine's a physical therapist. I have high hopes for some relief.
