What the Heck are a Hot Steam Porter Shave, a Back Facial, and a Body Polish?

We received an e-mail from Grandpa Jerry the other day that included an advertisement for a Phoenix area Salon & Spa. My first thought was that he was angling for one of the offered holiday gift card packages offered in the ad, but realized that he wasn't planning to travel to Arizona any time soon. Besides, the salon didn't offer any major plastic surgery packages so what would be the point?

Anyway, he asked about the model pictured in this portion of the ad:

It finally dawned on me that this is Rachel, who, after many years of modern living should be taking on the last name of Burri. From Wisconsin to California, to Arizona she has been with Chris, Grandpa Jerry's son.

I have 7 nephews. Chris is the only non-twin in that crew. Therefore, his girl is not as glamorous as the rest of my nieces nor as smart. But she tries hard. Beside the modeling, Rachel is close to getting her Ph.D. in psychology at the U. of AZ.

Rachel chose psychology because she saw the state of the world and wanted to make a difference. She also knew the Burri family so had a very high standard toward which she could direct the unwashed masses.

The modeling? She's been doing that for a long time and realizes that if ObamaCare passes, she will have something to fall back on.
