It's been a while and there's a reason. Not a good one, but a reason nonetheless. I got a job offer. My girlfriend who owns her own place about 2 hours from here offered me a job running her place.
I'm pretty much running The Business as it is, but she's offering me enough so I could retire these much over-used hands. Her place employs 8 girls and does way more business than we do. They have a great location much closer to Philly, and their rates and door fee are higher than ours. Basically I could make the same just managing the place, without having to get my hands dirty (pun totally intended).
So why the change of heart now? It's not like I don't care about The Business. In fact, I probably care about this damn place way more than I should. It's just that with all that's happened with Audrey and Derek and everything else, I've been considering wiping the slate clean. And yes, I'm talking about a complete change including moving and everything.
Don't worry - I'll probably keep blabbing about the business, it'll just be a new business.
I haven't done anything yet, but I am seriously thinking about taking her up on the offer. We go way back and there isn't anything I wouldn't do for her. She's just been having trouble keeping an eye on her place due to some personal drama of her own. My only concern is that once she gets her shit together, she'll want to come back and take over. I mean, it's not like I can go over there for a year or so, then come back here and pick up my life where I left off.
So now I have a lot to think about. What I really want to do is manage my own tanning place, but instead I've become this sort of massage parlor management consultant.
I'm not saying I'm a great manager or anything, but I'm currently researching whether I can get a government bailout.
