TODAY’S BLOG DEDICATED TO MARK EVANS…OR AT LEAST HIS FEAR OF BEING TICKLED!!

HERE WE GO!

HERE WE GO!

This, my friends, is the face of trepidation!  This is the face of uncertainty and fear!  This is the face of Mark Evans as he sat down to have the FIRST massage of his life be administered by the lovely and talented Heather from Utopia Tan and Skin Care.  Why is he so nervous?  Why so uncertain?  Because Mark is very, very ticklish and has never allowed himself to have a massage before.  I must step up and commend him for confronting his fears on the show today.  Not only did he do it in front of all of his co-workers, he did it live on the air for all of you listeners to check out.  Well done, Mark!  You beat the fear and actually seemed to enjoy it by the end!  The moral for all of you kids out there is that once you confront your fears, they really don’t seem that bad after all!

IT SEEMED TO WORK WELL!!

HEY...THIS AIN'T SO BAD!

HEY...THIS AIN'T SO BAD!

Here is our friend Mark after about 10 minutes of neck and shoulder massage by Heather.  See the relaxation in his face.  See how he actually seems to really be getting into it and is showing relaxation!  He wouldn’t fully relax, though, because he was certain someone was going to poke him in the sides or give him the full-on side tickle.  No one ever did, though and he made it through the ordeal (his) with flying colors.  He even said that it should be done again.  If you’d like to be like Mark…you can contact Utopia Tan and Skin Care in Marquette.  We thank the tolerant Heather for coming in with the rest of the Utopia Crew this morning for this wonderful moment in local radio history!

IT WAS A BUSY SHOW AS WELL!
