Escaping the Tyranny of Whistler

Page 3 of 3

If you don’t believe me, ask your physio. You have one, don’t you? Of course you do, we all do. Physiotherapists are to Whistler what psychiatrists are to cities. They keep us healthy and functioning. They ultrasound and electrocute us, manipulate battered joints and overextended muscles, teach us gentle exercises to revitalize popped knees, battered shoulders and floppy wrists. When you ask them how business is, they just smile. They look forward to our days off even more than we do.

There are only two cures for the Tyranny of Whistler. You can move to somewhere else, or you can get a few more jobs and have no days off. If you choose to stay and suffer days off, find a good physio. You’ll be exhausted and probably injured when your Monday rolls around.

But, as my Perfect Partner likes to point out, you can always rest when you go back to work.
