I came up with what I feel is a failure-proof business idea the other night, and I am going to share it here, and you are welcome to use it as long as you give me full credit and 75% of the profits, which are sure to be huge. This idea came to me as I was reminiscing about various massages I’ve had in the past, and thinking of how a massage always leaves me in such a perfect state of relaxation that when the massage therapist murmurs to me that our time is up but I can take all the time I need to get up and get dressed, I am forced to ignore her instructions and bound up almost as soon as I hear the latch click in the door, lest I fall into so deep a slumber that I completely forget to get up and get dressed at all and they are forced to knock on the door 25 minutes later, at which point I’d have to scramble to get dressed and slink sheepishly out to the reception area, where they’d have to charge me for an extra appointment because the room had been unavailable for the next client.
And lo, it did occur to me that spas could offer the usual spa packages (massage plus pedicure, massage plus facial, massage plus soak in the hydrotherapy tub, etc.) but they could also offer a new package, massage plus nap, where they would leave you alone in the room after the massage, relaxed from the treatment, warm and cozy under the soft blankets, soothed by the dim lighting and plinky-plonky music, and then would tiptoe back into the room about an hour later, armed with a glass of water or a mug of hot chocolate or a plump cat to snuggle or a clean pair of socks warm from the dryer, depending of course on your preference.
Seriously, I would pay CASH MONEY for this service. The idea excited me so much that I actually laid awake in bed for over an hour thinking about it, which speaks volumes about the sheer brilliance of this business model, if you can overlook the irony of laying awake daydreaming about a nap.
