Wednesday, 22 June 2011, Day 211/365.
A new business opened up around the corner from my house about a month ago and it has these balloons out the front so that people will notice it I guess. That’s if the big sign painted across the window doesn’t also attract their attention.
The first I knew of this business was when I walked my son to school one day – not far from this business – and a local news channel stuck a camera in my face and the interviewer asked me what I thought of the bikini massage parlour that had opened up down the road.
I hadn’t heard of the new business but I know about the brothel that’s down the road. This is a separate business to that as I found out.
Of course many of the school parents are up in arms about its proximity to the school and rightly so.
It’s all quite seedy. It looks seedy. The guy who runs it is apparently very shady but I guess guys don’t mind paying money to get their rocks off so seediness probably isn’t on their radar.
Mum heard about it on the news (fortunately I didn’t make it because I didn’t quite say what they were after) and she jokingly suggested I get a job there. This was before I found more gainful employment.
Honestly, apart from the balloons out the front of this place going flat I haven’t noticed it at all. I haven’t seen streams of men going in and out or roaming around my place after having their ‘massage’. Hopefully it stays that way.
