(idea courtesy of a young friend): Who doesn't love having his or her back scratched? And yet, sometimes there's just not someone around with whom you're on intimate enough terms to ask for a scratch. Wouldn't it be great if there were small storefronts -- maybe even incorporated into existing Starbucks since they don't need much space, a kiosk, if you will -- where for a small fee, someone would scratch your back for 5 minutes.

       Buy three scratches, get one pat free.   

       You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours. But have you seen a doctor about this skin condition of yours?

       lower, a little to the left please. Perhaps a back scratching machine would be better suited to this? Certainly working at this kiosk would be high on my list of 'jobs I am happy not to have'. Picturing hairy backs *shudder*.

       Oh dear lord, it hadn't occurred to me anyone would picture scratching naked backs... NO SHIRT NO SERVICE.
