Pedicure results

Well, the pedicure on Friday went well. I managed to survive without somehow embarrassing myself completely.

However, I wouldn't say that I'm going to become a pedicure "junkie" anytime soon. It was fine and my toes look nice now, but I'm not sure they look nice enough to justify the $45 price tag for the "spa pedicure". I'm so cheap!!!

The woman (no men working in the pedicure area, by the way) who did my pedicure was very nice and didn't laugh at my feet. She even found my pinky toe toenail and was able to paint it. I was impressed.

The chairs had heating and massage capability built into them, so that was interesting to play around with. But to tell you the truth, I was so pre-0ccupied with watching what the woman was doing, I didn't really notice much about the chair until the very end.

I got a little worried when she brought out what appeared to be some wire-cutters and began cutting my cuticles and toenails with them. One wrong move with those things and you would be a world of hurt!!! Luckily, she seemed to be very familiar with the instruments of the trade and I survived unscathed.

I would post a picture of my toes, but I haven't figured out exactly how to do that yet. I'll check into it...

So, overall, it was fine. It wasn't earth-shattering or life-changing. Just fine. I can't see myself wanting to make it a habit. Maybe if there's some kind of really special occasion where I needed to have nice looking feet, like a... ummm..... well, I can't think of anything that would be so special I would need nice looking feet. Looks like I'm not getting another pedicure any time soon.


I think I may have figured out how to post a picture of my pretty toes...

I had a pedicure once. I think. It was very memorable. A massage, I could used to that. Toenails and fingernails with weird colors on them doesn't excite me as much.

You have to get a few pedicures before you get hooked. Then again, it's cheaper to do them at home, but you don't get the pampering, and every mom needs someone to pamper her now and then.
