Life List Day 130 - Get a Pedicure
There are women who love pampering, and then there's me. It's not that I don't think I'm worth the trouble - it's more that it seems a chore rather than a pleasure.
I had my first (and only) pedicure a few years ago. I liked having colored toenails, but frankly I found the pedicure a bit painful. I went to some place in a mini mall called Nails! that had a big crowd, figuring, like a busy restaurant, it had to be a good sign. At one point, the pedicurist was massaging my feet, digging in so hard I nearly leapt from my chair. "If you want, I do extra 5 minutes for one dollar," he said. I wanted to say, "I'll pay you FIVE dollars to STOP," but I just said no thanks and grimaced my way through.
Today I went for a pedicure to see if I might be able to channel my inner diva and actually ENJOY it. After all, I do the Bikram yoga pretty regularly now, and it involves a lot of staring at your feet.
This time wasn't as miserable as the first, although I still can't say I enjoyed it.
But I do like having nice, pink toenails - Aphrodites Pink Nightie to be specific.
