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.

Aphrodites Pink Nightie...nice name, and color.

I get manicures regularly, but give myself pedicures. The one and only pedicure I ever had involved tickling, which was purely accidental on their part, but it was enough to turn me off to pedicures by other people altogether. My feet are just too sensitive to have someone else touch them.
