Things I Will Never Understand (8/21/12)


Why does drawing a white line at the tip of your toes cost $7 EXTRA?
It amounts to approximately .23 cents/second.
So, why do I continue to pay it?
Because I’m an idiot. And a slave to fashion. God help me.

    Oh wow, I am totally creeped out if it is a guy! I ask for one of “the ladies.” I blogged about my manicure that I trashed in the time it takes them to paint on the $7 parking line on your toes. But pedicures? Yes, ma’am. I heard the coolest thing on NPR (yeah, I’m one of THOSE) about how the rise of the Vietnamese nail industry came from a specific school that was set up to give the refugees/emigrants a way to make a living in the west after South Vietnam fell. And it grew from there.

      Doesn’t creep me out at all, LOL!

      And who says public television/radio should no longer be funded, as it’s educational component has declined? Well, a lot of folks, actually, though I am still a proponent. I mean, look at what I learned today because you listened to NPR!


  2. I just had my first pedicure a few weeks ago – and now I am totally addicted. I LOVE it. Can’t wait to go back. I’m going to do that French thing too, as you describe, for the seven dollars extra. Maybe it was the cute Korean guy massaging my legs that I liked. 🙂

      Where I go there used to be a guy. They are the best! I always left feeling “manhandled”, but in a good way, LOL. He left and was replaced by a woman. Of course no one will tell me where he went. Sometimes I find myself peeking into nail salon storefronts in other towns hoping to catch a glimpse of him. I wish I was kidding!

    I blame it on the Koreans.

    Why do women waste their time trying to pretty up their feet? Feet are the ugliest part of the human body. They should be covered at ALL times.

      I thought I was the only one! I feel NAKED showing my feet and I hate seeing other people’s. I’ve no idea where that stems from.

        I love getting a pedicure. Won’t show my feet without one. I love my flip-fops! It’s the extravagance of the “French” that I was bitching about, lol.
