Yesterday my sisters took me to a spa for my birthday to get a mani, a pedi and a facial. The facial was wonderful. Susan had amazing hands as she stroked my face with the various beautifully scented products and wrapped the warm towel around my face as relaxing music soothed my soul. It was so peaceful. The pedi was next and that was a different story. The three of us sat on our “thrones” next to each other as the ladies placed our feet in our whirlpools and then lathered lotion on our legs and feet as we all chatted about various topics. I did not mind the sanding of the rough edges of my feet and soles. A tad ticklish, but that was okay. As Susan began to aggressively file my toenails I began to tense. It set my teeth on edge. She quickly said, “Relax!” As she progressed from the big toe down the line to the smaller toes, the more uncomfortable I got. When she got to my baby toe she said,” I think you could swing from a limb with that toe you are so tense.” Fat chance I would put my little piggy through that! I thought to myself. By the end of it all my toenails were a beautiful lavender color. The things we do for beauty.
