On another note, I wanted to share my experience from last weekend when I got an hour away to go get my tootsie’s done.  I was so excited to just sit and relax and there is something about getting your feet and lower legs massaged that is just so relaxing!!
The young girl took me to my chair which was lined up with about 5 others on one wall and across from me was another set of 6 chairs with people in them getting the same treatment. 
‘WE ARE ALL SO LUCKY’<—those were my thoughts.
A guy came over and sat down which always throws me off guard, not that I’m against a man doing my toes, but I initially had the fear that when the end came and he painted my toes, he wouldn’t get the paint on the entire nail or smudge it or something… horrible, right?
I buried myself in my cell phone which has plenty of APS to keep me entertained and even sent a text to my step mom to thank her for recommending this place which later I find out—
I’m at the wrong place. 

I look up from my space in heaven and glance over to a sight that nearly had me vomiting in my hands. 
Imagine if you will (sorry to do this to you)…. a young kid which I believe was a boy with spiky punk rock hair and a very small body frame sitting at the end of one of the chairs holding up a VERY large woman’s leg with a great deal of struggle.  We’re talkin’ a TRUNK of a leg.  I could get past that part and just felt bad for him because it was a definite work out for his itty bitty frame.  I think it was the fact that he had one of these:

foot shaver…and was literally SHAVING off layers, upon layers of skin off this woman’s feet.  It was all I could do to look away and keep from being sick.  I lost all my relaxation mojo and couldn’t stop looking!!! I was grossed out and what was crazy was that this little man doing her feet had a smile on his face and was wearing no gloves.  I just was amazed…. and more so THANKFUL that this was not my job.  I seriously think that Mike Rowe from ‘Dirty Jobs’ on TLC should look into this career.  Its really disgusting!

dirty jobs  Albeit nasty, I got lucky with the dude who did mine because he painted my nails perfectly and even gave me some lil’ sassy flowers!  (Don’t judge my toes… I can’t help it if they’re long and floppy… they get me where I need to go)….
MY FEET Have a good weekend!

Love all your aboute me stuff! I don't like going barefoot at home but I do at work. Go figure.

That's really gross about the lady at the salon. If I had to have skin SHAVED off my feet I would definately not being having that done in public! ICK!

Your toes look cute! I really want to go get a pedicure ... just no time!

I GOT AN AWARD!!!!! You are so sweet!!!! I PUFFY HEART love you!

You love storms? These tornadoes are making me NOT love storms.

I don't like going barefoot either! That's funny!

Agree about blogging stressing me out. It does and I don't know why!

Your long floppy toes are adorable! It's better than short fat toes, right?


Emmy said...

Ugh you are right- definitely a nasty job! Ewwww.
There is definitely something so awesome about a foot/leg rub.

And thank you so much for the award- that did brighten my day.

Aww-- suuuWEET!!! Thanks for the bloggy love.

Your toesies are cute!! I doubt you are preggers. I mean.. my toes looked like stuffed sausages for 9 months.

Dazee Dreamer said...

Love your toes. so cute.

I am the same about sharing food. There is nothing I hate worse than someone coming up to my desk and taking a fry or something else off my plate. I have swatted their hands and told them to back off. I will offer if I like you, but only then.
