there are many.
but today we discuss a blunder [a bad egg, if you will].
[J]’s mom purchased a groupon for two no-chip manicures & two pedicures. and kindly let me be her tag-along. naturally, I was excited. who turns down an opportunity to be pampered? not I.
this place was new to both of us. but it was a good deal, so we took the risk ..
whatever am I talking about? let me show & tell.
1. we were the only people in there. always makes you wonder.
2. mr. manicurist took two smoke breaks mid-mani/pedi. so pleasant when we’re sharing intimate air space.
3. I loved the color I picked out for both my fingers & toes – glittery red. ’tis the season. then I saw the end product ..
4. the least of our worries was our pedicures, until ..the shop owner became very concerned our socks & boots would damage our polish. her solution: paint our toes with
grease oil and cover them in glorified sandwich bags. then we were allowed to put our shoes back on.
joy to the world. we’ll never return there again.
and as always for those blunders, they make for great stories.
[this was just toooo good to keep to myself].
