I went to get my toenails sheared yesterday. I trim them up at home as much as possible, but the frontal protrusions (dang boobs!) get in the way so much that I have a hard time really doing a good job of evening them out nicely. So, about once a month or so I toddle off to the local nail salon for a pedicure. This process is absolute TORTURE for me because my feet are so, so very ticklish. They are the only part of my body that is ticklish because when I was about 11 my cousin held me down and tickled me until I LITERALLY PEED MYSELF! (Kathy if you read this, please go punch the big lug for me. Thank you.) At that point I suddenly just stopped laughing and have never been ticklish since. Hmmmm.. I wonder why???
When I was working fulltime I kept my nails done all the time, too. It took me forever to find a manicurist who would do it the way I want it done. They all wanted to cut off my nails and put on tips and then put the acrylic over the fake ones. My own nails are so strong that when I was a computer tech back in the 90s I'd use my thumbnail to turn screws inside the mainframe case when I couldn't get a screwdriver in there. All I wanted the nail tech to do was put on a very thin overlay that would keep them looking nice longer than the couple of days that just polishing them would do. They invariably wanted to heap the goo on so thick that my nails looked like eagle talons! Once, after the 4th round of making her grind off more of thick layer she'd applied after I told her I wanted it very thin, one tech yelled at me, "You make-a me clazy, lady!" I was so mad that said, "Ok, I can fix that problem!" and left without paying her a dime. I still have to go by that place when I go into the UPS store. She's still there and glares at me every time I walk by. There's a nail place in every shopping center in this town, so tough cookies for her!! LOL!
Anyway - back to yesterday. When I sat down, the nail tech said, "You wan spayshul spa pedicure toodaee? It better for you and only 4 dolluh mow." She looked at me like I'd lost my mind when I burst out laughing before agreeing to the extra charge. Right then and there I knew I had to come share this video with y'all.

Have a very Tickly Tuesday!
