I'm warning you this isn't very exciting but as I already explained I don't have a lot of blog-post-preparation time these days, but I do want to discuss something:
This morning while I was clipping my toenails (how lovely, you can just picture it right?) I remembered this time I went for a pedicure and as the gal was just about to paint my toenails I asked if she could please trim and shape them first. She looked up at me like are you serious? and said she would but that it was a strange request that she had never been asked before. Whaaaaaa? She was giving me a pedicure which by definition is: professional care and treatment of the feet, as removal of corns and trimming of toenails. Trimming of toenails right? It's not like I asked her to give me highlights. Anyway. It made me wonder if I was the only ragamuffin out there that doesn't trim my own toenails in preparation for a pedicure. That led me to think about other similar situations, like the times I wash my hair before I go to the hairdresser, or my girlfriend that cleans the house before the housekeeper shows up.
Do we just not want people to see us in our unkempt state when our unkempt state is the very reason we are employing their services?
Are you a pre-pedicure toenail trimmer or a pre-hair appointment hair washer?
