I decided to do something today that I have never done in my entire 47 years: I got a pedicure. Sat in the vibrating chair, feet in the steaming hot whirlpool bath, head leaned back enjoying the sensations...

Oh. My. Goodness. I feel like a new woman. I can see how a woman can get addicted to this sort of thing. It was darned near a religious experience. The idea that I can walk into a place and an attractive young man will bathe, trim, pamper, lotion, and massage my feet while I sit like a queen is amazing.

He just put a white polish on this time. Next time, I'll get a pretty color. Pink, perhaps. Maybe red. I'll have to give it some thought.

It just seems such an extravagance, such a waste of money. But I decided that I have gone without buying myself any new clothes for over 2 years, I never go out "with the girls" and spend money in bars, I do all the errand running, hold down a stressful job... One little pamper?

I could justify it. I'm glad I did. They don't even look like my own feet, all pink and smooth and almost pretty.

I almost feel pretty and not just like an old drudge, a filly instead of an old plow horse.

Help me Mama yeah can't publish my blog

Did it flow? LOL

Seriously though...

...Would you mind going into my blog each night before you drift to sleepy town and publish whatever I may have saved as a draft?

I am at the in-laws until Wed. and for some reason I can save a draft but I can't get it to publish from here. I think it is a combination of their ancient computer and piss poor connection. I have this problem every time I visit here.

Thanks BlogMama,

Pedicures are the best, aren't they? I'm secure enough in my manhood to admit that I love 'em, I just don't get them regular enough. Buthat has all changed now. I met a gal on a job that makes house calls for that sorta thing!
Takes an extravagance and makes it so convenient, can't pass it up!
Guys, you don't know whatcher missing.....

One reason I live in Bangkok, is to walk into a storefront, clean, air-con Reflexology massage place and pay $4.80 for an hour-plus of foot-leg-pampering.

Nyah-nyah! Tough knuckles, Kiddo.

(Translated: Glad you pampered yourself, but wish you could sample the goods HERE! :)

You're lucky! We don't have attractive young men at my local nail place. I'm sure I'd get pedicures a lot more often if there were!
