T-minus 2 days till we're off to the beach. I've got my suitcase almost packed, gotten my hair done, taken my pasty white skin to the tanning booth and I'm even getting a manicure tonight. I have one last thing to take care of before I am truly beach ready. I've got to give myself a pedicure. Given the current state of my feet, this is no small feat. I haven't had a pedicure in years. Mainly because the last pedicure I had was so awful that I ended up with sore feet and a wonky toenail. Call me scarred for life I guess. That was about 10 years ago. I often think it would be lovely to go and have one done again but I don't think I'd want to subject an esthetician to my awful runners feet. I imagine they'd have to bring out the big guns to deal with the callouses. Much like this scene from Dumb and Dumber, with the exception that I at least cut my toenails on a regular basis.
I took a cruise through Winners to see if I could find a pedicure kit or some kind of fancy pumice scrub to at least soften the callouses a bit. I can't take them off, not at this point in my training. I managed to find a fancy little kit for $5.99. What a bargain! So tonight's task will be to fix up my feet so they are ready to be seen in public. I've picked out a lovely corally red colour that should cover up the black toenails quite nicely with about 3 coats. Here's hoping that my little kit is up to the task and that I don't have to break out the power tools.
