Twinkle Fingers

Darwin and I both got manicures yesterday. That's a pretty good sign we won't be doing much work this weekend, don't you think?

Lest you all think I've turned my poor unsuspecting husband into a "girly mahn," it was almost his idea. He loves me to give him manicures - no polish - so when we saw the nail salon after dinner last night, I thought, hey why not? He was nervous about going by himself, so I generously volunteered to accompany him and get a manicure myself.

As I'm typing this, I catch glimpses of the lovely watermelon pink of my nails. I sort of like this. Reminds me of the days before I became exceedingly lazy about my appearance, and I painted my nails a different color every day. In high school, half the people signing my yearbook mentioned the nail polish. Oh, how I miss the mint blue polish that was my favorite then.

Still, I probably won't be back to the manicurist for a while. I can do this at home and get pretty much the same results. Darwin's manicure, on the other hand (see what I did there!), was miraculous! If he gets any work done this weekend, I bet he'll wear gloves.

It sounds like fun. Next time see if you can get him to have a pedicure, he'll be addicted. It's like having someone else wash your hair, it feels so good and it's relaxing.

I got Josh to go once, and he said he'd rather spend his $40 elsewhere! I'm thinking I need another chance, though. Maybe he'll get hooked! You really changed your polish every day? Wow!
