My First Pedicure


Today was my first ever pedicure....these are not my feet, but mine look almost as pretty! I took the day off work to spend with Molly and one of the things she wanted to do before she went to California was get a manicure, so I signed up for my first-ever pedicure.


I have mixed emotions about the pedicure experience. The woman who did it barely spoke English so every time she spoke to me I had to have her repeat it.... I think she may have gotten a little carried away with the cheese grater thingy that they use to remove the dead skin. My left foot feels like she went down to the nerve endings! Also, my chair didn't vibrate which I think may have taken my mind off the cheese grater thing had it been vibrating... and one more thing... I think my feet may be more sensitive than the other ladies having theirs done at the same time as me because when she scrubbed the bottom of my foot I really had to fight my instinct to kick her..... everyone else seemed to be enjoying their pedicure.


On the bright side....my feet look great and I hope to remember to take much better care of them this summer season!

Congrats on your first pedi. I feel the same way when I get mine done - I have ticklish feet and it is sometimes hard not to jerk them away!

I did that one time and vowed never again. I just buy sandals that cover a lot of my foot now! It was not a good experience and my feet must have been really bad because they threw away every tool after they used them! Embarrassing!

“I think my feet may be more sensitive than the other ladies having theirs done...”o—It's because that was your first pedicure experience. The others may not seem to notice the discomfort as their feet were all used to some “cheese grater” feel. Anyhow, it's good to hear that you had a great time with your first pedicure.
