I Do For You Baby

On occasion I indulge in a little, well, indulgence, by visiting my local nail salon, OK Nails. Yes, I know, they don't exactly set the bar too high with that name. But it's cheap and you don't need an appointment so it's all good.

And yes, this is the same nail salon that plied Bev and I with cheap pink wine and painted flowers on as many nails as they could before we slurrily protested (after all, they're only $4 more).

Over the years I've learned to just get a pedicure when asked, otherwise this is the ensuing conversation:

OK - What I do for you, baby?
Me - Manicure please.
OK - you want pedicure too?
Me - (it's middle of winter, even I don't see my toes, never mind anyone else). No thank you.
OK - Why you no want pedicure? (all the other nail techs now stop and stare).
Me - Ummmm, I just don't. But thanks.
OK - Ohhhhh, you no have a boyfriend, baby?
Me - What?
OK - Why you no have boyfriend?
Me - Ummmm, I...I'm married.. What does that have to do with...
OK - Ohhhh, you no have boyfriend. You have pedicure, you get boyfriend, baby.
Me - I'm not sure my husband would appreciate that.
OK - Ohhhhhh, you afraid.
Me - Of a pedicure?
OK - You get nice boyfriend.
Me - *sigh* fine. I'll take a pedicure. Where's my crappy pink wine?


This lady has obviously visited OK Nail's sister shop.

So does Hubby get upset when you come home with pedicure?

"Only for you, baby! I do for you, make nice!"

I need to get my ass up to (Just) OK Nails next Wed. What do ya say? Something sparkly before NYE? :)

Love this video! It's funny AND eerily accurate.

I'm so glad I'm a man and only have to bit the nail off and spit it on the floor.

Frank - He's one of those who don't see my feet. What? We sleep in our own twin beds, like old people.

Bev - Absolutely! Morgan will have to be our designated driver. I'll bring a phone book.

Coffey - Shhhhhhhh.... don't tell anyone, that's how I roll in between visits to the OK.

oh, Mala! That so funny! You find good clip, pretty lady! It just like that at Nail Salon - why I do my own... but I have no boyfriend, so... - wait, what?

Mala said...

Porky - I knew you'd totally understand!

MtnMama - Trust, it hasn't really helped me get a boyfriend... but I still workin' on Stuart.

It doesn't sound that you like him. You must not feel that you have to be with him because he is nice or because he really likes you. If things have not work out in two months they are not going to work out in the following 2 months either
