Me, a Man, and His First Professional Pedicure

I made a wager with my wife. She was not interested in winning money if she won. No, she wanted me to do something I would never do unless I was forced to. She knew I would never go back on a bet. I am not a gambler at all. I do not play the lottery, and I do not go to casinos. However, I thought this wager between my wife and I was okay. I should never have done it as I lost the bet. Now I had to pick the place where we would have pedicure services done together. I have never had a pedicure or a manicure in my life. Guys usually do their own nails. At least guys like me do.

The only thing I was thinking about was taking my shoes and socks off and it being like that scene in the Dumb and Dumber movie where the two lead characters were getting a makeover. The Jim Carey character had awful looking toenails. The technician, in the movie, actually used an industrial grinder on them. I was picturing that. My wife told me that I took pretty good care of my toenails and feet, so there was nothing to be embarrassed about. Yeah, right. I was going to be the only guy sitting there getting his toenails done. However, when I got there, I found out that a lot of men come in for manicures, and a few have pedicures done too. Some guys come in with a wife or girlfriend, but a number of them come in on their own too.

It was not a bad experience, even though my feet are ticklish. The nail technician did not frown or scowl when I took my shoes off. Also, I do admit that my nails look great. I will not be making any more bets with my wife though.
