Men Can Walk On Air TOO!

Posted by becky on March 31, 2011 in To Make You Smile |

Yesterday was my “treat yourself Tuesday”. I treated myself to a manicure and pedicure. This is an expense I shall afford even if I have to live on Ramen Noodles and drink water 3 meals a day!

I had a appointment the first one that morning. I opened the door to a nail world all its own in a small shop here in Northwest Georgia. Lights are turned on, seat is pulled out and I sit {ready for the vacation}. As the water fills the basin, warm {almost hot} just the way I like it, the chair is adjusted and the massage begins.

I am on a journey to the “Land of Relaxation”.  I close my eyes, breath deep, losing myself in the moment as I clear my head I am taken to my own stress-free island get-a-way.

Shortly thereafter a gentleman enters, appearing to

be in his 70s he requests a partial pedicure. He is worked in between scheduled appointments and leaves a short time later with a smile and pampered feet. Sometime later a man in his 60s arrives for his “scheduled” pedicure appointment.  He explains {like he thinks I need an explanation, I already appreciate this treat} that he has been doing this for 4 months and loves it. He talks of his golfing friends calling him a “sissy” and now they too are visiting the nail salon on a regular basis {he says with smile}.

Just as I am finishing up the door chimes as the next customer enters the building. A man in his 50’s announcing he is there to get his “feet done”. The conversation between the two men ensues as they explain to each other how they began this once-feminine journey. The stories are simple and each told with a smile.

One guy says, “I have wasted money on a lot of things in the past and I don’t consider this a waste.” {You hear that ladies, a fact we already knew, forget the oil change in the car, I gotta get my nails done}. The other says, “When you leave its like you are walking on air”. They concur, the best thing they ever done {getting their toes done}.

Okay, do you get it? I am in the nail salon almost 2 hours on a Tuesday morning and three out four were men getting pedicures! Yeah, this could start trend. The guys are coming to let a man do the feet. Imagine if it were beautiful women lathering their feet? I bet there would be a line outside the door! No really, it is a great thing that men are overcoming the stigma that these luxuries are for the women and to participate in such makes them less of man. I don’t know about you but, I much rather have a man with feet as soft as a baby’s butt verses the feeling that you think he has stepped on sticky sandpaper! I think we all agree on this one ladies!

So, you men out there, take off your tool belts, loosen your boot straps, pack your flip flops in your tool box ’cause your gonna love it! Many men and even my son will not set foot in a nail salon, even to visit. But, you let them spend one day on the island and see if they don’t enroll in the frequent flyer miles program.

Love ya,
xoxo

    If you like the pedicure try an hour long foot massage. Joey bought me one and I was disappointed until I actually went and got it. I love full body deep tissue massages but the foot massage put me to sleep.
