Murphys Law is a bugga!!
Like I don't take squash shoes to squash one time.. Like the only time (cos they don't do shoe checks..) And that was the only time they checked!!

And like.. We do P.E (Physical Education) and we don't usually swim, but they ask us to bring swimming clothes just instead. And we hardly ever swim, so I didn't take it like one day, and the only day I don't take it, they decide to swim!! Gwrr

why not do one hand at a time? Then you will have a free hand.

or you could just rub up against something.

I can only do one hand at a time.  LOL...I'm just teasin ya....I know what you mean....I don't have the patience to wait for one hand to dry and then do the other and have to wait for it to dry too.

I tried rubbing up against something....my husband walked in on me and thought I was having a spasmodic episode!  Do you think he offered to scratch my back?  NO!!!

Same thing happens to me when I'm applying lipstick......soon after I always have the need to lick some envelopes and usually end up with lipstick on it !

Thank you JNA.  I'm preparing myself to re-paint them tonight.....Hubby is useless at scratching my itches, but I have my ruler, my letter opener and my back scratcher right next to me.  I'm already starting to itch!

You know what would be nice... to have place where you could go  and they would do your nails and toes.. then... give you a killer back scratching...OOOOOH man.. what I would give to have my back scratched........ OH MY GAWWWWWWWWD pure and simple lovely glorious back scratching that starts at the top and works its way down in long crosswise strokes not too hard just right.. and the back of my legs.... OH my....... I would be in pure heaven!!!! LOL! YES! YES!! YES!!!emmmmmmmmmmm oh my... wouldn't that be way nice!!! LOL... I wonder why that feels so good....I always have that same itch after my nails are done.. but fake nails stink as they don't scratch right.. the sense of glorious satisfaction is not there! but with real nails.. it feels different! I wonder if its the sensation of having anothers hand touching your skin combined with the relief or if Its all in my head.. It never feels so nice when I try to scratch my own itch!

Funny you should mention that.  I'm leaving for Georgia this afternoon and I will be treating my Mommy and my self to pedicures.  It is one of my most favorite treats.  I love the massage chairs they have and just being able to sit and relax and chat while someone else pampers us!

I agree....I HATE fake nails.  I used to spend a small fortune on them, but they damage your nails so much!  I occasionally get manicures now, but not often.  I usually just wear clear polish, but when I want color I just do them myself because I HATE...I mean I DESPISE chipped polish, or being able to see the natural nail at all so I have to do a new coat every night as long as I have them painted.  I'd go bankrupt if I had to rely on someone else to keep up with my nail polish. :D

I rarely wear it.. but on special occasions I like to.  My Natural nails are long.. normally.. I broke two the day before yesterday and they bled like crazy.. I picked up a wet slippery board in the yard and my hand slipped and busted two of them off below the quick .. hurt so bad.. bled for quite awhile...They are still very tender and sore today... but getting better.

I hope you have fun.. I have never had a pedicure done in a shop... I have however done my own at home with all the amenities!
