Every now and then I like to pamper myself. I mean…why not? Who doesn’t need to give them self a little tlc
every once-in-a-while huh?
Well right up there with a good massage, I love a professional pedicure.
Ooh yes! The warm foot soak in scented potions like pineapple sunrise, jasmine and what-have-you.
I love the scrubs, exfoliates, lotions and the joy of choosing your polish colour from that lovely carousel of rainbow hues!
Here’s the rub; (Ahhh! See what I did there?) I am ticklish! Like, oh-my-God-stop-or-I’m-either-going-to-pee-or-punch-you-type-ticklish! It’s just ridiculous and I wish I could make myself less so. I have a few ticklish spots which I’m not going to mention but my feet are right up there second on the list.
I didn’t even realise I was THAT ticklish with my feet until my first professional pedicure many years ago. That lady had the patience of a saint because I had not yet learned how to manage my reactions to a level whereby it was a productive session. Let me tell you, there was water flicked every where and squeals and my chair handles were gripped to DEATH!!
I’d like to think I’ve come a long way since then…in reality, just a tad. Now, I give the pedicurist a heads up before they begin and let them know how to handle certain parts of my feet. I also make sure no drinks are imbibed and I have a magazine or a fully charged phone to “distract” me.
I still bite my lip and grip the handles but I remain in my seat and have not kicked any pedicurists or created any soapy messes around my station. I’m calling that a success.
When your feet are all nice and smooth with pretty polish, that’s what it’s all about at the end of the day. No pain, no gain right? 🙂
How do you pamper yourself? 🙂 ❤ CN
