Whenever Laura and I spend time together we gravitate to a Nail Salon whether it be in Austin over her Spring Break, in Spokane in late May, or yesterday in Seattle while she was home. This is an outing we enjoy together although what we do there is vastly different. I indulge in a pedicure; she has her nails (taken off and replaced) done.
I typically pay little attention to what's happening over at the manicure table choosing to concentrate on the latest (often raunchy) celebrity news in People Magazine or Us. I love dipping into this stuff when I'm pampering myself; adds to the feeling of escape and somehow the two go together nicely. Yesterday I finished up 30 minutes before she was done and instead of burying my head in another Hollywood story, I took a look at what was going on at the manicure table.
For now, I'll stick to pedicures. Although I was sorely tempted to pick the Shrek inspired yellow-green for my own version of wild and "out there", I picked a summer inspired pinkish orange. Ramp up the wild, Kate. OK....next time. I promise.
