Oh, what a glorious day it was today! Today was spa day which should translate into a pampering/relaxing of some sort. Or at least it, technically, should have been—or so I thought.
First up, the Eyebrow Wax:
After the 15-minute drive to get there, it took all of 10 minutes to rip ’em off—but ouch, ouch, and OUCH! So much for that ‘pampering’ session.
Next up, Hair:
First off, I had to drive to a totally different location 30 minutes south away from the girl that does my brows. Driving a country mile to this location is what was unpleasant, but once I was there the experience was rather relaxing.
Third up, Nails:
Yep, I had to drive to yet another location for this experience—30 minutes north away from the guy that does my hair.
But no one should be at an in-and-out nail salon almost 2 1/2 hours! Yeah, they were super busy but part of my waiting was due to a lady who had her crying one-month old infant with her while trying to get her nails done. It didn’t work out for anyone involved—the nail technician, the lady, her baby, or me!
The particular person that I love doing my nails just happened to be tending to this woman. Go figure. The lady opted to wait 5 minutes to see if she could get the baby to stop crying. Finally she put him back in his carrier and went back to her nails.
Five minutes into it, the poor baby starts wailing again. (translation: she has to pick him up—with her hands which are where her NAILS ARE!)
So, if you have nothing else to do today, schedule yourself a fabulous spa appointment—one that won’t actually hurt you, cause you to practically drive out-of-town, or has a wailing baby.
