Alphabe Thursday, S is for Stupid




Mrs. Matlock, I am early this time....Are you surprised? I couldn't miss the letter S and we are going camping and leaving in the morning, so here I am....I didn't even have an S post in mind until I did something really stupid...Let me share it with you...
First of all, being the girly kind of girl that I am, I get pedicures....I like polish on my toes and I love the foot massage...However things have been down and dirty around here for the last week and time got away from me...I garden barefoot, I walk outside barefoot, and I have been painting the outside of the trailer we are redoing and doing all kinds of projects...What does this mean? My feet are ugly right now....really ugly...I start to think about wearing flip flops and I freak out....I know I am going to wear them while we are camping...Unfortunately, I didn't think about it until tonight when it was too late to do anything about it...So I soaked my nasty feet and used cuticle remover and got ready for the polish...Now keep in mind that I am an artist....(kinda) I can paint and draw things I see....I do a lot of it.
Here are my toes when they get polished by a professional.....







And here are my toes on drugs........just kidding, really! This was done by me, you know, the artist?






lovely, just lovely....A big blob fell on one toenail and my pj bottoms hit it and it went everywhere...and honestly it looked a mess before that...Flexibility isn't the issue, I can reach fine...I really have no excuse and I also have no polish remover which is where the stupid comes in...I am stuck this way...I told my new husband that we would need to go to a store in the morning for polish remover and he suggested paint thinner....I think the honeymoon is over....I may wake him up at 3 am to have a serious discussion about this "Ala Jenny Matlock"..Stupid me, stupid toes....sigh....Happy Memorial Weekend everyone.........

Mumsy said...

Have a great camping trip! When you're in the wilderness, I don't think people really look at your feet anyway..so cheer up and have a good time.

Julie Harward said...

laterg8r said...

next time soak your feet in hot water and the extra paint will roll right off :D

mub said...

I have the same problem when I try to paint my own nails! It's so frustrating *L*

Viki said...

Eh, just go and have a good time. If anyone says anything just say you got a lousy pedicure from someone else LOL.

Cheryl said...

I agree with Viki 100%!

I think there's a message in that toe-art somewhere...hmmmm... Delightful S post!

Julie Schuler said...

I'm also a painter who can't paint her toenails. Why? It seems so simple.

Pondside said...

Couldn't you go camping somewhere that you'll need to wear hiking boots? Is there a way that you can keep your little toes under wraps until they've been visited by the nail polish remover?
Fun post!

Thanks for the laugh :)

Have a great time camping.

This is just one of the kinds of stories that makes me chuckle and like you even more Melinda! You are one of us after all. I hope you enjoy your trip and the next pedicure you have ~ you are a joy and a treasure! XO ~ Katie

Melinda, I was thinking about you this morning getting ready for camping.

Did I tell you I told my Dad to start looking for a little "canned ham" for me to make into a studio for the backyard? You have inspired me!

Besides, aren't you a newlywed? Isn't Don supposed to paint your nails for you? I think you should give him a try next time!

My nails looks exactly like that when I try to do them myself, too!

So I guess we are both stupid!

Have a wonderful weekend, Melinda!

Thanks for posting this happy link for us to enjoy for Alphabe-Thursday's letter "S"!

A+

Jo said...

so i now know that i am not the only who cant do toenails ... thanks goodness for the pros ... who keep our little digits looking nice & pretty & cute!!! Have a great trip!

Terra said...

I can NOT do my toes...I can do my daughters but not mine and they look bad right now (the pro one is failing me already!!)

Christy said...

LOL! I don't even try to paint my own toes. So kuddos to you for even trying!

Before I write anything let me say that it was difficult to add myself as a follower. It kept wanting me to copy an almost impossible scrambled word. It took five tries before I could follow you. I wonder if it was just me and no LOL its not my eyes. Back to toes, I've been in exactly the same situation. I've learned to use a more muted nail polish color in case I end up with just as much polish on my feet than on my toes. Thanks for sharing.

Amanda said...

At least it's way down on your feet, and not your hands! Your new hubby sounds like he's got a pretty good sense of humor-- I'd hang on to him.
