It’s already been a week since I last posted. Man, time is moving fast this holiday season. My wife’s dad and his wife have already left town. They arrived in Seattle last Thursday. The following day we took the plunge and bought a brand new Toyota Prius. Next thing I knew it was Christmas morning and I had some last minute wrapping to complete.
Being the stickler I am, I don’t want to give too much away though since I can stretch out the blog posts. What’s important with this entry is what happened today. On Wednesday December 26th, I did something I’ve never done before in my life. I know you’re all now very curious what Monkey Boy could have done for the first time. You might be wondering if I went skiing naked, smiled at a HUMMER, kissed a boy, or played a game of chess. If you guessed any of those, you’d be dead wrong.
Here’s a hint for those who enjoy visual aids:
Yep, I got a pedicure. Or as some like to say, I got me a “pedi”. My wife bought it for her stepmom, but we screwed up on their departure date and none of my wife’s friends were available for a little spa time. Not one to shy away from an opportunity to try something new, my wife offered the spot to me.
I thought about it long and hard… and took the plunge. I have to be honest and mulled over how it would be tremendous blogging material. “Honey, this will be great for the blog” I exclaimed to my wife. She nodded in agreement. Looking back on the experience, it wasn’t such a shocker for a guy to get a pedicure. I’m guessing you don’t see many men getting pedicures, but maybe it should happen. The pampering of the feet is worthwhile for all. I say pedicures for women and men! The wax dip part was a wicked sensation. I also got the chance to show off my pop culture infinite wisdom. The woman who did my feet attended the rival high school of mine. I made her feel very unimportant when I reminded her the American Idol runner-up attended my high school and not hers. In the end she won my heart… one cuticle at a time.
The holidays were a hoot, yet we’re bummed the in-laws are gone. We had a great time showing off Anna for the first time in person. We think grandpa will convince his wife to move to the West Coast to be closer to his granddaughter within a couple years. Only time will tell. Granddad is great… and… and … he’s an equal opportunity spoiler. I hope you all had a pleasant Christmas and I look forward to putting my blog reading cap on again. [end disjointed entry]
