i had my first pedicure a little over a month ago. i never really liked the thought of someone touching my feet or looking at my nails. i mean, they are quite disgusting. but finally i caved in and for my birthday my sister took me to get a pedicure. it was amazing!
but it's been a month and i needed another pedicure. i struggled with getting another one since i just bought a plane ticket home and honestly, have very little money in my bank account. but my nails look BAD! but there was more than just a monetary issue here for me. i have a serious moral issue with getting a pedicure. i mean, i'm paying someone to touch my feet. in "Bible times" it was a disgrace to touch people's feet and even in some cultures today feet are still a sign of disrespect. i know this is america and feet aren't disrespectful here, but most of the people doing the pedicures are not american by heritage (not to be racist or stereotypical), but it seems that maybe that is disrespectful to them. that's another thing! why is it ALWAYS the asian ladies doing people's nails??? do white ladies think they are too good?
anyway, i struggle with these things when i get my pedi....well, the two times i've gotten a pedi. i got it anyway and ended up with cute flowers on my toes, (for $8 more). i'd love to hear thoughts.
