Avert the eyes



So this afternoon my sister and I went for manicures and pedicures.

We both sit down in the massage chairs.

The lady hands me a blue towel and places it on my lap.

Natalie didn't get one.

Only me.

Uhhh?

I'm looking around-noone else has a blue towel-only me.

Seeing I am confused the lady comes over and points to my dress.

Oh my lands alive, I've worn a sundress to get my nails done.

They gave me a towel to put over my lap because a man was doing my nails.

Help.  Me.  Rhonda.

The most modest Southern Baptist girl busted up in the nail salon and the man doing my nails had to give me a blue towel.

Things were going pretty good.  Until.  The leg massage thing they do.  I.  Have. Never.  Been.  So.  Embarrassed. 

He had to avert the eyes.

Yes mam.

I was hoping that blue towel would grow a few feet so I could wrap it around my entire person like a blue terry cloth nun outfit.

One would like to think it would be obvious that you might not want to wear a sundress, even if it does come to your knees, to get a pedicure, but juuuuuuuust in case there is another diva out their as clueless as I, let me warn you, you do not want to have the nice man having to avert the eyes.

Thank you very much and have a nice day.

Oh my word that is hilarious!!! I wish I had a camera to capture the first couple of ways you laid the towel before you figured out what it was for! A blanket? A sarong? You are a hoot! And your nails look amazing!
