One of my not quite monthly indulgence is getting a pedicure. Generally I arrive at Pinky Nails with a color in mind. While my hands rarely display any color -- or professional nail care -- I am known to go wild with my toes. Sea green, Battleship Grey and a bright turquoise have been past picks. But about once a year I'm totally at sea at pedicure time. I'm confronted with dozens of bottles of polish, each prettier and more alluring than the one next to it. "Pick me," they call out in shiny and glittery chorus.
Yesterday was one of those days. I did what any social media minded person would do. I asked my friends on Facebook which color they preferred. I offered two choices -- St. Lucia Lilac and Looking for Love Blue. I received twenty plus answers, with Looking for Love definitely in the lead. The advice of my friends had some sway, but as my pedicure went on the name really captured me. I would definitely go with Looking for Love. Perhaps a pedicure can lead to love. Unlikely, but stranger things have happened.
Yes, there are blue toe nails in the picture above, but they don't show Looking for Love. They show Looking for Love and Meet the Parents. As too often in life, Looking for Love turned out to be a disappointment. The actual color was so different from the way it looked in the bottle, and I had to use a different bottle -- Meet the Parents -- to get the color I thought I was getting. Looking for Love, you turned out to be a disappointment, but one that was so easily resolved. I wish that all of life's and love's disappointments could be so easily resolved.
That's it for my life lessons of the week. Hoping that any disappointments that you may have are as easily solved.
As ever, thanks for visiting and keep cool!
