Manic-cure

This weekend I decided to bite the bullet and get my ragged nails taken care of. Here's the exchange when I showed up to my neighbourhood beauty parlour:

Me: Hi, I was wondering if I could get an appointment for this afternoon.

Receptionist: Sure ... *looks at her computer for an opening, then looks back up at me* For an eyebrow wax?


Heh... Normally I would have saved us both the embarrassment and been like, "Yes. Also a manicure" but I hadn't done my mental preparation exercises that usually accompany any ripping-of-hair-out-my-skin event. So it was just the mani with a side of awkwardness:
Rest assured, I don't have jaundice - it's just the weird lighting. I can't, however, explain how my thumb suddenly became obese for this picture.

Now THAT is Funny!

Don't take that crap from anybody. Your eyebrow looks fine.

Haha, why is it they always ask if you want your eyebrows waxed??? I get that too. Are my eyebrows that bad? I didn't think so.

I found your blog through that fun Google search game. I'm a Jen (one "n") too, and I also strongly dislike when people spell my shortened name "Jenn."

Looking forward to following your blog!

I have no shame

Need words? I'm a Toronto-based freelance writer who injects great ones into blogs, websites, magazines, ads and more. So many services, one lovely Jen (with one 'n').
