You can't make me.


"Oh come on. You'll like it."

"No I won't."

"It's relaxing. I promise you'll love it."

"I don't care. I won't do it."

"Awe. It's so nice though."

"Again. No. I don't know why every woman in my life wants me to get a pedicure."

I was hanging with three girls on Saturday. After lunch they decided to get their feet and hands done by a professional. They attempted to talk me into going with them, but I decided against it. The three of them seemed disappointed by my refusal to do such an activity, but I can never do it.

I'm not sure why I'm repulsed by the idea. I do engaged in things that one would consider feminine, probably more than is rational or healthy, but I will not pay to have someone soak my feet, clip toenails, and anything that I can reasonably do myself. I just won't. I have no rational explanation why I'm so opposed to the concept, but that doesn't matter. I will die a man who never had a pedicure and that's the way I like it.

I bet you'd do it if there was some other sort of satisfaction involved. Just sayin'...

Fine, I confess.. I've done it... but as always I didn't just test the waters, I got the whole mani-pedi... at some nail palace place by Hendrix's grave, in Engrish - hot toallete, green tea - the works.
Actually, I've had it done several times and I highly reccomend it.

You know, the reason the women wanted you to join them was so that they could turn you into their gayfriend.

You're a dude's dude!
Actually they massage your feet and calves, so that's hard to do to yourself, but possible.

I not totally against it, I have never done, I would just feel bad about subjecting one of those small asian women to my disgusting feet!
