Tropical Pink


Sometimes, there's nothing for it except Tropical Pink. And a vicious beating by the pedi guy.

My Vietnamese is poor, his English, similar.

I have tried to explain about my double foot surgeries, but he really likes to beat my legs and insteps into a pulp. Not sure why, except maybe he once attended massage therapy school and likes to use what he knows on legs and feet.

"That hurts," I say.

"Sorry!" he replies, then repeats the entire bang/slap/grind on the other limb.

"That's kind of hard," I remind him.

"I forgot," he says. "Sorry!"

Sadly, I've had this conversation with him more than once.

I know, I know.

But the prices are reasonable.

And my toes are polished and ready for those Uggs, more's the pity.

Too bad they don't make peep toe Uggs. Those toes are too gorgeous to hide! It might have been painful, but the result is stunning.

A lot of pain, but definitely gain! Your toes are a pretty pink.

Hello.
I have a foot fetish for my wife's feet (smile). She always paints them herself. Your toes look nice. I hope the Uggs appreciate the lengths you had to go though to get them looking like that! LOL
Thanks for sharing.
