Real men don't have pedicures

Or do they?
Now I'm a manly man, and I've got the chest hair to prove it. As we all know, manly men don't do girly stuff.
So last year, when my wife kept pestering me to come with her and have pedicures together, it was with some trepidation that I finally acquiesced.
As I entered the shop, I took a quick look about to make sure no one I knew was watching, then quickly ducked in the door.
Thankfully, we were taken to a room in the back, and not put on display in the front window as we had our treatment.
Jokes were made about what colour nail polish I would prefer, and I think the girl was a little taken aback when I only half jokingly picked one out. (Relax, I didn't get the polish.)
Anyway, she wasn't more than two minutes into the job and I was a convert. If you haven't tried this, you should.
I've been back 3 or 4 times since, and I plan to keep doing it. It's a great pampered feeling and it keeps the tootsies feeling great for a long while.

Did you get your toenails painted red?

Are you afraid of them peeking up your skirt?
I have a phobia of anybody touching my toenails so this would never happen. Ever.

I have had many pedicures. They are awesome.

My first one was when I had a really bad ingrown toenail and my Wife suggested I get one.

I've had many more since then.

I've had one. My wife is a cosmetologist and while she was going to school I let her use me for practice. I didn't like it. My feet are far too ticklish.

I'm a believer. Not sure what people's fears are, but a good pedicure is a wonderful thing.

My wife dragged me to have one last year. I've got pretty bad callouses and by the time they were done with me, my shoes felt/fit differently. I've gone back once and that experience was not as good as the first. Wouldn't mind going back.

Real men don't care what "real men" are supposed to do . Getting a pedicure is perfectly masculine if that's what floats your boat.

Well put. If you have to tell people you're a real man, then....

Depends on if you can still reach your Feet.. and the Dibetes even lets you feel them.



Had a need of a Chiropodist, a few years back , a toenail fragment from a DIY clipping

dug in and made itself known, ,so I was happy when after my chair gripping grimace subsided
it was gone .. the nail ingrows so I'm more careful now ..

the mill bastard file rather than the pliers.

I've had a couple of very good ones before, but also some not so good. I'm kind of a clean freak so I'm always worried that they don't clean the equipment well. However, I'd never turn one down.
