Wikipedia calls it “a superficial cosmetic treatment of the feet and toenails.”
I call it “pretty toes.”
My favorite part?
The foot massage.
And the pretty toes.
Whatever you want to call it, a pedicure is a great thing to do on a hot day. A wondrous thing. And know what? I’m not the only one who thinks that. According to Wikipedia (one of my sources for fun facts) people have been pedicuring for over 4000 years. Are you boggled? I am. That’s like 2300BC or some year long ago. Many, many, many pretty toes over the centuries.
So in the longstanding tradition of superficial cosmetic treatments of the feet, my friend, Anni (you know who she is, by now) and I decided to pedicure Saturday morning.
Here’s a pictoral essay.
I know, I know…but we can’t be pithy all the time. Every now and again it’s good to throw in a little randomness.
Okay, these PediChairs were amazing. I wanted to take one home. They’ve got a little foot bath in them with light therapy. I wonder if the Pharaohs had light therapy in their PediThrones. Obviously, they wouldn’t have chairs. They’d have thrones. PediThrones. I don’t even know it that’s a word. I don’t even know if PediChair is a word. It should be if it’s not.
Anyway, these amazing PediThrones/Chairs had massaging devices in them. I swear they were hands in there. While the magic hands are kneading out all the back kinks, the technician is cleaning, clipping, massaging and smoothing your feet. No wonder this has been going on for eons. It’s heaven.
Anni selected orange.
And are we refreshed?
Have a great week, Peeps! Go treat yourself to a pedicure. Men can have them, too. Make sure they’ve got those magic PediChairs/Thrones/Chairs, the kind with the built in hands.

What a brilliantly humorous essay on pedicures. A wonderful start for my Sunday morning. Sorry – no time for further comments. I must leave in search of my own PediThrone.
Go! Go! Please don’t let me hold you back from such a worthy quest.
