So, the seventh grader and I had our feet nibbled by fish.
It was totally cool.
At first it tickled and then it felt a little bit tingly, like when your feet fall asleep. The fifteen minutes flew by as we watched the fish swim and swarm around our feet. The fourth grader didn’t want to try it, but after watching us for a few minutes she did put her hand in. She and I both noticed how much softer her hand was after only a couple of minutes with the fish. She was won over immediately, so I guess I’ll be paying for three fish pedicures next time.
After the fish, it was a standard pedicure though it should be noted that any pedicure is outside my normal range of pampering. (Oh! I would have finally had something amazing for Robin Brande’s Be Nice to Yourself Fridays.) Seventh grader went with sparkly blue polish, and I chose a subtle pink. Fourth grader got her fingernails painted purple.
Our feet feel softer, our nails look prettier, and we can’t wait to do it again. Want to come along?
(OMG! If you click on the picture above it is huge. Man, you can really see the fish! And perhaps I should have shaved.)
