it's quite the departure from pink

I did it.

I got my nails painted black for the 1st time.

I hope I like it because my nails are fake and I am stuck with a color for 2 weeks.

I think I like it!

As I told my nail guy, "I feel edgy. And pretty badass."

Such a departure in my style that I'm glad my mother lives almost 3,000 miles away from me.

I may be 30, but I still fear my mom.

She'd look at my nails and have some blunt comments for me, for sure!

And speaking of my mom, get this conversation I had with her earlier today...


Mom: One more thing before we get off the phone.

Me: What's up?

Mom: Do you know what 'tossing the salad' means?

Me: Ummmm... In what context? **I had no clue what to say!**

Mom: In a sexual way.

Me: Yeah, I know what it means. Why?!

Mom: Because I was at work yesterday and we had a salad and a dressing and I decided that I'd just toss them together. Someone walked in and asked what I was doing and I said that I was tossing the salad. Then some younger girls asked me if I liked tossing salad. I told them that I was fine tossing the salad. Sure, I even liked tossing salad. **My mom knew that these girls were far too inquisitive about the salad and thought it was weird, but she's friends with them all so didn't think anything much of it.**

Me: **Laughing awkwardly, not knowing where this coversation's going**

Mom: So you know what this means?

Me: Yes Mom. I know what it means. You didn't?!

Mom: No, but a nurse about your age came into my office after and said that she wanted to tell me why everyone kept asking me about the salad. Then she explained the meaning to me.

Me: She explained it?

Mom: Yes. And then I went and told Anne **co-worker**.

Me: Mom, this is the weirdest conversation and I think I'm going to have to blog about it. Sorry, but it's things like this that I want to remember when you're gone one day.

Mom: Are you going to tell Bryan?

Me: Of course I'm tellin' him... But I'm still bloggin' about it too!

Mom and Me: **laughing because this is not an abnormal conversation for us to have!**

Mom: So I went home last night and asked your dad if he knew what tossing the salad meant. He didn't either, so I told him.

Me: Oh brother...

Mom: I'll never say that I like tossing salad ever again!


Bah Hahahahahaha!!!!! Dying laughing!


  1. LOVE the black nails! love love. now you are as cool as me ha!! just kidding.

    and I have to admit, I have no idea what tossing the salad means, other than tossing an actual salad. Um, what am I missing?

  2. Looks like Cali is saying, "When do I get my nails done?"
    Guess I'm not with it either - "tossing salad" - didn't have a clue!

  3. Omg I have no clue what tossing salad means either lol

  4. Oh how funny! Your mom is cracking me up :)

    Love the black nail polish! I don't think I could pull it off!

  5. Hahaha that conversation with your mom cracked me up! That's too funny!

    I love the black nails - it was a huge shock for me the first time I did mine black too, but I think it's so fun!

  6. I think this is one of the most funny stories I have ever read!!

  7. Hahaha my mama is totally the same way. She called me once during at work (which she normally only does if its important) and asked if I'd ever heard of "friends with benefits." Some younger guy she works with was talking about his, and she was HORRIFIED (my mother is a cute, traditional Southern lady). It was kind of hysterical, until she asked me if I had "ever done anything horrible like that."

  8. Okay LOVING those badass nails and hello- tossing the salad?! HAHHAHA I have no clue, can only imagine and don't want to! Sounds like me and my mom's convos too:) classic! Thanks for the giggles!~

  9. Oh my goodness this is a great story!!! For those of you who don't know what it is, I don't want to be the one to exploit it on her should google it. lol. Just a warning, I don't know what will come up but it should give you all the answers. lol.

  10. bahahahaha that is hilarious. i'm sure has some (graphic) definitions for those who don't know what it means. black nails look good, girl! -e

  11. Girls! - pls look up tossing the salad! That is SUCH a funny story and i would DIE if i my mom and i had that conversation! Though we did have a similar convo about "dingleberries" one time!

    Love the black polish! Glad you were adventurous!

  12. hahahahah.... loved the nails... and also I need to say I have NO idea what tossing the salad means... hehehe
