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?
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!
