There's nothing wrong with killing two birds with one stone, so I thought I'd have my eyebrows done while I was waiting.
Asian Technician: "She won pedicure, too?"
Me: Smiling. "No thanks. Just the mani." We still need enough $$ to give her some presents.
She gave a little sniff and raised her eyebrow as she looked at my daughter's toes. That just happened to be the handiwork of a 10 year old in a rainbow of pinks and blues.
Turning to my other daughter she said, "You won manicure like sister?"
Who wouldn't? I mean she was in the middle of giving her a full arm massage with hot stones, for goodness sake. We were all drooling. I think my 6 year old son would have said yes at that point. Fortunately I had already prepped daughter #2 about this being a birthday gift. So she politely declined.
Since my other two children were completely mesmerized by the whole color-on-the-nail thing, I left them to
gawk watch their older sister enjoy her birthday treat. I was taken back to the operating waxing room by another woman with broken English.
Her:"You won browd?"
Me: What? Oh, yes, my brow. Realizing that the need to confirm a brow wax as opposed to a bikini wax was of the essence.
Her: All dose your kids?
Me: Yes, yes they are.
Her: How many? Fowa?
Me: No, just three.
Her: You hab good body.
Her: You hab good body to hab sree kids.
Me: Thank you! I'll take every service you offer,well except the Brazilian, and double the tip.
Her: You jus stay home all day wis dem?
Me: There went your doubled tip, lady.
