A light snow

Apparently, this means women need to change their toes.  I didn’t know there was such a science to women's toenails.  LDB and Mari have been having an e-mail conversation about their pedicures, and they’ve been kind enough to copy me.  Apparently brown toenails are the mandatory style for fall.  I don’t get it.  It looks like they stepped in something.  Mari’s color is a deep glossy brown called “Suzi Says Da,” which I said must be short for Suzi Says Da(wg Doo Doo!).  Why brown?  I asked LDB if her toenails are white in winter and green in spring, but I got “Oh my gosh. It's red for winter and pink for spring. You're hopeless.” . . . followed by “My toes are ‘You Don't Know Jacques’ but maybe it should be ‘Cliff don't know Jacques about toenail polish.’”  Indeed.


  1. I've never quite understood the pedicure thing. I can't speak for all guys, but I never look at toes. And grooming for one's own self-enjoyment never made much sense to me either. I guess it's a Women are from Venus kind of thing.

  2. You are right BMac, it is an indulgent treat for women (or men suffering from Metrosexual behavior). If it were not for the email trail between me and LDB, Cliff might say something like "you have toenail polish on?"

  3. Mine are a la naturelle - which is fancy-speak for someone who is too lazy to do her own toenails and too busy/poor to get a pedicure. I figure I'm wearing shoes in the winter so no one sees my toes. (Except Dale and he's a non-noticer.) Nuf said...
