Seriously people, summer is just around the corner - is already here, for those of us in southern climes.
My apologies to those still digging out the car every morning and/or stuck in 1948. Via thecuriositiesofacollegekid.blogspot.com
Us fat people deal with weird preconceptions every day, and one of the most prevalent is that we are dirty. Apparently, our personal filthiness stems from our penchant for storing fried chicken under various fat rolls, or because we tend to sweat easily and sweaty things look like they are dirty, or something.
Or maybe it's a typical 126* summer in Las Vegas, and frankly NO ONE looks clean. Via www.visualphotos.com
Making sure what does show is as presentable as possible goes a long way towards fixing this odd notion. If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times - nobody wants to look at thirsty, dirty, raggedy feet. Either hide that hobbit foot in a sneaker (preferrably a high-top) or get yourself a pedicure.
This goes double for us fatties; reaching our toes at all is a tennuous thing for some of us. Since just putting on our shoes in the morning can require yoga positions that don't technically exist yet, being able to get a really good look at our feet can slip our minds (or not seem worth it).
The need for pedicures also goes double for men. And those who wear sandles religiously. Or go barefoot a lot. And these factors stack, so don't forget to find your multiplier.
I mean it - pedicures aren't just for girly girls. A good basic pedicure will include a good deep-cleaning and scrubbing, toe-nail clipping, AND A MASSAGE from the knee down by a licensed professional who takes a good hard look at your walking-stumps and can tell you if your feet just look funny naturally or if you should really get that checked out.
I'm not saying crazy stuff can't happen during a pedi - just don't fall asleep in the massaging chair and you'll be fine. Via girlstwogo.blogspot.com
