#100HappyDays: Day 17
Getting a Pedicure

I'm not what one would consider a "girly girl" by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, my mother gets alarmed every time I wear a dress.

The other day, I got a pedicure with a wonderful girlfriend of mine, and I wore a knee-length dress just to make the process easier.* After I got home, MomLady greeted me at the door, and her mouth dropped.

"You look like a girl!!" she exclaimed.

"Good thing, being that I am one."

That being said, I do enjoy pampering myself every once in a while, and pedicures are my way of doing that. Granted, I don't get them frequently, but my poorly treated feet rather relish being cared for, even if it's once every few months.

*Seriously, wearing pants or a long dress after a pedicure is tantamount to disaster. Just don't do it, ok? You have been warned.

"Purple Things"

Exercise #28: "Purple Things"
What things are purple? Make a list.

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:

Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
