I Am A Liar and A Cheat




I Never thought I would ever do this. I make commitments and keep them. I take my integrity very seriously. I have trouble with people who cheat and are dishonest. A promise is a promise. It may not be easy to keep...but, hell - who said it was going to be easy?


But today - I succumbed to pressures of the outside world. For some people, cheating is like eating. They do it every day to survive. One binge covers up another. And so on and so on...until you are not sure where the line between right and wrong intersect.


The temptation was too much for me to handle. Maybe it was the carnival glass hand bowls and the promise of a 10 minute foot massage. Maybe it was the exotic and intoxicating aroma eminating from your premises.


I did it. I went to a new nail person. And....Anthony (or An as you were born) it was fabulous!


And it was my first time too... with a man . He was gentle and really listened - the way a first time should be. Man- if you could make pasta the way you swing that little brush - I might be tempted to leave my Hubby for you forever.


Sorry Kathy (or Xoi, or Lyn - or whatever Anglo name you are using this month). I hope you don't read my blog. I am sure you don't , because I have been following you around for 3 years and you still don't know that I am a picky little fake nail wearing Ho.
Anthony had me at 'hi lady'.

My nail lady left me to move to Las Vegas, and I have had such a hard time finding someone to replace her. *Tear*

Where is this Anthony, and do you suppose he'd commute to Montana every two weeks?

Your nails look great! I know what you mean, though, I used another hairdresser, and instead of telling her, I lied and said Im letting my hair grow out. im bad too!

Cristin said...

I love it!! Your nails look fab!

Finding a good nail tech is hard to find! Nails look good. I just wish i could get my nails done like i used to but being an OR nurse doesn't allow it. Oh well, i'll live vicariously through you!

Insane Mama said...

OMG! Too funny. What if Lyn sees the blog???

Fannie Mae said...

I love the gal that does my nails and have kept her for years. I have, however, been known to have a hair affair. ;)

Kat said...

That is so funny. I was going to the same nail person for a while - even though I didn't like her. And she talked on the phone the entire time she did my nails. I felt guilty about leaving. But finally I did it. And it was soooo awkward when I ran into her at a science camp that both our kids were in.

TOO FUNNY...I don't even get my nails done but that still made me laugh!

Stacy said...

Ya know....An was talking about you the second you left...maybe even when you were there! He was laughing about you too....and about your wo-forgotten old nail-girl.
I stopped going to my colorist because i found someone who did the same job for 1/3the money! I dread the day I run into the old color girl. I actually avoid the Publix next to that old salon.

But I admit, I cheat on my new girl...with a box...yes, I do a home root job in between coloring. She dosnt get mad, and even jokes about the bad job I do!

Just sayin HI...I got nothing for this one.

The Long and the Short of it said...

I LOVE it! I have avoided cutting my hair for 3 months now, because I can't face the guilt of finding a new stylist.

Jennifer said...

I cheated on my hair lady and I still feel a little guilty!

Your nails look great!

Robin said...

Hey, I'm back..finally! Feel like I haven't been to your blog in ages.

I have a nail guy too and I LOVE HIM. I'll never go back to a girl. He even called me yesterday to wish me a happy birthday! Seriously!

DYSFUNCTIONAL MOM said...

I went to a new nail girl today, and I am in LOVE. She is totally my new BFF, and through talking we found out that our daughters are good friends!
It was a good nail day.

N-i-i-i-i-c-c-c-c-e-e-e-e!

Tiffany said...

You are so freakin' funny. I went to a man recently... not so good. He was very distracted bossing all the chicks around.

Reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where Jerry cheats on his barber...

Lula! said...

I laughed at this...back when I had my nails done (as in pre-marriage when I had all the me time in the world!) I went to a guy named Pat. That wasn't his Vietnamese name...it's just what he told everyone to call him. Pat was rock star famous in the town that I lived in back then. And whenever I walked through the doors, he'd call out, "'ello, Leeee Ahhhnnnn...I do for you today?" Yes, Pat...you do for me today. Because you are the best.

He was better than any woman, I tell you.

You are not a liar and a cheat--you just want what you want, and that's fine and dandy!

The Nice One said...

Those look good. I've never had a mani. OR a pedi. But I am thinking I may try it out....

Romi said...

Your nails look great! I cheated on my nail lady in the same salon but on a day she didn't work. She just so happened to pick up an extra shift that day. Talk about awkward. I like to torture myself like that!

Hi, visiting from SITS. I love this post! So funny! If, I wasn't the wife of a law student, living on loans I'd totally be a fake nail ho too, but I don't think they accept food stamps as payment. =)

3 weeks ago my nail lady told me her owners wanted her to be KIM, ok so kim it is. When I called for my appt this week she told me "she no longer Kim, now she Ann" I cant imagine changing names so often!

Colleen said...

sassy stephanie said...
