This morning I witnessed a mother having an outdoor pedicure in her fenced-in yard. Most women enjoy being pampered, especially with in-home service, but not this gal.
And I couldn’t blame her.
Edging a bit closer, I could see she had been strapped to an odd-looking table. As I watched, metal arms dropped down to hold her tight – something like being fastened into a roller coaster – then the table tilted until the gal’s feet lifted off the ground and she lay on her side.
The mother fussed and hollered, but the pedicurist ignored her pleas.
No foot soaks or cuticle removal given in this pedicure. The pedicurist simply pulled out a grinder and went to work, shaving off excess toenail growth along with any corns and warts.
When finished, the pedicurist didn’t apply colorful polish to the mother’s toenails. He simply tilted the table until the mother once again stood on the ground and then unfastened the restraints.
Relieved to have the pedicure completed, the mother hurried away as the next gal sauntered toward the table… merely another day in the life of properly-cared-for dairy cows.
