Have you ever taken a look at one of the nail notes or lists you write to yourself and thought about how it would look to someone that did not do nails? Just take one company that named their polishes after bond girls...one polish name would definitely look odd to an outsider written down anywhere or especially requested out loud in the salon by a young girl! Another company has a line of intimates with names like Bare Chemise and Blush Teddy, which could set some gossipy tongues wagging if seen on a list by themselves! Pam from Ohio recently ran into something like this with her husband. I think you'll find some humor in her shared story!
"Today my husband went into my purse to get some money for the football game. He came back with a post-it note he found in my purse and a really strange look on his face. I asked what was wrong. He looked at the post-it note and asked why I'm going to get Strawberry Smoothie and a Negligee. He asked what Rubble was and who Ed Mills is. (There were directions scribbled on how to get to Ed Mills' house.) Sigh...the first three are Shellac nail polishes to pick up from Beauty Supply and Ed Mills is my gunsmith; I needed a pistol repaired! Sheesh. He's so paranoid! I don't think I'm out of the woods yet on this one... it does seem like a weird list, even to me! lol."
Looks like we may need to write nail stuff or something at the top of our lists just to keep life on an even keel and ourselves out of the dog house!
