My response to Charli Mills, Carrot Ranch .99 word Flash Fiction challenge this week. We had to talk about paint in some form or fashion. Be sure to follow Carrot Ranch to be apprised of future challenges! https://carrotranch.com
Yes, this is a true story and why I kept going back for bi-weekly torture for over a decade is beyond me!
I had never had my nails done professionally. But since I was now a female business executive, who did a lot of public speaking, it was suggested that I spruce up the ends of my fingers.
The nail tech was chatty and did a great job! We chose a bright shade of deep pink polish and everything was perfect.
She admonished me to use the side of my finger to open my car door, lest I break the new nails.
Sheepishly, I walked back into the salon a few minutes later. Smiling, she said, “I’ve been waiting for you.”
