A couple of weekends ago a coupon came in the mail for an inexpensive
manicure ($9.00). I thought that will be fun, I have never had one before.
It lasted till my first class the next day. Nail polish and teaching art
don't mix... I felt like I had "grown up" hands for a few hours though.
It was fun.
