Let me clarify fingernails

You know that Scholastic Book Fair video of mine?

Well, I was watching it (again..... yeah, yeah, I know....) and I was noticing that part where some gal's hand comes up holding money....

I just want to clarify...for the record....THAT IS NOT MY HAND, PEOPLE!

Those nails!


I am 58 years old.

I have never....in all my 58 years....had a manicure.

I will never have a manicure.

I could care less about fingernails.

I like to garden.

I never wear gardening gloves.

I LIKE the feel of dirt.

I often have dirt under my fingernails.

I just wanted to clarify that so I don't disappoint anyone if they ever meet me in person and expect that I have those nice fingernails.

O-M-G! I watched and then watched again thinking... what nails? I'm looking for some long, luxurious, bright red nails...
Those ain't nothing...
You're funny though with your earthy nails. Gotta Love it.

Thanks, from a woman who is waiting for the paint chip wedged under her right pinky nail to grow out.

My nails tend to get inky.

I tried to grow them long once, but the excess length messed up my typing. My nails kept catching the wrong keys.

Wait. You're (gulp) FIFTY-EIGHT? No way. No way. Don't get struck by lightning, Barbara.

P.S. How is Phoebe?

Barbara O'Connor said...

Yep...58 and counting!

Phoebe is doing so much better - but we're still waiting to see the prognosis. Thanks so much for asking.
