I have a daughter. She’s three years old. She lends a lot of credence to this family’s cool factor so it doesn’t bother me to give in when she asks for things.
Yesterday I let her paint my toenails.
Yeah, it sounds a little ridiculous, but she asked and asked and I felt like a used car salesman was trying to get me to purchase truecoat for my car cause they use salt on the roads, dontcha know!
I wasn’t really answering so Chuck told me she’d go get the colors so I could pick them out. We ended up going with green and purple. I’m lucky a nihilist didn’t chop a toe off my left foot for a kidnapping scheme. I’m sure some of you are thinking this is a little ridiculous – a guy letting a little girl paint his toenails, but is it really that big of a deal? It’s not like it’s hard to take off, and you could tell this really made Chuck’s day. I figured since she hates getting her picture taken, but will smile to show me how much fun she was having at things where I’m stuck at home trying to breathe, the least I can do is let her put a little paint on my feet.
