Let me tell ya'll a true story that happened to me last year when I was getting a pedicure. My favorite color to wear is Cajun Shrimp by Opi. I ALWAYS wear that color beginning in the spring and throughout the summer. Sometimes I go wild and try something new but I always come back to Cajun Shrimp. When I got to the salon, I could not find my polish and asked the owner if she was out. A lady sitting near the front over heard me asking about the polish color and held up her little bottle saying, here, I've got what you're looking for but it's not Cajun Shrimp, it's Peel Here. (The bottles have a number on them and the bottle she was holding had the Cajun Shrimp number on it). Since she was not ready for her pedicure she gave me the bottle and told me to go ahead and use it and she'd get it from me later during her pedicure. I thanked her and went back to get my pedicure with my bottle of Cajun Shrimp clutched tightly in my little fist. When the lady came to get her pedicure, she sat next to me. (I had already looked on the bottom of the bottle to be ab-so-loute-ly certain that it WAS Cajun Shrimp and of course, it was). I thanked her for letting me use the polish ahead of her and she told me this: "My mother discovered this polish color last summer and we've been using it ever since....we love Peel Here!" I told her that I'd always known it as Cajun Shrimp and the number on the bottle was the number the salon used to identify it as Cajun Shrimp. The nail technician turned over the bottle and said "Lady, this is Cajun Shrimp!" At that point, my friend turned over the bottle, turned beet red and said, "Oh, my gosh, my mom saw the little sticker on the bottom of the polish that says 'peel here' (you remove that sticker to reveal the polish color) and we've been calling it peel here! I'm soooo embarrassed!" Well, let me tell ya'll, the whole place just died laughing. Thankfully the woman had a great sense of humor, cause she laughed too. I remember that story every time I use Cajun Shrimp a/k/a peel here!
This coming Thursday I'm going to the beach for 4 days of fun and sun! My daughter, her daughter Taylor (almost 4), my DIL Jennifer, her daughter McKinley (almost 3), my sister and her daughter (2 months pregnant) are heading to Panama City Beach, Florida!! I'm hoping the weather stays as nice as it's been the past few days. This will be one interesting trip, let me tell ya!
Ya'll have a great week!
