It seems America can't get enough pampering. A simple pedicure just doesn't cut it anymore. Nope. No amount of foot rubbing, sloughing off, creamy gunk between your toes, or abrasive toenail filing can beat the feel of hundreds of fish eating the dead skin off your feet.
What, you think I'm kidding?!
First, Bossman sent me the website where he's sending his wife for her birthday tomorrow.
So I checked it out. And found this.
THOSE ARE FISH IN THAT WATER, EATING DEAD SKIN. (notice only children will do this long enough to have their photo taken)
NO I AM NOT KIDDING. SEE FOR YOURSELF....http://www.yvonnesalon.com// (hmmm looks suspiciously like another tender child's foot in there....)
Then our Loyal Assistant noticed this article on CNN.
Yep for a mere $35 for 15 minutes or $50 for 30 minutes, you can sit with your feet in a tank full of fish and have them nibble off your dead skin. It seems they don't have teeth, so they don't "bite you."
One woman claims, ""It's a little ticklish, actually." Uh-huh.
At least you no longer share a tank with other people, only to be embarrassed when the fish swarm your feet for your plethora of dead skin while leaving untouched that gorgeously svelte young girl next to you, with her perfect teeth and perfect skin and perfect hair who apparently has no dead skin for the poor starving fish to eat so they will gorge on your calloused tootsies. Yeah the Health Department declared that unsanitary. One old, smelly, scaley, calloused pair of feet per tank, please, with fresh water for every customer. Because who wants to stick their feet into a pool of dirty fish water anyway - puh-lease I need clean fish water!?
