Rectum? I damn near killed him...

Had a rectal exam today...Ahhh the joys of getting older. The doctor was really nice and when I shook his hand hello (ewwww) I noticed that he had really long finger nails. Hmmm. Really?? Is that a good idea? Then I went to the pharmacy to fill a prescription and noticed that the pharmacist had even longer fingernails and they were dirty. Really dude? Come on. Where is the personal hygiene people?? The pride in appearance??

Anywhoo... I hurt my shoulder at rehearsal and now I can barely shoulder check when I'm driving or stand up straight. I'm hoping I can get in for a massage today. Eeek. I think I'm falling apart.

Ick! I feel your pain. I have a nail story I'm still traumatized by. When I was like 14 or so, my friend's cousin who was Older (& at the time I thought Cooler) took us to the mall for lunch and she proceeded to order fries and eat them by stabbing her long acrylic nails into a single fry, dipping it in ketchup and then basically sucking it off of her so-called spork-nail. I thought that was the most disgusting thing!

I am a few years behind you (pun intended) on the rectal exam, but I am hoping that the rectal technology will have developed so I can experience a virtual/cyber-rectal exam. I think it would be cool if they made it into a video game. Something about laser-blasting colon polyps. Hmm, I think I am onto something here.

OMG, fancyjane! I am laughing SO HARD at your story... Ewwwww.

So, uh... A backdoor doctor who has long fingernails, huh? Doesn't make any sense to me. I'm sure he "takes his work home with him," if you know what I mean...

Oooo, got that done last year. All was well and I'm good for another 5. Whew!
I've got a real "thing" about guys with long nails. Gives me the heebie-jeebies. Even if he is the hottest guitar player in the world; one that you would swear was heaven-sent - if he's got those long nails, EWWWW! Use a pick, man. And dirty nails? Don't even get me started there.
You know what's going to happen, don't you? Next time I'm at the drug store I'm going to be looking at the pharmacists hands and thinking of you. :o)

Speaking of long nails... what's with the goth guys that trim their nails into points? I feel like it's getting out of the real show of Gothic allegiance, shaping your teeth into fangs.

Oh and Sarah, I love the image of that weird lady. I saw a documentary about her, she's a hairdresser!
