Do you like yours WITH or WITHOUT crust?

You'd think I was talking about sandwiches, right?

World's Most Expensive Sandwich, the "McDonald" by Selfridges- $170. Apparently it has since been "dethroned" by another sandwich at the Cliveden in Berkshire - the “von Essen Platinum Club Sandwich” (cost:$200) a couple months ago.

Nope... Toast?

Nah... I'm talking about feet.

Royal pedicure? Toes were pampered in high-end mummifications—wrapped individually and sometimes even capped by gold sheaths to ensure they wouldn't break off. Here, the feet of the mummy thought to be Rameses I.

Last Sunday morning before church I decided to give myself a mini-pedicure. You know, because I have ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD on Sunday mornings. Not really, but I did want to paint my toenails, since I was going to do that, I figured I'd make the time to do it right.

Have you heard of the Ped Egg?
Okay, well here's a little free advertising for the Ped Egg - I have one, and it is GREAT! I don't know exactly when I got "old" and actually needed to remove callouses from my feet. I think it may have happened gradually, but regardless of when or why it happened, SOMETHING needed to be done. I like to paint my toenails and wear sandals and flip-flops in the warm weather, but there was NO WAY I was putting my piggies on display looking like they did. So I bought the Ped Egg a while back, and it really works. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't used it myself.

ANYHOO....so I broke out the Ped Egg and started removing the callouses from my heels. Puckey walked in and said, "Are you getting the crust off your feet, Mama?" I about fell over! I told her I WAS getting the crust off, and let her feel how soft my heels were when I was done. She thought it was pretty cool.

So I guess you could say I like mine WITHOUT crust, thank you very much!
However, if you also like your SANDWICHES without crust - Pampered Chef has a nifty little gadget that will do that for you....I have one of these, too. It's pretty much one of the coolest things ever.

Yeah for summer! I'll gladly remove the caluses from my feet if I get to wear flip flops (my favorite shoes of all time)!

Glad you're all beautiful now :)

You got to pamper yourself every once and a while, you know? Even if that means scraping the crust off your feet....

Where does one get a pedi egg?

love the line about having all the time in the world on Sunday mornings...

you know somone at church would've TOTALLY been distracted and perhaps missed the main point of the sermon if you hadn't got on that crust-removal. Way to think about others, Julie!

and yes, where did you find this wonderful tool?

So that crusty mummy was pretty gross, however, that sandwich looked really good.

All I could think of when I read your comment was that you wrote it just the way I imagine Frankenstein's monster would say it...Read it using your best Frankenstein voice:
