I got a pedicure today and I had the most delightful thing happen – and it had nothing to do with my feet. I’ll remember it far after the polish wears off and the calluses return.
As I was browsing through the pedicure options, imagine my surprise/delight when one of the options was “cucumber hell.” What?? This prompted so many questions and even more giggles. I really didn’t even know what it meant .. peal? heal? I told several friends and we decided that cucumbers really shouldn’t be feared.
I’m a avid traveler and I understand the challenges of a language barrier. I have been the victim of a translation gaffe myself — when we were in Puerto Rico, I thoroughly embarrassed my daughter when I mispronounced the name of a beach — thus calling it “ass beach.” Yup, she could not have been more proud.
But Spring is here and I can’t think of anything more delightful than going through cucumber hell and then spending a few days on ass beach. Sign me up.
