Good For Small Spaces

Today I got a manicure in New York City from a Romanian woman named Maria who gave me what is quite possibly the most bizarre compliment I've ever received.

"Oh, Cheasty," she said, in a thick Romanian accent. "You have such nice hands, small hands. Such beautiful hands." She paused to turn them slightly, examining them from every angle, and then nodded firmly as if she had just reached a decision of great import.

"Yes," she said. "You should be a gynecologist."

Laughing uncontrollably!!

That reminds me of the time my friend had a brazilian bikini waxing right before she got married. She didn't realize that the brazilian meant that EVERYTHING goes, so she was a little shocked. After all was said and done, the lady who did the waxing, Olga, said in her Russian accent, "There, now you look like 12 year old girl." EWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!

Hey! You're in TEXAS?!

Also, LMAO. That is either the best compliment or worst insult EVER.

And? Kate? Hilarious!

My gynecologist for 2 out of 4 kids told me I was too fat to feel my uterus. In her face! I got down to a 4 after that baby (not so much after this last one - I think I've gained weight). Besides, she looks like Alan Alda. Not pretty on a lady.

Cheasty said...

mala, NO WAY!! :)

renny, i think you should consider joining me in this new career path. we can call it "tiny hands OBGYN." i think it might go over well!

I guess if history doesn't work out for you... you and your small hands can either build model ships and put them into bottles OR be a obgyn. Pretty much the same thing I guess. Cheers to new careers!

GAH! "Thank you, I... think."


Cheasty said...

cookie - i think the ships-in-bottles will be my retirement project. for now, i'll make millions as the Small Handed Gynie!

bev - I KNOW, what on earth do you even say to a comment like that?!
