Well, my kids are all away for the week, so once I sent my latest story, (GRIME FAMILY, which should come out in mid-July) to my proof-reader, I was ready to celebrate! But this celebration turned into a strange experience!
After hours of typing and retyping. Banging on the backspace button and typing again, my poor fingers always deserve a little love. So that’s what I gave them earlier this week. And I threw in some loving on my toes. Even though they weren’t typing.
I went to a local manicurist for a mani/pedi. Enjoyed a massage chair, got sassy toes, and elegant nails. And as my session neared the end, another lady came in and asked for the exact same thing I had gotten. Not really odd, but it caught my attention.
She caught my attention again when I went to wash my hands. “Nothing like a little pampering, huh?”
I agreed. “And my fingers are hard workers. I’m an author.”
“I’m an author, too.” She straightened, and her mouth dropped open. “I just finished a book, and I came to celebrate with a mani/pedi.”
Of the only 2 customers in the shop, one of possibly 200 salons in the area, both were authors celebrating “The End”? How likely is that?
Crazy, but it gave me an excuse to share my business card. *Big smile!*
BTW, My celebration didn’t stop there. I also got about 4 1/2 inches whacked off of my hair. I’m feeling downright light-headed! LOL!
Your turn: How do you celebrate an accomplishment?
