I have a confession to make...

...but it just got a whole lot easier to take!

Thanks to the back and hip troubles I've had over the last few years, I cannot yet bend over far enough to to trim my toenails. Here's the confession part: as a result, I've had to go to Wife's nail salon and pay for a pedicure every six weeks or so. My flexibility will eventually improve, but until then I'll need that assist.

Here's where it gets better.

Coming back from my LGS last week, I noticed a place in Old Town that I had forgotten about. It's called The Man Cave, and it's a place where a guy can get a haircut, hot shave, and/or nail work, along with a cigar and a drink if he so chooses. So I made an appointment for today.

What a great place! The girl that did my feet was *much* better than the, um, foreign, girls at my Wife's usual place, and their fully-stocked walk-in humidor was stocked with top-notch smokes.

I enjoyed one of these in my big, comfortable club chair while I watched the Nats-Rockies game go into extra innings, and a very nice girl worked on my feet. They don't offer coffee yet, but there's a good cafe next door where I can get a hot cup to bring in next time.

So as of today I'm in no real hurry to regain that flexibility. Not yet. :cool:

    Well, I suppose if a fella has to go through surgery and the resultant lack of mobility, he might as well do it with a cigar and a purty girl! :tooth:

    Forget the pic of the cigar ... pics of the honeys!

    Sounds good to me. Why the heck not? Women get their salons and day spas and stuff. I am not saying I would let them wax, or otherwise manscape me, but I could see going to a place like that for a nice shave and haircut. Toenails? It would probably look more like this for me...
