Why brittney refused a pedicure before our trip to peru

8 Oct

Before our trip to Peru, Samantha suggested we all get pedicures. While this may have sounded like a logical idea to the average girl, to me it sounded like an embarrassment waiting to be exposed. Truth be told, my jacked up toes were not only blackened from my walk around Torrance LA, one toe was severely scabbed while the other was blatantly broken. 

What Sam and the Asian pedicurist (who are typically stereo typed to judge jank feet) did not know was the two days before my journey to Peru…. It was Oktoberfest in my home city. Oktoberfest is typically known for drunken behaviors from young adults who hated their serving jobs…. And I was no exception to that typical crowd. After heavily drinking at a bar 3 miles from my apartment, my girlfriend Renee and I agreed that a nice 2am jog home would make up for our overindulgences in corn dogs and wine. We both confidently ran away from the cab our friends had called upon, took off our heels, and began our sprint on the side of the disgusting streets filled with trash and bum pee. Though I had only stumbled 4 or 5 times, those times were enough to scrape a large chunk of skin off of one big toe and break the other. Yes, break. 

While I am not proud of my battle wounds, I am confident that I did not pick up hepatitis from the streets, that running shoes are a necessity for late Oktoberfest nights, and that Asian pedicurists would not talk shit on my jank toes today.
