I can’t, officially, tell yet but I’m sure it’ll start being noticeable really, really soon.
It’s been hard work making my waist smaller...
And I owe it all to itchy ankles.
Really, really itchy ankles.
I’ve had itchy ankles before. In fact, I think I could be diagnosed with IAS if I could just find the right specialist. And find some kind of reason to seek a diagnosis.
Now I have to scratch my ankle with my fingers it’s turning into a big problem.
There’s an awful lot of bending and stretching in my life that, quite frankly, is exhausting.
And all the bending and stretching is because of this..
A while back a sweet friend of mine and I were having one of those ‘Infomercial’ conversations...”Have you tried this new product? Have you tried that?” and in the midst of our exotic, middle-aged house-wifey conversation the subject of dry heels came up.
Why? I have no idea. But it did.
And we talked about dry heels for awhile. Yeah. We both live an exotic life. Big time. My friend told me about this:
...but I scoffed.
I’d tried all the dry heel stuff before...crisco, olive oil soaks, this lotion, udder cream, that lotion...and nothing worked.
I forgot all about the ‘Infomercial’ conversation until about a week later when a small box arrived in the mail containing a tube of this highly recommended cream.
So I tried it.
For three days and three nights like the label said.
Every morning and every night after I applied it, I would rub my heels against Mr. Jenny. “Ouch! Geez, take a sander to those heels!” he would yell. He’s kind of a baby about stuff like pain.
But on the third night he said, “Hey, do that again...”
And when I did he said, “I can tell that stuff is working. Your heels hardly hurt me at all.”
The change after a few more days was miraculous.
And when I went to get a pedicure a week or so after I began using the lotion, the nail tech got all excited.
I always go to the same nail place and the girl always gets out the industrial strength de-callouser when I walk in the door.
This time, though, she started my pedicure and stopped.
She called the other nail tech over.
The chattered away using a bunch of words that sounded like ‘ing’ and ‘oy’.
After a few minutes of this indecipherable conversation, the nail tech said to me, “What you do? What you do to heel?”
She chattered away again and then repeated the question.
“It’s this lotion that my friend sent to me. It’s called Flexitol and it really works!”
She got excited. She asked me where she could buy it. She asked me if it was expensive. She told me, “I no think this your feet! It not hurt me when I touch!”
Apparently that is a pretty funny joke in a nail salon. There was a lot of laughter and chatter after that loud announcement.
The point of this story is that...
Okay. Well, it’s really not a story but...
The point of this post is that we’re friends, right?
And friends have strange,’ Infomercial’ conversations sometimes.
And this is one of those times.
If your heels are like this...
Then you might want to try this.
But be prepared for your waist getting smaller.
I can no longer find relief from an itchy ankle or calf by rubbing my heels over the spot.
Now I have to do all kinds of bending and stretching to reach allllll the way
to my ankles...
Mr. Jenny is one lucky, lucky guy...a wife with sexy, smooth, painless heels AND now a slimmer waistline?
If he could just figure out a way to keep my blabbering on and on and on about nothing (I know, it’s hard to believe that might happen with me, isn’t it?) I bet he would be a happy, happy man.
