Wafer thin nails

TOP del.icio.us

This morning I heard a woman shout

I’ve broken a nail, can I come in?

Luckily she wasn’t hollering through our window because I wouldn’t have known what to do with her except offer her a strong cup of tea maybe. Her panicked shriek was directed at Cleopatra’s Beauty Parlour next door to us which hadn’t yet opened so the emergency nail repair had to wait. Cleaopatra’s offer the Rage of the U.S.A. – wafer thin nails but extra strong. Clearly not strong enough.

On the subject of beauty parlours – during the Christmas break I went up to Chimanimani to see some friends. In the village I took this snap and no, I didn’t go in to have my nails done.
