I go to this place a couple times a month called Happy Nails to, you guessed it, get my nails done.
When The Bastardette was visiting last month I took her there for a pedicure. This little Vietnamese girl gave her the royal pedicure and engaged her in conversation.
Today she was doing my nails. I looked at her license and asked her to pronouce her name for me. Even after she said it, I couldn't do it. She said it means Jade, but her parents call her Li-Li.
She asked about Gina and said she misses her. She asked about my other Children and I filled her in on The Bastard and The Bastard Junior. She asked about my husband. What? How do I explain about all five of them? I say the children's father is in Arizona. She say he must be crazy to be there instead of with me. 😀
She tells me about the man she is married to. He's old, she says. I asked if she chose him, or her family (Vietnamese custom). "Oh no, I choose him…I loooooove him very much."
On and on the conversation goes. She says I need to relax and moves me over into the massage chair. OMG, this is wonderful. She says to stay there until I sleep.
How would you kids feel about another adopted sister? We wouldn't call her Gnoc…or Jade. Li-Li is ok, but we would refer to her as the Happy Bastardette. 😀
