You know you're secure in your manhood...























...when you paint your toenails* purple just because you know it'll make the baby squeal. And man, did she squeal. Like a BYU dolphin who'd just bumped into her long-lost roommate in the food court.




*Yes, kids, he painted them himself!

One of fighters in the UFC (ultimate fighting championship) guys paints his toenails pink and walks around vegas with sandals on.

Seems to me painting your toenails is at least a passage, if not the pinnacle of secure manhood.

What in the world??? Is "...a BYU dolphin..." a female BYU student, or what? Sometimes, Marie, you write too far beyond my ken.
The baby still, after 1-2 weeks, wants to see my purple toenails, & wants me to remove her socks so she can flaunt her red toenails. We're both delightful playmates for each other.

The BYU dolphins are slightly less vomiting -inducing than the BYU hyenas. What a flashback to walking from the JKHB to the Library you just gave me.

My toes are in sad shape, and shall remain that way until May.

Wynne -- You clearly did not click to see the full-sized, hairy toe version of the photo. Feet only a Hobbit or a baby could love.

Dave -- Ha! Indeed. So the question becomes: have you made this passage yet? And if not, why not?

Dad -- I was trying to convey (as D'Arcy understood) the particular quality of sound that eminates from certain BYU coeds upon encountering a female friend from their past. The best of these encounters are those that begin when they spot each other across the Quad and run into each other's arms (unfortunately the decibel level of their otherworldly communication does not correspond to their physical distance). As for the baby, I'm glad your risky social behavior had the desired results. Just don't show the home teachers, even as a joke. They won't laugh.

D'Arcy -- The dolphins are funny, but the hyenas kinda scare me. You never know when that more benign animal glee might give way to a ravenous hunger and a harvesting of finger sandwiches from innocent passersby who are late for their biology lab. How are you supposed to pass your biology lab without fingers??

I think that shade of nail color should be renamed, "BYU Dolphins at Twilight".

Hey, It's Ansley said...

That color is especially indicative of being secure. Most guys could pull off a nice deep red but a metallic lavender, that takes courage.

Sharon -- I can't believe your cosmetic naming career never took off. There is no justice in this world.

Ansley -- Very good point. Maybe we could say he's secure in his indifference to his manhood?
