The well groomed hand.

If you want to believe the old nursery rhyme, little girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice. Little boys are mostly held together by band aids and dirt.

This is especially true of James (Age 9). So when he turned in his chipped nails and dirty hands for a more pampered look, I knew there had to be a story behind it...

James: "I got a manicure and a panicure today."
Dad: "So you got your nails and...hold on. What's a panicure?"
James: "When they clean up your toe nails."
Dad: "That's a pedicure."
James: "Alright, so I got a manicure and a pedicure today."
Dad: "Why?"
James: "It looked like fun. They wash your feet and everything. Look at these fingers. Did you know there's a white part at the bottom of your fingernails. Feel how smooth my hands are."
Dad: "So did they put nail polish on them too?"
James: "Don't be ridiculous. Just a clear coat. What do you think, I'm a girl?"
Dad: "Not at all. Plenty of men get manicures."
James: "Exactly. MANicure. Why don't men get manicures and ladies get womancures?"
