Edward Scissorfeet - AF


According to An Island Life: 

"In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response."


I’m about to cut my husband’s toenails.

Blech.

I did not know when I married my husband that I was also signing up to be his personal pedicurist. Gross.

Unfortunately for me, my husband has horrible flexibility and therefore, cannot reach his feet to cut his toes properly. Before I came along, he actually peeled his nails. Can you imagine? PEELING your nails? And because his toenails have suffered his abuse for years, HBL is now prone to ingrown toenails and hangnails.

And so, instead of hearing him moan about the pain his feet are giving him, I have been helping Edward Scissorfeet get a grip on his snaggley mess.

*Clip, clip*

My question today:

Do you clip your husband’s / significant other’s toenails?

Not I as I don't think I have the strength to cut my hubby's very thick toenails! I would send him to go get a pedicure instead!

Buckeroomama said...

Ah, true love! :)

Thank God mine cuts his own.

Veronica Lee said...

"For better or for worse", that's a serious vow, and you take it very VERY seriously! Good for you!

Mighty M said...

NOOOOOOOO! I do advise him on his need for a pedicure once in a while though! ;-)

LZ @ My Messy Paradise said...

No way!
I do cut his fingernails, though. And ONLY because I like when he scratches my head and back, and I don't need to bleed because of his ragged nails.

Ummm...I don't even look at his toes!

Alicia said...

Oh heck no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And not because they're gnarly or anything. I just can't stand feet!!

BUT, I'm sure if he couldn't reach them I would do it!!

Jennifer said...

Dear Lord In Heaven: So far, this is not boding well... I seem to be the ONLY one in the world crazy enough to be clipping her husband's toenails! AAAGGGGHHHH!!! I'm going to have to SERIOUSLY get him to get pedicures. ASAP!

wkiskizt said...

Holy Hannah. I love my husband dearly...but clipping his toenails is something I will not do.

Shelly said...

I don't clip them, but if he couldn't do it because he was injured or what have you, I'd do it because I love him. Even if it's gross. lol

Lyr said...

HECK no… I hate my husband’s feet!!! AHHH!!

Sushicookie said...

No I don't. He can do them himself. He's very picky about it since he had one horrible ingrown toenail before that he had to have the nail removed for. So he's really particular about how it's done.

Alicia said...

blech...i vomited a little bit in my mouth...i HATE feet. you couldn't PAY ME to touch my hubby's toes...he gets the same thing though..the ingrown nails...poor guy! but luckily he can reach his toes :) you're such a good wifey!

James Ricardo The Actor said...

Boo that is what you call love! You betta do it, cause you are better than me. LOL

Sherry said...

No way! But if he couldn't do it himself and he asked very nicely, I suppose I would, maybe. ;)

Becca said...

I really do not like feet...I don't think I could ever do anything like this :/.

The Daily Dean Chronicals said...

Okay, so I admit it! I cut hubby's nails....Why?? Because otherwise he won't do it and I end of scratched in bed! I call him "teradactyl toes" when they need to be done!

Ps. I agree about the things we "signed" up to do when you get married! I thought I was gonna be a trophy wife, and that has yet to happen!

blueviolet said...

You have GOT to be kidding me! Absolutely and unequivocally NO!

Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma said...

Hell to the NO! I do have a funny story about his toes though. We were together for about three and half years before we were married. In all that time the man covered his toes with socks and refused to show me his feet. I always teased him and asked him if he had sixth toe he was hiding or some weird deformity I should know about, but he would never fess up. We even went on our honeymoon to Cancun and he wore sneakers the whole time. Finally about a year later he had enough of my constant jokes about his feet. He showed them to me. He was so embarrassed all those years over his black toenails. He had gotten a fungus way back when and was even too embarrassed to see a doctor so it got worse and worse. I laughed so hard because I couldn't believe that he was embarrassed about such a common problem. We joke about it now, but he was so relieved that I didn't find him repulsive and demand an immediate divorce.

Helene said...

Eeeeeewwww, yuck! Now that is some serious love right there. If your husband ever complains about anything you do, you have to remind him that you're probably one of a handful of wives who cut their hubby's toenails.

Not exactly what you had imagined when you took your vows, though, huh? I admire you!!!

Stesha said...

No, actually he clips my toenails.

Hugs and Mocha

Jennifer - that is above and beyond the call of matronly duty my friend. There is not a sum large enough to compensate me for going near Andy's toenails. He has the one rogue toenail that I am always harping on him to trim. But I'll be damned if I'm going to do it for him. And how flexible do you need to be exactly to cut your own toenails? That's a lame excuse if ever I heard one.
