Fun Fact: There Are Nearly 6 Million Nail Salons In Lubbock Now.
In case y'all haven't figured it out yet, I notice things. I'm an observer of life and the world. I think of things, and I start letting it flow. It seems, however, that some people get a little rumphurt when you look at anything cross-eyed and express their anger in the Facebook comments. I'm sorry for your loss, and please...show us on the doll where I hurt you.
That being said...in my travels throughout our beloved metropolis, I have noticed an unusually high concentration of a certain personal care provider that is my own little oasis for bliss and relaxation.
The omnipresent Nail Salon.
Here in Lubbock, it seems like in every single strip mall there is a purveyor of nail nirvana, and pedicure peacefulness. One of my guilty pleasures is to jam my gnarled hooves into a warm spa bath, and let a nail tech go to work on shining up and smoothing and soothing my tootsies.
Driving back from lunch today, I noticed that directly across from one another, there was a nail salon that had just opened up in the HEB parking lot on 114th, and one that was preparing to open directly across the street between Costa Vida and Five Guys.
After doing some quick calculations using common core math, I deduced that Lubbock probably has 1 nail salon or every Lubbock County Resident. Of course, your actual highway mileage may vary.
Either way, they seem to be EVERYWHERE. Seriously, as you drive take a look around. In fact, I think I just saw our own Wes Nessman installing a pedicure chair in our conference room. Kudos for creating another revenue stream...and remember, my feet are very ticklish, and I'd like clear polish, please.
