He told me that when he pulled into the office parking lot he saw a large group of people milling around outside the main door. They told him that thanks to some pretty powerful storms that rolled though the area last night the building was without electricity. It wasn't expected to come back on until late afternoon, so after waiting around for about fifteen minutes longer they got word that the office would be closed and everyone had the day off.
It felt like a snow day in the middle of the hottest part of the year. I had a list of things I was going to do, but those plans changed so I could enjoy a little bit of Tony's freedom. After some necessary paperwork, computer stuff, and lunch I got ready to go for the pedicure I'd been looking forward to since the weekend. Tony decided to go with me (his first time ever).
When we walked into the nail salon there were no other customers, and they looked happy to see us. Tony wasn't having polish put on his nails, so he watched over my shoulder while I picked my color. Even though he didn't get the colored toenails, he said he thoroughly enjoyed the foot soak in the whirlpool bath, the nail and cuticle maintenance, the foot and leg massage, and the hot towel to remove all the crud from his smoothed lower extremities.
On the way home he was already talking about the next time.
