Tegan: Yesterday I went for a manicure. Ya… Me… Okay, so-
Fan: Can we see.
Tegan: Ya, well I mean it’s yuck so I got clear.
Tegan: Thank you. The story is so ridiculous that basically, you know, my girlfriend is in town and I know she likes girly things. She wears a purse and shit and all that. That’s what you do when you’re me “You’re like I booked us an exclusive private amazing manicure tomorrow- For Valentine’s day and she’s like “Ohh” and so
Tegan: I know, except we get there and it’s like, there’s like nine hundred people in there. And it’s running like an hour behind and we walk in the door and they all look- Just so many people were getting pedicures and manicures, like even, like so many people. It was just like I walked in it and it was just like “Gasp” and they were like “Yes?’ I was like ” We have an appointment at three to get our nails done.” and they were like “Oh okay one second.” “Yeah what how about one hour later” and like more people came in I don’t have appointments I was just so stressed out. So they come and they get my girlfriend and they were like “okay we will do one of you right now”. It was supposed to be like a couple’s thing and she like flew off by herself and leaving me in the manicure booth by myself, and we were like 5 feet apart but it didn’t matter, it felt like that. Not because I was like “oh i need to be around you” but because i was in a fucking manicure place and anyway. So she starts getting her manicure and then I think they pick up on my energy because two more people come in and then one other lady okay we will do you next to this girl. The girl is like ” No, she’s been waiting forever” and i was like “I have” and then, then they just walk away. Nobody does anything so another 10 minutes goes by and my girlfriend keeps turning around and she keeps giving me this look. And I was like “Don’t look at me, stop peeking my way” . Anyway so they come over and get me and there like “okay okay okay okay” Like if that’s going to make me feel calm on Valentine dayish. “Okay okay okay” so i’m like ” iiiiii” like normally they don’t give manicures but will give one for me. So they bring me to the reception desk. Where they made a special manicure place for me. Yeah. So I sit down next to the cash register. So she starts to give me one of the most abusive [Cracks up laughing so i couldn’t understand a thing she was saying.] Troubling, troubling. 10 minutes goes by and she rips at my cubicles, sand papering my nails down and- Every, i swear to you i’m not exaggerating.
Sara: Did you ever had a manicure?
Tegan: I have once, but it’s different when you feel like you made a connection with the person doing it. when she fetches you the receptionist. like “Okay okay” So she’s- People are leaving from their massages and their pedicure- and she’s like “One second” gets up, cashing them out, giving them change, go and find the person who gave them the thing gives them the tip and comes back and was like grabs my little hand was like “Okay” and keeps on.
Sara: You could have gotten an infection from all the money
Tegan: Aww it was so, it was so insane. I was just like ” I swear my nails looked dirty when it was done” So this goes on for like 10 minutes or whatever. And then she’s like “What colour do you want?” and i’m like “None colour, none colour” like “Clear please” and she’s like “Really clear?” and i’m like “Ya” ”Okay”. So then she’s like, um, “i’m going to put an undercoat on first” and i was like “Ya that’s fine, that’s great” and then she’s like “Okay” she paints the clear on. and then she’s like one second. She leaves again. And then all of a sudden, like i’m sitting with my hands out. And all of a sudden this like vice grip comes on my shoulders… It’s time for my massage. [LAUGHING EPISODE] My girlfriend lost her mind she had her camera phone out, I mean like she thought it was the funniest thing she’d ever seen. [Laughing while speaking] And I was like literally like. [last picture]
