I want a bucket of carp

Hubby saw something on Mythbusters about sticking your feet in a bucket of fish, to let the fish eat the dead skin off of your feet. Amazingly, that was not the "myth" part.

Why am I hearing about this after it's been declared unsanitary? Dammit, I want to keep a bucket of tiny carp under my desk, so I can have continuous pedicure action while I'm working and futzing online.

Hubby suggested that my feet would not have enough dead skin to sustain a bucket full of fish. I offered to let him use my bucket, too, but he refused. Man has no idea what he's missing.

I do appreciate that he noticed that my feet are sufficiently soft and cute to not require the fishbucket.

Ewww. I'll take the ped egg foot-cheese grater over the fish in a bucket any day. hahaha

My feet are in desperate need of a fishbucket.

You got a great hubby. I wonder if Large carp would do the same thing or maybe they eat a toe or something. Hmmm...better re-think that.

Call it dyslexia, but every time I look at your latest blog title, I actually see...

"I want a bucket of CRAP."

And then I laugh hysterically. :)

Especially when I think of it near your toes.

Okay. I'll stop now. :) I couldn't help it.

Makes the CARP seem quite attractive now, doesn't it? :)

Sue: yeah, I am going with that one just because I know I would be splashing fishwater all over my carpet, and that's not cool.

Penelope: if you keep fussing, I'm going to do a pictorial of my feet. Keep it up, girlie!

Alf, see, I KNEW someone would understand. You're IT!

Andrea: I think large carp would be a bad idea. Let's stick with the little guys.

Chris: No. Just...no. I have already cleaned up dog crap TWICE today. I will not accept a bucket full.

Carp, all the way!

I read the word as "crap" too. Of course, I've been packing to move, so I have been seeing that word a lot. It's one of the main categories that I use to label boxes...

At any rate, yes I've heard of the fish pedicure thing. Too bad about it being unsanitary. Maybe they could have the fish gargle with lysterine before each customer.

Dang it, I thought it was still considered sanitary. I was hoping this phenomena would make it to the heartland because I heard it is DA BOMB. Shoot, shoot, shoot.
