I was working at home yesterday, and as usual I spent most of the day on the phone. Not too bad -- it gives me a chance to multi-task. Important things like: making breakfast, clipping and filing coupons, laundry, getting caught up on mail, etc.

So I was on a conference call yesterday, and as I was multi-tasking someone said "Peapod? Peapod? Are you there?"

Me: "Yeah yeah, I'm here."

Them: "What's all that background noise? Construction?"

Me: "No, there's no construction." I giggled.

Them: "Well, what ARE YOU DOING?"

Me: "I can't tell you."

There was silence.

Me: "OK, I'll tell you. I was multi-tasking. I was 'Ped Egging' my foot."

There was an outburst of laughter on the other end. (By the way, it was all women, otherwise I would've gone with the construction theory.)

I just got the "Ped Egg", an "As Seen on TV" contraption that is designed for home pedicuring. It's like a little cheese grater, but for your foot. I thought it would be good for "upkeep" between bi-weekly visits to the salon. I used it on a very dry foot and it worked pretty well. I'm gonna try again after my foot has been soaking, and see what happens.

Overall, I'm giving a thumbs up to the Ped Egg. It's better than the foot paddle file that I normally use, but I'm not so sure it can compare to the outlawed razors they use to use in the salon.

I, too, wondered about those contraptions.

WPVI gave the peg egg a big thumbs down - they said it didn't exfoliate evenly enough. This is what I bring to the table ...

Girls: If/when your feet are jacked up, this is pretty good. It's not as good as the salon, but for upkeep it's not bad. There are 2 attachments: the cheese grater and the file. The file gets the spots missed by the cheese grater. I'd give it a 7/10.

Los, WPVI was right, but you vcaan combat that problem by egging in multiple directions, back and forth. I'm sure that'll be helpful when YOU are egging your feet! bahaaa

I bet it smells like a cheese grater, too, after a few uses.

Does it work on pimples? I might get one for my ass.
