Now With More Foot-Grating Action!

I’ll admit, I don’t take very good care of my feet.  I paint my toenails a couple of times during the summer months, and that’s about it.  The rest of the year I say, “Screw it! My feet are hiding in socks, so who cares?”

I’m also the world’s laziest leg-shaver, but that’s neither here nor there.

But maybe I should start giving myself more pedicures with the aid of... PedEgg!

Oh look! A foot grater!

I’ll need to tread carefully, though.  Although I’ll no longer need to use my cheese grater to soften my feet, as the commercial suggests, the PedEgg saves my foot shavings for me.  That could incur some serious voodoo, seeing as so much of my DNA will be contained in one place.  And unless that voodoo involves me losing ten pounds and/or gaining the power of flight, I want nothing to do with it.

This is not an asset.  It’s a liability.  A voodoo liability.  
These things should come with warnings.

But wait a minute.... if I order from this site, I can receive a SECOND PedEgg, paying only shipping and handling!  This will come in handy, for as this second infomercial on their official website shows, the PedEgg can also be used to skin a tomato. Or is that an orange?  Whatever. It can also be used on balloons, which would be great for parties.


Look!  It’s multi-tasking!

So I guess there’s no more excuse for my gnarly feet.  I’ll be sending them my $10 plus $6.99 shipping and handling post-haste.

Note: I do not actually own a Ped Egg, nor is this a solicited, official, company-sponsered review of the Ped Egg.  But maybe the Ped Egg people SHOULD pay me for this review.  If they do, I'll vlog myself using the Ped Egg on my very own feet.  Now THAT would be an persuasive infomercial.


UPDATE: I am not really going to waste $17 on a Ped Egg.  I already own a cheese grater.

So, this has me wondering now---do you get your money back if you run that thing over a balloon and it pops??? Just wondering...

Let me know how it works. My hooves are embarrassing right now.

I'm not sure why the idea of grating skin off my feet makes my stomach churn.

Angela@BeggingTheAnswer said...

@lizbeth - I was just joking about getting one. I already have a cheese grater.

@Joshua - you'll never look at your cheese grater the same way ever again.

Joshua said...

I don't look at it now. ;^)

Angela@BeggingTheAnswer said...

@Carmen - good grief, I hope I didn't offend any PedEgg connoisseurs out there!

I am leaving this comment fully knowing you have been on your phone all day fighting of a ton of ad companies trying to sign you up. Hold off, play hard to get...

Angela@BeggingTheAnswer said...

@Stasha - I'm in high demand.

Mom said...

My nail tech bought one, and even she was grossed out!

My mom bought me one (in a store - not from the telephones). It works, kinda. It shaves all the narly skin off, but it leaves my feet rough so more predicuring is required afterward. More work = Marianna no-likey.

Angela@BeggingTheAnswer said...

@Marianna - apparently the PedEgg has been around for a while, and I only just heard of it now. Still grosses me out.

I own a PedEgg. In my defense, it was cheep and at Target. It works, but an egg full of heel shavings is GROSS. Be forewarned.
