Ped Egg + drinking = disaster

A buddy called me tonight (who sounded buzzed on the phone) and announced:  "My face and arms hurt."

I asked why.  "I used a Ped Egg on my face and I cut myself."

I started laughing.  I couldn't help myself.  It turned out that he had purchased a Ped Egg, which is supposed to be used to smooth out calouses on your feet, on his elbows and arms and then on his face.  He apparently thought it was supposed to cut hair.

I explained that he used it incorrectly and not for its intended purpose.  He then asked me what calouses were.  I explained that they are thick layers of skin that your body produces when an area is rubbed (like when a shoe rubs against your feet) as a defense that your body has to protect the skin there.

At least it didn't cut him so badly that medical attention is required.  But it does make for a funny story!
