Public Display of Humiliation

I gave the girls on the Under-10 soccer team I coach some incentive to score goals.

Thursday night on the news you may have noticed me looking a little different.  Not the hair, not the clothes... the fingernails. 

When the season started I told them one of the team goals was for everyone to score a goal.  They wanted more incentive than just the glory.  They wanted to paint my fingernails.  Each time someone new scores, they get out the nail polish.  Ten girls, ten fingers-- made sense.  After a 2-2 tie and a 5-0 win, four girls have put the ball in the net and Thursday at practice, someone finally remembered the nail polish.  The teal, sparkly nail polish.  Thank God, one of the goal-scorers was absent from practice, so I'm only trying to hide three fingers instead of pretty much my whole hand.

So, if you notice me hiding my hands a little in the coming weeks, you'll know why.  Now, I just have to hope Andy and Staudt don't catch on and point it out for all to see.
