We had a lovely young lady visiting us at home earlier today. She had driven some fifteen kms from her home to a Beauty Salon near our home which she claimed was the best in Pune.
While she and my DIL were chatting about things that ladies chat about, I overheard a bit that puzzled me. The young lady said, and I quote her, “I am not the extension personality”.
I was puzzled as during my younger days, an “extension personality” was someone in an office, who, due to the nature of his/her work was given an extension phone without a dial which could only receive calls or make outside calls through the central telephone exchange board. It was considered to be a status symbol to be given such an instrument.
I decided to investigate what it meant in today’s context and discovered that the lady was talking about finger nail extensions.
I had to google for finger nail extensions to find what exactly the term meant! I wonder if such an extension would not cause problems for the wearer as well as others nearby!
Did you know about this beauty enhancement device?

Yes, but I haven’t given it much thought other than they seem quite impractical and that they can make the natural nails weaker.

I believe that impractical is an understatement.
Along with hair extensions yes of course tho I have never partaken of either. And it might surprise you to know that ladies can speak of everything and not just lady-stuff. 😀
No WWW, it does not surprise me. This bit was just one little nugget in a long conversation about many things.
😁. It is a new definition, so to say.
Aside, I was happy to recall the only incoming call extension. It was pretty noisy and will often cause irritation. Then the intercoms came to our rescue. You could adjust the volumes.
Yes, I went all the way back to 1967 to my MT trainee days in Mumbai when I learnt about this, need I say, the hard way.
Yes, I have known about these nail extensions, even reluctantly allowed my teen daughter to put some on me when she pressed me many years ago. They didn’t last long given how I use my hands. I don’t know how anyone keeps them on if they do anything with their hands. I’ve never had them since and wouldn’t want them.
I am not surprised. Unless you have servants and attendants to do things for you, these will be impractical.
