Adventures in the Daf: The Most Awkward Conversation

So, I'm playing a little catch-up on the Daf, but today's learning covered whether you're allowed to cut your nails on Chol HaMoed and during aveilut. During shloshim, if a woman needs to cut her nails in preparation for going to the mikvah, she is supposed to ask a non-Jewish woman to cut them for her. 

I'm not exactly sure how that conversation would go....
