Social media users’ fascination with her daily life’s practicalities has reached a high, piqueing their curiosity. Someone asked: “How does she wipe? Genuine curiosity.”

“The wiping was my first thought but has she ever worked?” wondered someone else, “Like, there’s no way you could legit do anything herself.”

“How does she get anything done at all, like anything, including fitting into a car?” asked a third person joining the discussion, “or clothing?”

After shattering the record, Armstrong responded to these curious questions by saying in an interview: “Well you know, when I go to the bathroom it’ll be the same as anyone else going to the bathroom, just I work with my nails probably in a different way they’d work with theirs.

“I use a lot of toilet paper. I don’t wrap it around my hand like some people do, I can’t do it like that, because it ain’t going to work that way.”

Not content to stop there, one person questioned Armstrong, asking how many bottles of nail polish she needed, and another added, “Why was I thinking those were dreadlocks?”

Others questioned Armstrong’s decision to grow her nails that long, and there’s a tragic story behind it.

She’d begged her kids to get up so she could go to the supermarket on the day she resolved never to trim the talons again.

However, while she was away, her youngest daughter called to inform her that Latisha, 16, wouldn’t wake up. At that moment, she learned her child had tragically died in her sleep due to an asthma attack.

In the past, Armstrong declared, “That was the worst day of my life.”

Every weekend, Latisha would meticulously manicure her long nails, which she had always possessed.

“She was the only one who did my nails. She polished them and filed them for me,” the woman remarked. Armstrong explained that wearing long nails was her way of honoring her daughter and preserving her memories. Armstrong battled depression for ten years following her daughter’s passing.
