Spray Tan

Last week my mom came for a visit and vowed to be tan when she left.

I suggested cheating and trying the spray tan.

The experience for me was similar to childbirth. Obviously not the pain part, but when it was over I vowed never to do it again. A little time has passed and now I’m thinking, “I could do it again, it wasn’t that bad.” Another way it is similar to childbirth is that if you don’t wipe well, you’ll have streaks running down your legs!

My mom didn’t wipe off at all and after the concerned look on the clerks face, I decided to wipe off well! I guess I really didn’t wipe off as well as I thought. Some spray tan had puddled in my belly button and on my feet. Of course I didn’t realize this until the tan had cured and I had a really dirty looking belly button and feet.

The whole time is was getting sprayed in the booth trying not to inhale the vile brown spew, which was impossible, I kept thinking about the friends episode when Ross is in the tanning booth. Hilarious.
So my suggestions to you if you try the spray on tan is be able to hold your breath for a long time, put the barrier cream on your hands and feet like suggested, but also put it on the inner part of your forearms. Nothing is a giveaway like having tan forearms. The third suggestion is wipe off well!!
