I See The Most Curious People

24 Apr

Where? At the tanning bed. I know, I know, I shouldn’t go to the tanning bed. It’s dangerous, will give me wrinkles and make me look old before my time, etc. I don’t go all the time, just once a week, so get off my back already. Thanks.

Anyhow, if you sit around and wait your turn in a tanning salon long enough, you’ll see some interesting and unlikely patrons. I mean, lots o’ peeps get their tan on. Not only am I amazed at how there doesn’t seem to be an age limit on tanning, but especially by the men who go. This week, I saw a man in work boots come in and use the Ultra Bed. Is it just me, or do work boots and tanning beds not exactly mix? I respect that Manual Labor Man wants a tan, but I suddenly had a desperate need to know why. Does he have a tropical vacation coming up and need a base tan? Does he just like for his legs to be bronzed? Is he preparing for some sort of construction worker’s calendar photo shoot?

I really wanted to ask, but I sat silently and pretended to be focused on my BlackBerry.

    The salon-in-question wouldn’t happen to be Palm Beach Tan would it? I go there and I come in contact with the strangest of tanners. . .
