Not my fault…

In preparation for the big wedding day I desired to be seen in my wedding dress and not blend in with my wedding dress. In order to achieve this goal I purchased a one month tanning pass [I know, I know I am going to get cancer but you only get married once, at least that is what I’m planning on.]

Once I got back from the honeymoon I still had some time left to use my pass and if something is already paid for then you take advantage of it! I went tanning. I went 15 minutes [this is huge for my albino body and believe me it took much building up to in order to get to this point] and came out looking a bit more tan. Very nice. This is how tanning is supposed to work [although most times it does not work this way for me].

Monday rolls around, a couple days before the pass expires and again I go tanning. I go 15 minutes. I come out and I am BURNT to a crispy.

What the heck? What happened in a few days from being able to handle 15 minutes to having 15 minutes burn me?

In talking with my wise mother I was able to discover the cause of my freak [which turns out may not have been so random after all] burn was because I was put in a different tanning bed. Yep that was all that needed to happen in order for my body to get roasted over being toasted.

Needless to say the Aloe Vera and I are the bestest of friends right now. Let’s hope I can nurse the burn into a lovely looking tan.

I'm a whitey too, and I've given up on ever being flesh colored.

I don't even aspire to tan anymore. Just a normal skin color would do.
