Just a quick post from me. I had to share this story because I thought it was pretty funny!
Yesterday my phone rang and I could see it was my sister Michelle. I didn’t answer, not because I don’t like my sister but because I had just proceeded to put fake tan moisturiser on my legs!
Once I was done lathering up my pasty white legs I gave her a call back and explained why I hadn’t answered when she phoned. This of course led to a lengthy conversation on all things fake tan.
My sister has been genetically blessed with olive skin so her need to fake it isn’t as necessary as mine. She looks permanently tanned year round. She hates winter and will pop off to Bali during the cooler months for a tan top-up!
Anyway we babbled on about different products we’ve both used and she began to tell me about a friend of hers. This particular friend favours the DIY variety of fake spray tan and enlists the help of her husband. Apparently they head out to the garage and hubby sprays her down whilst she turns very slowly clockwise……. or anticlockwise……. whatever I doubt it matters!
So Michelle says to me, perhaps John could do that for you. At which point I burst out laughing because if you were to ever meet my hubby you would know that’s just not going to be his thing. Even if I’m standing there butt naked!
Then come’s the piece of advice I may never truly recover from, she says
‘ If only there was some way to spin you slowly around……. you know like a Lazy Susan or something’
Cue hysterical laughing from both of us. I can just picture it in my head now.
Me perched atop a Lazy Susan, naked while the kids ( because they would HAVE to be there! ) take turns yelling out,
‘It’s my turn to spin her’ or ‘Stop it you’re going to fast, she’s gonna fall off!’
(or barf as I don’t do spinning things very well)
Between kid wrangling, yelling at the dog (yes she’d HAVE to be there too) and hubby armed with can of spray tan I can pretty well imagine how the whole ordeal would turn out!
I have visions of arms and legs flying everywhere and me being spun madly around! I would be living the dream if this were to actually happen!
All I keep picturing is me spinning and then looking like one of those BBQ ducks you see hanging up in Chinese restaurants.
So thanks for the advice sis but I’ll stick to my Palmers Natural Bronze tanning moisturiser, which has worked a treat so far and after only one application!!
Happy Thursday everyone , it’s almost the weekend!
