My last kiss was a sloppy one.
Seems ironic that many of us chasing the sun-kissed look end up with the Sunkist look instead.
The last time I tried, the palms of my hands ended up stained to look like monkey paws. My elbows and knees appeared to have been soaked in rusty water -- water that apparently dripped down my ankles and wrists.
And then there were the sheets on our bed.
When I arose the morning after, I saw I'd created a Shroud of Turin effect.
It's now been a few years since that last self-tanning attempt, and I've been reading about improvements made to the lotions that enable a near flawless application. Or so the commercials say.
I haven't yet taken the bait, but I'm tempted.
If the next time you see me I look like I've been rolled in Doritos, you'll know it didn't go well.
