Fake Bake

I had this brilliant idea to try Jergen’s Natural Glow body lotion. I have really white legs- as in they are so white, when I go swimming people are actually blinded by the glare. Usually I could care less about what other people think about my white legs. But since the lotion had been given such good reviews by friends, I decided to try it so my legs wouldn’t be such an embarrassment to family and friends. And I figured, since the tan develops slowly by applying the lotion over the course of a week, it would be safe to use. Boy was I mistaken. I used it twice- that’s right twice- and I ended up looking like someone waiting for a liver transplant. My legs turned yellow! I can’t believe the drastic results I got from only two applications. Thank goodness I only use it on my legs. I broke down and confessed to Jody what I had done. He got a good laugh out of it. Apparently my legs will be hopelessly white forever. It’ll be okay. Just remember to wear your sunglasses if you ever go swimming with me.
