We all have our own insecurities. One of mine is that I will never be the tall, dark and handsome type. Tall, yeah. Handsome, of course! Dark, well I am just SOL there.

The Situation

In grad school I had some pretty interesting friends. One of them wouldn’t classify himself as metro, but yeah, he was. Anyway, during one of our poker games, the subject of tanning came up. I was intrigued, especially being the pale guy I was. I decided to give it a shot.

Where I Fouled Up

While my intentions were just to give tanning a try, I am sure all you ladies know that it’s a process that requires constant maintenance. I get into the location with a buddy and the smokin hot chick behind the counter started to explain all the packages that were available to new clients. I settled on the best value. It was something like 80 minutes for $100 or something like that.

The first time wasn’t bad. I didn’t burn myself and since I went in the middle of winter, it actually felt good to be surrounded by all that heat. I went the next week, and the week after that. I went from being pale white to just white!  Come the third or forth consecutive week I didn’t have time to get to the tanning spa. When I went to go back I looked at myself and I looked the same as how I had started. Pale.

I gave up and had like $50 worth of value at that location that went unused. I didn’t have time or the interest to go back. Life was too busy and unsuccessfully tanning myself wasn’t a priority.

What I Learned

I learned several things through this foul up. First off, there is no way around being pale. Gimmicks rarely work. Secondly, when you have to pay up front for something you aren’t sure of, think twice! Lastly, I learned that if you are going to ignore the two things I mentioned, for chrissakes pick a location that is super convenient so you have no excuse not to get the full value for your money.

P.S. For some fun viewing check out Pale is the New Tan.
