Tanning that hide, the sequel
Posted 9:16 AM on Wed-19-Sep-2012
Yesterday was hide tanning day. The salon had not long purchased the equipment, and hadn't had much practice, and so, as luck would have it, they offered to spray me for free.

Slightly nervous, but willing to give it a go, I entered the room wondering exactly what to expect. A large black box sat on the table,attached to it was what suspiciously looked like a car painters spray gun, and a training manual (pretended I didn't see that). On the other side of the room was a shower with a towel on the floor. The lovely beautician walked in carrying two little plastic bags. She opened one to reveal a hair net. Good start, just had my hair coloured last week, best not spoil it with over-spray. In the second plastic bag was a paper g-string, colour blue. Paper! G-string! Blue! She placed both on the table and advised me to (and I quote) "Pop your clothes off, pop these on and pop into the shower facing the wall". Not something I'm asked to do every day believe me!

So like a good guinea pig, I did as I was told and called out "OK"! Now, all I can say is thank goodness any modesty I had left when I had babies because I'm picking anyone who was a little shy would feel frightfully uncomfortable. Me, I just felt a bit odd and wondered if I'd shaved under my arms recently.

The spraying began and smelled much more pleasant than I'd expected. Quite sweet. It was flipping cold though. Would have been much nicer on a hot summer's day used as a cooling off technique.

After much twisting, moving and lifting (I'll leave that up to your imagination), I was done. Baked, bronzed, ready to go. Well, almost. The treatment takes six hours to do its thing and I was asked to go and change in to some trackies or other loose fitting clothing. I don't own trackies, and my dresses are ready to go to Tahiti, so I opted for some light jeans. Probably not the best option, however I couldn't turn up at the workshop in my pjs could I?

Last night I had to shower before bed. Glad I listened to those instructions. A whole pile of brown washed down the drainpipe the minute I set foot in the shower. Imagine what that would have done to the bed sheets.

I wasn't going to tell The Bloke I had been spray tanned, but I was super excited about my free session that I couldn't help blurt it out as soon as I saw him, and besides, he would have found out anyway. You know that blue paper g-string? Well, turns out I had it on rather crooked which has resulted in about and inch wide white stripe on one side of my butt!

Go JO!
