The More Things Change

I was thinking the other day about how times, they are a changin'.

I remember a day when a woman would NEVER admit to coloring her hair. Now? Yeah, some folks don't even worry about it looking natural. I've never hidden the fact that I color my hair. I am actually proud of myself for admitting my natural color looks like crap with my skin tone.

Another thing that women kept secret were their fake nails. You never wanted to admit that those beautiful works of art weren't natural. It's almost like it made you less of a woman! Baaa. I think that's a bunch of horse hockey.

And tanning. There have been tanning booths around since, well at least since I was in college. And you'd pay hell to get a girl to admit she paid for that tan. (Like there was any other explaination for a deep tan in January in Northern Indiana.) Now buyin' a tan is one thing I have never ever ever done. Didn't need to. Actually - I have permanent tan lines. You think I'm kidding? Nope. They are there. I promise. BUT - with this wedding coming up and being back in Florida again, for however short a time, I thought it might be a good idea to get a bit of color on these cheeks (and you can take that anyway you want to).

So - for the first time in my life I am going to a tanning salon. And I have to say, it's nice. For 12 minutes I almost feel like I'm "home". It's nice to see some color, I feel a bit more like myself. In fact, I may just keep this up. It's good for my morale.

But ohhhhh it's not something I like to admit. THAT one I'm kinda old fashioned about. Hell, next thing you know I'll be talkin' about plastic surgery!
