The Clown From the Tanning Salon

Before heading on vacation, I went to a tanning salon. I don’t know how my son convinced me to try this tanning thing but here I am, lying comfortable in the tanning bed. I was under the lights so long the protective eye shades I wore left a big white circle round each eye. Gazing at myself in the mirror the next day I thought, “Man, I look like a clown.”

I had almost convinced myself I was overacting until I was in line at the grocery store. I felt a tug at my shirt and looked down to see a toddler staring up at me. “Are you giving out balloons?” he asked.
