I should have listened to my Husband this time

Skin tones

Clarksville, TN – Okay, this is another example of “there’s no vaccine for stupidity” and I have to admit I was wrong.

We wives usually have a pretty good idea of how to handle consumer affairs, but once in a great while, we blow it. This is the one time in recent history that my husband was right—and I should have listened to him.

It all started with a $2.00-off coupon I found in the newspaper. A sucker for a good deal, I just couldn’t pass this one up.

Having been born with skin the color of a flounder fillet, I have always longed for a golden summer tan. Having no tolerance for lying in the blistering sunshine, I have rarely attained one.

This sun bronzer (minus the $2.00) claims to give you the glorious tan you have dreamed of with just so-o-o-o-o little effort. Just spray it on and then add a little every day until you are the color you want to be.

Sounds easy, doesn’t it? «Read the rest of this article»

Sue Freeman Culverhouse Speaks to APSU Graduate Class on The Art of Teaching Writing
