You know how your mind goes from one train of thought into another until you all of a sudden think "How did I get onto that subject?". I do that a lot. I don't know why but I was thinking about tanning machines for some reason, got to thinking about when I had a sun lamp when I was a teen. They shouldn't let you buy those things without proper traning. I have had places come up on my legs that I think were caused by my burning myself with that sun lamp. Let me tell you that I am a very pale person. I have had people come up to me and tell me I needed to get some sun. How f'ing rude.

I used this lamp to get tanned. I took it with me to spend the night with my friend Pam. I want you to understand that we are total opposites physically. I am short and she is tall. I have short legs and a long torso and her legs are long. People sometimes called her Legs. Pam decided she wanted to use it. She sat it on her stomach while she laid in bed and read. I kept telling her that she should be wearing the goggles and that she shoudln't stay under it so long. "Oh I will be okay. I don't burn.". Famous last words.

I woke up in the early morning with Pam sitting up in bed and moaning for "moma". Her eyes were swollen shut and pooching out like someone had hit her. It was horrible. I am suprised that she doesn't have face cancer by now. It wasn't funny but now when I think of it I can't help but laugh.

Her face was messed up for a long long time. She peeled several times over. I remember her telling me recently that they said she had cataracts but she didn't beleive them. And now I am wondering..........
