#OutrageousOctober: Duvalin or Werther’s Butterscotch?

25 Oct

I like to consider myself a little bit of a non-conformist. Whether that’s true or not, who knows? But I definitely like to go against the grain once in a while, even if it’s only my own grain I’m going against. Sometimes, it’s on impulse (and let me tell you those decisions sometimes happen to be the best) and sometimes it’s with a little push from my friends.

This month, the ladies at Wildcat Connections were tasked with doing something out of the ordinary. I’m usually all for some out-of-ordinary experiences, but let me tell you… This month I just couldn’t come up with any good ideas. Fortunately for me, I have some pretty cool friends with some pretty random last-minute whims.

And that’s basically the story of how I ended up getting sprayed down in a giant metal box.

Let me just say: I’m not the type to go and get spray tanned at all. I may be down to go do some questionable things here and there but spray tans where never on my “must do” list. Obviously, there’s nothing wrong with them (if anything I could use a good tan once in a while). I just somehow always thought of it as something that was cool for other people to do.

Either way, I went and got spray tanned and it was totally fine. I paid, I stripped down, and I got in the big metal box. If I’m being honest, the only thing that freaked me out about the whole ordeal was making sure I was turning in the right direction — once that thing starts spraying there’s no going back. I was not about to walk through campus looking like a chocolate and vanilla Duvalin (haha). I was going for more of the Werther’s Original butterscotch candies look.

However, I am happy to report that I managed to successfully complete the task of turning to my right side every couple of seconds. I walked out of there a little sticky and smelling heavily of spray tan but I woke up the next morning in a beautiful shade of medium tan. Not so bad! Would I do it again, though?

Probably not.

I don’t mind getting some color on me but I do mind paying for something that only lasts a little over a week long. I would rather sit out in the the sun for a few hours (or slather on some self-tanner when I’m really in need of some tan) than pay $25 every two weeks. I have bills to pay!

It was definitely something new for me to try! Maybe next year I’ll come up with something a little more outrageous, though. Who knows?
