Tanning Bed Blunder!

Well......here we go again with one of my many embarrassing moments. Funny thing is, that I haven't had one in a while so I guess I was due!
For the past month I have been tanning at VIP Tanning up in Lake Orion. I bought this pass for two reasons, 1: because my pasty white skin was blinding, and 2: for some time to myself. It has been so nice to have Vaughn watch the kids at night for 40 minutes while I go and tan, and I actually am not so blindingly white. OK, so now you know why I have been tanning, now here is the embarrassing part:
I went tanning today, it was my last day to tan on my pass and I wanted to use it all up. Vaughn and the kids dropped me off and would be back to get me in about 2o minutes. I went in, said HI, got my bed assigned to me and then headed back to tan. I got in the room, put on my lotion, turned the bed on and got into the bed when...........CRACK!!! OH NO!! The tanning bed cracked under me. I laid there for about 10 seconds wondering what to do...I knew staying in the bed was out of the question, and so I finally decided that I had to go and tell the girls who were working what happened. I pulled on my clothes, shut off the bed and then walked up to the front.
ME: UM....I think I broke your tanning bed.
Worker girl: WHAT?
ME: I laid down and it cracked.
Worker girl: OMG are you ok?
ME: Yes.
Then she and her co-worker followed me back to ascertain the damage. It was a huge crack in the bottom of the bed, about 3 feet long. I was so embarrassed. I think the worker girls could tell and they reassured me that it wasn't my weight that did it. UH HUH! Thanks gals. They told me that they had never seen a bed crack before, thanks again, now I feel really good about myself. Needless to say, they put me in another room, I tanned and left. Vaughn was in the car with a screaming baby, with a look on his face that said, "What took you so long?" I then proceeded to tell him my embarrassing tale and his face turned into a big grin. "You are the only person I know who has ever broken a tanning bed," chuckled Vaughn. Thanks babe, now my self confidence is shot to heck....Why do these things happen to me..........OH YES I know why, so that I have something interesting to blog about. Hope you enjoyed the laugh.

That is a funny story Nicole!! you are too cute! So I'm going to tell you NOT TO WORRY!! I worked at a tanning salon in Provo while going to school. It was a big salon with about 30 beds. And quite often I had to call the owner to replace the bottom acrylic because of cracks! So it's ok! And it does happen! You are not alone and you are DEFINITELY not too big! You are such a tiny thing!! But such a funny story! I bet it scared ya!! Thanks for posting fun blogs!
