Good Day, Sunshine
This particular restaurant is in a strip mall, with a tanning salon as a neighbor. There wasn't much to look at inside. The pizza prep area is hidden by a half wall and frosted glass. Watching someone make a pizza is one of the great joys of life.
So, my gaze was turned out the big windows. I watched young woman after young woman enter the tanning salon. Remember, this was a perfectly sunny summer afternoon.
Hey, you're paying to tan in a booth. THE SUN IS FREE!
I thought about for a moment. I think I'm like many people. We view tanning salons as a winter oriented business, but tanning in a booth, in the summer, does make some sense. It's quick and efficient. There are no creepy neighbors looking at you in your bikini. And when you tan in a booth, you can avoid tan lines, if you know what I mean.
Waiting for that pizza gave me a new outlook on the business.
Of course, too much tanning can be dangerous.
Whether it's inside or outside, be careful.
