A Tale of Two Sues

By Joanne Graves


Or, Seven reasons to Visit the Spa this Summer!

Self-consious Sue has been inside all winter. But summer is finally here, so Sue is putting on her shortie-shorts and tank to head to the dog park with Polly, her pooch. As the summer breeze whips her leg hair into a frenzy, Sue realizes she's as furry as her four legged friend- ugh! No worries, she just runs a razor over her legs and bikini area, and heads out the door. Out in the light of day, passers-by try not to stare at the poor pale, pasty girl whose legs are resplendent in little raised, red razor bumps. No worries, a few hours in the sun, will give her some color for the pool party later that day! Self conscious Sue returns home to don her bathing suit and sees that her face, neck and shoulders are as red as a ripened raspberry, blotchy and broken out from the drugstore products and sweat clogging her pores. But just the tops of her knees and feet show signs of color, the remainder of her legs are still perfectly pale, save for the splattering of pinpoint razor burn-double ugh! Now her bikini area is all red and bumpy (yeah, that's sexy) from shaving this morning. To make matters worse, Sue forgot to polish her toenails, and you can see the nasty fungus under her toenail that she got from that bargain chain salon on the corner. To top it all off, Sue is seriously sore from her afternoon exercise with Polly. Self Conscious Sue decides to stay home.
Spa-goer Sue has been visiting her spa all winter. But summer is finally here, so Sue puts on her shortie-shorts and tank to head to the dog park with Pervis, her pooch. As the summer breeze caresses her skin, Spa-goer Sue is thankful for her regular waxing appointments that leave her legs and bikini area hair free for weeks at a time. No razor bumps or itching for Spa-goer Sue! Out in the light of day, Sue enjoys the admiring remarks by friends and neighbors of her healthy, hydrated skin, thanks to her monthly facials and the skin care products that are professionally recommended by her esthetician. Since Spa-goer Sue was diligently educated by her esthetician, Sue knew that the number one anti-aging product was her spf, so her skin was safe from the damaging rays of the sun. Sue scheduled a full body exfoliation to slough off that dry winter skin and start her Airbrush Body Bronzing sessions, which only enhanced the look of the fabulous nail polish color that her nail tech used at her last mani/pedi appointment. Her regular massage treatments left her feeling relaxed and limber even after all the exercise she got chasing Pervis around. Spa-goer Sue confidently rocks her new swimsuit at the neighborhood pool party!
