I definitely don't go out and actively "tan" like I did back in my high school and college days (esp. as a lifeguard during summers), but I still think a little color is a good thing -- it looks "healthy." Anyone still lie out with the coconut-scented oil ? Having a tan used to indicate/suggest that you had the leisure time to enable you to play hours of golf or sail on the Sound. I guess those days are over, but I wonder if anyone still works on getting a summer tan?
