    Is the bulb is still in the box?

    I love that the box suggests putting one in every room so your skin can bake to a toasty crisp all around the clock.

    I used to bake under these when I was a teenager. I tried to put one in the ceiling fixture in my bedroom but, thankfully, my parents wouldn’t hear of it. If the sun itself can do so much damage I can only imagine what the special powers of this special reflector bulb are capable of.

    I fell asleep in front of one of these once and burned a layer of skin off. Like I would really sit any one of my dogs in front of one! This was a fun post!
