Those who know me well, know that me and the sun do not get along. I don't really tan, even if I do get an appropriate amount of sun. I more just get a reddish tint. Nothing golden for this body. But rarely do I get an appropriate amount of sun. So, sunscreen it is. Saturday I went to John's t-ball game from 12-2. I almost went without any sunscreen, but as I watched Ann lather John and Michael, I decided I should probably do something. I didn't feel like trying to find any adult sunscreen, so I just used this stick that Ann has for the boys. It literally looks like you're applying deodorant to yourself. Apparently, I wasn't very methodical. Saturday evening, this is what I discovered on my right hand/arm:
The redness definitely made me realize that it was a good thing that I wore sunscreen, because otherwise both my arms would be that red!
It reminded me of the time when I was 12 and I had a bathing suit that scooped in the back and I had my brother apply sunscreen. He only applied it to the edge of the swimsuit instead of going slightly under the suit. At the end of that day I had a burn line around the edge of my suit that looked like Africa.
And this is why I prefer to be indoors all summer long.
