A Sunny Outlook On Getting Burned
I have a bit of an issue with the sun. I love it. It doesn't love me too much. Or maybe it DOES love me too much and that is why I sunburn so easily.
When I was about eleven, I went on vacation with a friend and her family. Two hours out in the ocean with no sunscreen had me wearing a receiving blanket around my shoulders so as to not pop all the blisters I acquired on my shoulders. You know how embarrassing it is to wear a baby blanket on one's upper body? And since I was completely boy crazy, I just knew that my new look would attract all kinds of attention from the opposite gender. Too bad it was looks of disgust and pity.
I took what I could get in those days.
