A friend used to say: "tan fat always looks better than white fat".
I'm feeling very pale lately. I used to go tanning several times a week in years past. I also called it the "easy bake oven" or the "electric beach". I know there is high risk of developing melanoma from tanning and that is partly why I stopped.
So since I've been feeling pasty white I decided to get a little color this weekend. I laid by the pool for a short while. Chatted with some neighbors, listened to the iPod and really tried to relax.
Well, I got some color. I just didn't want it to be bright red!!
Now I'm nursing angry red skin! You'd think I would learn... I'm a few years from the half century mark, I should know better!
My skin is just soaking in the aloe vera. I'm applying lotion because I know that in a few days I will be dry and itchy.
Hope y'all had a great weekend. And remember...
