I am pasty. My grandmother has had skin cancer many times and I was blessed with her pale English skin. My parents, sister, brother in law, and husband all have a deeper, more olive complexion. So when I went to a friend’s pool the other day, I knew I would wear sunscreen. However, I also wanted a bit of a tan…on my legs at least! It is summer! And so I am 4 days removed from said pool time and I have been bathing in aloe and crying at night. I missed spots and I completely neglected my legs. They are lobster like. So in this brief post I urge you all to remember who you are (pasty kid) and to use sunscreen accordingly. A tan is nice, but not worth the pain and suffering that I am currently enduring.
