sunscreen: a cautionary tale.

As a limerick:

There was a pale girl with no tan
And that’s where her real troubles began
She played out in the sun
And exclaimed, “Oh! How fun!
But this burn was not part of my plan.”

As a haiku:

bright orb in the sky
why do you mock my fair skin?
i can’t stay away

As a public service announcement:


On my to-do list today? Buy more aloe vera.

What are you up to this weekend? I’d love to hear from you!

  1. We should have added some pearls to the picture, would have looked good against that bright red. So sorry love. Not sure how I escaped any. Just thing of the awesome northwest tan you will have soon. if only you’d had socks and shorts on to match.

  2. This came a day late and a dollar short. I was at the beach for the fourth and got roasted like a marshmallow. The kids got their sunscreen but their mom sure didn’t. Funny how that works.

  3. I am new to your blog (and loving it)… came over after a posting on Runs for Cookies 🙂

    So sorry about your burn. My husband and I got very burned about a week ago. Mine was in crazy places… groin, behind knees, and my butt, ugh! My recommendation is stay moisturized and try not to use soap/shampoo for the first 2-3 days. For moisturizer, I think coconut oil was the best!

    • Thank you so much, B.C.! I just started blogging about a month ago and am really having so much fun. As for your burn, all I can say is OUCHIE OUCHIE OUCHIE!! So sorry! I am totally trying the coconut oil. I’ve started molting today, but I promise – no pictures! 🙂

  4. Ouch! Get the aloe vera gel. Ahhh, so soothing. And hey, at least there is some sun from which to get a burn! I was beginning to think summer was just an urban legend.

Don't leave a reply tomorrow when you could leave a reply today!
