Ow, Verily, Ow

First day off since I got here, and the cousin and her hubbie took me out to an island in the middle of Tampa Bay...

Ate well, swam kinda, swallowed sea water much, drank many brewskis, and the Sun reached down, and touched me... no, slapped the hell out of me. "Red," it's my new nickname, along with "Screamy Bastard." Touch me on the shoulders, and you may die. Just sayin'.

I've got Janis screaming in my ear right now, and I can't figure out if it's cool, or it sucks... kinda in between if you ask me.

Gotta throw another gallon of aloe on right now.... I may be an irritable sunnofabitch if not....

Peace out...

Awwww. It just makes me want to give you a big old bearhug, with lots of pats on the back. Hehehe.

Oops - yep, follow Richmond's advice and you won't be part of the menu when someone asks... Do you want fries with that?

Well, if it ain't my Red Brother ... *snicker*
(sorry ... couldn't resist)

As back-asswards as this will sound, my trick is to take a hot (yes - hot!) shower. Work the temp up to steamy, it will be painful at first, then hopefully go numb. Try to let the hot water directly spray onto the reddest burn areas. Then dry off (oh so gently) and put on that lovely aloe vera stuff. Seriously ... I do this whever I get sunburn (I'm fair, it happens a lot), and it takes the burn out of the skin faster than any other process I've tried.

Hell, I love sunburn... You get it once a year, and then you're done gettin' it until the next year.

Say hi to Sponge Bob Square pants for me will ya Lobsterboy?

You went to an island and didn't fish? Marcus is gonna rip you a new one over that bro'...

yup, that's how we can spot tourists.

Sigh. And I was hoping to give you a big bear hug when I saw you. Guess I'll have to pretend from afar. Even with the burn, if you go out again... put on SunScreen. You can get burned on a burn.

Just so you folks know, I was wearing sunblock... lots of it. And I kept applying it.

But being a human beach toy does have its disadvantages... damn kids.
