Last week, a FaceBook friend posted, “The sun feels so good on my face after all that cloudy weather!” Feeling silly, I commented, “Oh sure, it feels great now. The sun makes you feel so warm and glowing, all the time whispering, ‘Trust me baby, I won’t hurt you…take off that tshirt…don’t worry about protection.’ Even though you know you shouldn’t, it just feels so good to be with the sun and you don’t want to take the time to wear protection. But if you aren’t careful, next thing you know, you develop a solarly-transmitted disease.”
Thanks Hoolie for the invention of the words”solar transmitted disease I love your humor. I only have to add to the sun:
Dear Sun, I have loved your presence for many years, you made me feel good. I am not so sure I like your souvenir: a sun kissed melanoma on my ear on a solar elatosis. Very sorry to have abondoned your presence now- I am only allowing you for max 15 min on my armes and legs, but you will never touch my face or ears. I will enjoy your warmth – through my SPF clothing.
I had to smile reading your comments you gave on facebook – very well done, and probably better then warnings.
