I am thinking that the only thing worse than my new friend, Bright Red Painful Sunburn, is the women at this party looking at me saying, "Aaawwwwwwww, you poor thing!"

Now, I don't want you to think that I don't appreciate the concern. I do. But the Aaawwwwwww- with all of those extra syllables, they are more than just some emphasis. Someone just gave me an "Aaaawww" that lasted about 20 seconds. Please say this outloud to yourself and hold the count for twenty seconds. See? It's just uncomfortable, lady!

So, I moved away, towards my little cousin, Joey, thinking I could get a reprieve from my sunburn being the topic of conversation. Because, after all, I need no reminding with the searing thighs of fire blazing into my pants.

Joey: "You should really watch yourself. That burn you have there, that is definitely going to give you cancer."

Happy birthday, Joey!

P.S.: I had on waterproof 55 SPF on my body, and SPF 85 on my face, but I guess my fourteen year old cousin knows more than Aveno.

Sorry Aly Beth but, Aaawwww!
You're pretty funny and I know you're in pain, but you made me smile! If you are still in school, you probably excel in creative writing courses, don't you?
