My day in the sun

So it turns out that roll-on sunscreen has its advantages and disadvantages...


Also, it's hard to take a picture of your own knee.

On the bright side, my yearly Father's Day gift of baseball tickets to my dad this year was actually used on Father's Day.  The home team lost, but it was still a good game; the stadium was awesome (the new Nationals park in DC); and my parents and I all had a great time.

Isn't it funny-looking? The next morning I thought the lines on my leg were from the sheet being folded strangely under me when I slept, but then I remembered putting the sunscreen on and apparently doing a half-assed job. At least my arms and neck were okay...

Hey, racing stripes!

*snicker* Yeah, with a swirl over the kneecap. I hope it fades soon...

At least you have the photo for posterity and a cool idea to try on Mr Z one day. *grin*

Yep, just like the photo I saved of the massive bruise I got a few years ago when I slammed the car door against my leg. I think I have a shot of the poison ivy over half of my lower leg from last fall, too.

Yes, I am clumsy...why do you ask?

I think you have something against your leg!

Cotton wool and bubble wrap might be an idea.

Hee! Different legs, but that's a good idea. It's like I went through the gawky adolescent phase around age 30. Considering my skin is breaking out right now like a teenager's, maybe I'm just a really, really late bloomer?

Oh, no! You're aging backwards!

ROFL! I've done that kind of stupid thing as well.

Glad you had a great Father's Day with your family.

Of course, striping the sunblock has far more serious consequences in Australia...

Like what?

Our sun is a lot stronger than yours - hole in the ozone layer and all that jazz. You can literally feel it burning you at times.

I hadn't realized it actually makes that much of a difference. Yikes!

Um...world's highest rates of skin cancer...

I think that sorta sums it up.

I'm pretty fair skinned, though, and I do burn easily. A day in the Aussie sun with striped sunscreen will mean for me several days of extreme pain - even blistering - followed sometime later by large amounts of peeling skin. I've been known to slough it off like a lizard, lol.

LOL! At least you know that the roll on sunscreen works...at least in the places over which it rolls.
Jun. 25th, 2009 11:51 pm (UTC)
Yes, that's exactly it. It was really effective in the places where it was applied. I guess the packaging needs a warning label about results depending on the competency of the person applying the product...
