Pretty fly, er, burned, for a white guy

Why is it that, at age 41, I still believe that I won’t get sunburned?

I did it again this weekend – the ol “Since I’m working in the yard, might as well get some color.” In 30 minutes I was pinker than the inside of Hickry Pit spare ribs and wondering why I never learn.

I’m the whitest guy I know. The parts that aren’t Irish and Scottish are English. So, I’m pretty much the whitest guy this side of Edgar Winter. By the way, that couldn’t have been his real name … could it?

My back is on fire. And I want to think you people for not warning me first. Since when is the sun dangerous in June? I can’t wait to start peeling, especially when I shed a whole layer everytime I get up from my chair.
