So, yesterday from 3 pm-7 pm we washed cars and had a generally good time. This morning we continued our car wash from 10 am-2 pm. I tell you these details because now you know how long I was out in the sun. I wore a shirt with cap sleeves so that I would have a decent line on my arms. I wore shorts so my short little legs could get crispy, and I wore some oh-so-cute flats. My face is okay because I was wearing a hat, but my lips are a lovely shade of red, swollen and sore. My arms are lobster-esque. My legs are all sun-rashy. What else? Oh, right. My feet. My feet are more burned than I ever thought possible. There is a white strap on the each foot, but for the most part these little feet of mine are bright red. I tried to wear another pair of shoes to the dance tonight, and the change of strap hurt horribly. (I am trying to be ultra descriptive because I don't have a camera! :)
What's more, I have those amazing hot and cold flashes that accompany a good sunburn, so I have to stay wrapped in blankets. I washed dishes tonight and it made me feel like there is no way I can take a tubby until this primary color leaves my skin.
Overall, the car wash earned the National Honor Society over $25o, which is an incredible success. And, I have experienced my first real sunburn of the season, which has to happen sometime.
Please feel free to respond to this post with an answer the following:
-Have you been burned recently (literally or figuratively)? Details would be great!
