Hope everyone had an amazing fourth of July. I saw a post on Facebook by a friend from her British husband, "Happy Treason Day, Ungrateful Colonials," which I personally thought was absolutely hilarious! What was NOT absolutely hilarious was the amount of lobster red people I saw out on the beach. We spent about 8 hours on the beach on a military base and were, of course, camped out right next to the wildest group of marines on the whole beach. My son said there must have been "f-bomb radiation" from the nuclear testing or something...lol. However, it was great to see them let lose and have a good time, because after all, we have a fourth of July due to these men and women, who are willing to turn their lives over to our country.
All of that aside, if I had had a crystal ball I would have brought along about 56 gallons of sunscreen AND Body Food with me and started slathering it all over them upon arrival. Would that have been weird? Maybe. Would they have been in substantially less pain later? Definitely. Do they need some Body Food now for the aftermath of alcohol and probably 'too young to care about sunscreen even when sober' skin roasting? YES!!
O.M.G!!!! I cannot tell you the level of redness. I know, I know, how long can I go on about sunburn? At least another paragraph. But seriously! You know how you think you're doing really well in the sun, either not applying sunscreen but limiting your exposure, or only applying once in the morning and never again, only to go home and turn beet red in the evening? Oops! WELL THESE PEOPLE WERE ALREADY BEET RED AT 2PM!!!!!! I just keep imagining what they look like now. Brings tears to my eyes honestly.
So all of that to say...wear sunscreen people...help yourself. It's one thing to have the hangover of a lifetime, it's another to have it along with 3rd degree burns head to toe. Yeesh. And have some Body Food on hand just in case...(shameless plug).
