Sun screen

Do you remember that song,

The one that told us all to wear

Sun screen, and a million other things

That none of us recall?

Well, I wish I’d listened closely

As I touch the blistered skin

And wince with wicked pain

After yet another misspent afternoon

Baking in the tandoor sun.

    Ouch! I feel for you, Rachel! I have pale skin, and it burns so easily. I do my best to stay out of the sun, but sometimes it’s unavoidable. I hope you heal up quickly.
