HNT-Burn, Baby, Burn!

The Limelettes and I spent 4 days on the beach in Maryland. I am perfectly happy reading while I sun my buns. I get hot, hop in the water, swim around, cool off, return to book on the beach. I am a contented Lime. Not wanting to be a crispy Lime, I always use sunblock. This time when I was slathering myself the Limelettes asked me to smear their backs. I obliged and off we went. Only several hours later did I realize I never finished slathering myself. I completely forgot my face and chest. So if you look closely you'll see how appropriate the title of the book I'm reading is...In a Sunburned Country.

And now onto the sunburn itself...

Margie Blystone said...

It's easy to get lost in a 'Bill Bryson' book and forget all about sunblock!

ttfootball said...

snavy said...

Ouch!! Been there many times - it's the mommy burn!!

You should find someone to slather you with aloe - mmmmmm....

HHNT

Mark Leslie said...

Owy, owy, owy! But Mr. Lime is supposed to be slathering you with sunblock lotion. Hope that heals soon! Happy burnt HNT!

Andre said...

My sister has been trying to get me to read Bill Bryson for years. What do you think? Should I give it a look?

Moosekahl said...

Been there...done that! Looks like a perfect way to relax though. Happy HNT!

Logophile said...

Looks fun!
Except the whole being in the sun part
heh heh

Suze said...

Ouch! I'll be over with the cream later. That's why I don't sunbathe anymore, burn every time.

Happy HNT sweetie ;)

Laurie said...

Ahhh... you look so relaxed :-)

Use some pure Aloe on that!

Cosima said...

As someone wrote before, pure aloe vera is the way to go. It cools and heals, but boy is it expensive.

Hope it doesn't hurt too much

keda said...

LocuTus of Borg said...

Jodes said...

nice!! I have like 6 different tan lines on my back, it is so not cool.

The Melody Censor said...

OUCH!

Being the fair skinned girl tha I am, I am no stranger to sunburn. If you're prone to peeling (gross, I know) try using Noxema cold cream as lotion for a couple of days while it's still red. I don't know why, but this really helps reduce the flakiness.

I hope the book was good! Happy HNT!

CyberWarlock said...

I think the sunburn hurts more than my tattoo does o.O oWcH! Happy HNT.

Schadeboy said...

Well, I always said there's nothing better than a Sun-kissed Lime.

Get it?

Sun-kissed? Just another way of saying Sunkist. You know? As in the orange manufacturer?

Okay, it was bad.

Happy HNT anyway!

Lurch Adams said...

Next time you should burn in a cool design... I mean if you gonna get skin cancer you may as well look funky doing it.... HHNT

Bekah said...

Everything comes with a cost.
At least you should have some nice tan.
I like your reading choice.

Polt said...

Ouch! Gotta pay more attention to important things! :) In Ocean City, were ya? Been a while since I've been there. Prefer Rehoboth for perhaps obvious reasons. :P

HAPPY HNT!

Cootera said...

I adore Bryson... AND he was born in the great state of Iowa! Have you read 'A Short History of Nearly Everything'? FanTAStic!

Banana Boat Aloe Vera Gel. The stuff's incredible and I'm uber picky what I put on my skin. It looks like bright green Dippity Doo.

Seamus said...

I'd just be willing to bet you brown up pretty quick! Glad you had some good chill time at the beach! HHNT Michelle!

betchacantguesswho said...

Good thing you weren't topless. That looks like it got hot quick! Happy HNT!

I hope that doesn't hurt as much as it looks like it does! At least you will remember your time at the beach!

Happy HNT!

Semi-Celibate Man said...

I am vacationing next week and will try to remember to apply appropriate sunblock. Hope you the sunburn isn't the "so uncomfortable I don't want to move" kind.
