The Tan That Can

I've been gently reminded that I haven't written anything on here in a while. I'd intended to write a whole bunch of stuff, but knowing me, I won't get to them, so you're getting anothr bulletted list. I know, how boring, right? But that's the only way you'll get updates. I'm also thinking of writing shorter entries too, so that might help with more frequent postings.

Back over July 4th weekend, I saw a man climb out of the swiming pool with a tan that reminded me of Star Trek: DS9 uniforms. On his back, he had light skin at his shoulders down to his armpits, but the rest of his back was dark. I watched him slather on sunblock on his chest and on his shoulders. I noticed that the end of his fingers only reached as far as his armpits.

You are understanding me correctly. He didn't put sunblock on his whole back, so part of it tanned faster. So I'm here to warn you, slather sunblock on your whole back. Don't think because nobody sees it normally, you can skip it because you'll have someone like me laughing at your tan.
