Redheads Shouldn't Be in the Sun... Ever
I've decided that I'm an albino... with normal colored eyes and hair. I've never met anyone lighter than me. I use self-tanner and I'm still whiter than all of my friends.
Now there are some upsides to being unbelievably pale:
A. I glow in the dark at night, so if I were to get lost, it wouldn't be difficult for people to find me.
B. I can resemble a porcelain doll, which is cool... I guess.
I must say there are more downsides than upsides. The largest being that I will probably have skin cancer sometime in my life. My dad, from whom I inherited my coloring, had skin cancer at the age of 20. That leaves some scary odds for me.
Paleness makes bruises stand out and last longer. I know its weird, but I have two bruises that have been there for 2 years. One I got during spring break 2004 when I decided that it would be fun to jump from lawnchair to lawnchair by a pool. Brilliant, I know. The one hitch in this plan, was that a couple of the loungechairs were wet, and I slipped through the slats, bruising my shin pretty terribly. I'm not sure it will ever go away.
The other bruise... wow, I have a lot of embarrassing stories. I was acting in the play Les Miserables in January 2004 and we were rehearsing with new black ramps on the black stage. Well... I kind of forgot about the ramps and as I turned to run off stage, I fell right over one of them and had to be carried offstage. fun.
Aloe Vera is my new best friend. Maybe I should just lock myself inside and never go into the sun again. Did you know that some people are allergic to the sun and can only go outside at night?
So thats all i really have to complain about today.
Love your crisp, lobster-like friend,
