Beaver


I got sunburned. Bad. I have always had the theory that having a little pink on your cheeks is better than having no color at all. I would like to take that statement back right now. My body is fried to a crisp, only on the front of course because I also believed that I should only take the time to tan the part of my body that I could actually see. So, now that I wear a size bigger in my pants, due to the swelling of my skin and my nose has peeled completely off, lets just say I will be wearing sunscreen the next time I decide to float on the "pleasure craft" at the Russell's cabin out on their lake all day.

Also, don't ever take a "Tylenol" from your husband when you want to ease the pain of your sunburn. It most likely is his prescription pain medication for his back that will make you completely stoned. Hilarious TFB.

Hmm I would hope the main reason you will wear suntan lotion next time was the whloe skin cancer, painful death thing....you are welcome btw.

Lindsey said...

that happened to me in rocky point, i was so burned i could barely move. so the alan decided to give me a soma (hilarious) totally knocked me out.

Jenny said...

I think you are the funniest! Sometimes I make Tom listen to me read your blog entries outloud.

P.S. it totally makes sense to only tan the part that you see.

Getting burned really bad is one of the worst things in the world. You have to take cold showers, putting your clothes on is painful and takes forever, oh man it just sucks all around. Too bad no one slips me drugs when I get sunburned, I wouldn't complain...

Good things come to those who wait. Soon Icarus will be back in the Tah and he will surely hook you up with some pain meds.

i'm pretty sure it's against the blogosphere rules to post a picture of such a divine looking chocolate mess without telling your readers where to get them or how to make them....sucks about your sunburn. but what great story, right?

Alifinale said...

Oh man. That is a sad story. I am in pain just thinking about it. Thanks for sharing so I can be scared into wearing sunscreen this summer.

How nice your hubbie loves you enough to part with one of his happy pills. BA wishes he loves him that much. I am glad he doesn't.

Oh Jillie. . . just reading your post made me hurt!!! Hang in there. Fyi, I love reading your blog!

Kimberly and Jonathan said...

Ha! The same thing happen to a lady at work yesterday! Ok not the exact same thing but she went out to the pool & decided not to wear sunscreen and fell asleep! She couln't even smile the next day her face was so beat red!!!

j+s said...

it was all worth it... lounging around. sorry your skin is so sensitive. and jon says i told all you guys... no one listens.

jill said...

Yes, I was warned by more than one. It is my own fault and I have should have listened. I have no one to blame but myself, dang.

Lizzy, Shelby and I went to "Classy Cuisine" for lunch in the Riverwoods. That is their chocolate s'more cookie. It was soooo good.

Marc said...

Hmmmm... Perhaps Beaver wasn't the most appropriate title to include on a post discussing "pleasure craft"

jill said...

You perv Marc. I guess I should have been more clear. Beaver, Ut

{lizzythebotanist} said...

nice, marc. nice.

tigerfoxbear said...

HEY! I helped Marc craft his response, and that is why it was so sweetawesomerad.

You can thank me too.

The Waites said...

Oh jilli didnt your mom always teach you to wear sunsceen. that happen to my sis last week in Ventura but her lips were so swollen. I just use the fake stuff till Willie tells me I look orange.

The Waites said...

how do you make that yummy cookie?

davidandsuzi said...

Jill, I know what you mean. I think everyone has had that happen to them one time or another. The stupid thing is, we easily forget and let it happen again!

Rachel and Gavin said...

Oh man that does not sound fun at all! I remember the ONLY time that I got fried in my life, was in Hawaii and boy was it really stupid of my part to lay out in the sun on one side for over 2 hours in the brutal Hawaii sun. Yeah it hurt and I swelled up and the worst part about it all, was that I had a fashion show (you know run way) to be in, and boy was I humiliated. Anyway, I'm super sorry, it is not fun at all.

Lee said...

i learned my lesson the hard way after two summers of a huge round blister on my nose. now i'm paranoid from getting sunburned and wear sunscreen all the time. hope you don't get the blisters, they're awful.

jill said...

I actually did have water blisters all over my legs and shoulders! It was sick.

Ashley Albright said...

I feel so bad for you, sunburns suck and I think it is hilarious about the pain killers...you know you liked it. Oh and what in the heck kind of drivers class did you go to with all those wierd people in it, i didn't even know you could bring your kids, I am dying! You always crack me up

jarv said...

I'm starting to rethink this whole skin cancer thing again too. I've decided a healthy glow is better than a red one. Don't ever estimate the power of the Beaver sun rays!
