You would think I'd learn. You would think I'd be hyper-vigilant. No. I thought that since it was spring, and not too hot, and I was only going to be out for a "little while" that I might just get a tan. And I DIDN'T PUT ON SUNSCREEN. So yes, I got my nice burn of the year. And I (hopefully) learned my lesson. Especially since I'm on my way to warmer climes.
Less than two weeks left until I leave for Texas, and other that the couple of areas that I burned, my skin remains lily-white. So today I went out and did something that I've never done before. For the first time in my life, I fake-n-baked. The girl at the tanning place was really nice, though she did recommend only 5min at a time every other day. Not sure how much of a base tan I'll get, but I'm hoping for at least a little protection from the intense heat I'm about to subject myself to.
Of course, knowing my talent, just watch me achieve a nice burn from my five minutes in a tanning booth!
