Two weeks ago, Washington was still in winter mode. Acquiring a sunburn means the sun came out, and I had time to enjoy it. It also means I will soon be tan, and by tan I mean not ghostly white.
Another reason why my sunburn is making me happy is because it's just the right amount of burn. It's red, but not the lobster red. It's warm, but in a cozy way, not in an uncomfortable way. Aloe vera feels good, but I don't feel the need to reapply every 5 minutes.
So thanks for finally arriving summer. I think this sunburn calls for popsicles.
