And now, my muscles are seizing from sunburn

    Took the family to the beach today. Weather was perfect and it was fun as hell. Nothing like taking young kids to the beach and Mrs. Bubbler had a great time too.

    So did everyone else at the beach, because I was shirtless. Based on the agape faces I saw, it was like someone was playing the bass line from Sly & The Family Stone's Thank You For Talking To Me Africa in slow motion as I sauntered through the sand. Meeeowww! :-X :-X :-X

    But therein lies the problem. I am sunburn as a motherfucker right now. This is not good because my skin is fair. How fair? If there is a European ancestry that lacks pigment, chances are, it's in my blood. No Scandanavian blood, but I got an honorary degree from The University of Helsinki for my whiteness.

    Additionally, I haven't been sunburn on my body in a while, I forgot about the various stages of sunburn pain: the chills, the muscle tightness.

    I still haven't totally recovered from my last sunburn, when I spent several hours in Washington D.C. heat back in June. It's like God took a magnifying glass and tried to burn a hole on the crown of my head, so I hope this is just a short-term thing.

    Minor pain sucks.

    If you're not blistering, you won't be in bad shape. Just put the aloe vera on and you'll be fine soon. Unfortunately, I have a lot of experience in this area.

    Oh I won't blister. I'm just a pansy.

    My mom once went to one of my day baseball games -- then spent the next few days unable to get out of bed. Her blisters had blisters. Suck it up, ya sissy.

    Somewhere, a Speedway clerk just giggled after making his drop and doesn't know why...

    While I'm bitching and moaning, walking uphill in sand is hard.

    Ah, well then I still feel for you some. Have you ever blistered? It's a bitch. Especially if they tell you they have to cleaned with peroxide or whatever the hell it was. That was a miserable week or so.

    I got sunburned today, too. But lucky me, it'll turn to a nice golden brown day after tomorrow. [/bragging]
