This is the time of year when us white folk really shine. Summer sunlight pricks our delicate skin and leaves us radiant. Like a tomato on the vine or freshly bleached undershirt.
The only thing worse than walking outside in shorts for the first time is walking outside the day after.
The truth is, as much as I enjoy summer, sunshine, and s’mores, I really can’t do anything without sunscreen (zinc oxide?).
Sitting in the coolness of air conditioning, I wonder why anyone would risk going outside and interacting with the harmful rays of our yellow sun.
But, the rewards can be great [not super powers], the unfiltered access to nature in all its beauty (unless you have allergies).
Enjoy the sunlight responsibly, friends.
