Last night, trying without much success to fall asleep, I felt for the first time really Burned. Like, sunburn burned.
Believe me, that was a familiar feeling. Some of you who were also kids in the 50′s and 60′s will remember the homemade “suntan lotion” of baby oil and iodine? That was more my dad’s poison than mine, but my friends used to compete as to who could peel bigger strips of skin off my back.
I know, disgusting, ain’t it? Well, I’ve had the skin cancers to pay penance for it ;)
Well, I got up, smeared some (more) Aquaphor on myself and took some Ibuprofen. After tomorrow I can use Silvadene.
Get to healin’.
