Fried Red Tomato

Who made the Red Man red…so goes the song on Peter Pan. Well, I know the answer. The Red Man probably stayed in the sun too long like I did at the Diva’s pool yesterday. It was great fun to float around in her swimming pool, visiting, and laughing with no one else around to see us in our swimsuits. No one was there to witness us wallow up onto our floaties, which had it been videoed could have won big bucks on America's Funniest Home Videos. I should have realized that the Diva is much darker than I and hangs out in the pool more often. While she turned a nice toasty brown, I turned a nice pink, which then turned to bright red last night. Toby said things like, "Everything is better fried…" He was also calling me Rosie. I just feel way too old for this stuff, and I feel stupid, stupid, stupid. Aloe Vera is my friend. Would any one mind if I went nekid today?

Just for your Okie information, "waller" is not in the dictionary. Instead you have to say "wallow." Who knew?

I feel yore pain... almost literally. As a fair skinned dude (former red head, turned VERY light blond... almost white, even) I've had more sunburns than I can count. I always get at least one per year, usually with my first extended road trip of the year with the top down. While aloe will temporarily cool ya, nothing really helps except time.

I'd have still used "waller." But then again, I take lotsa liberties with my spellin'.

wv: liachrug. Scottish, I think.

The Diva told me she was red too. I am red in places that I forgot I had.

Ouch! I'm fair too and have to be careful in the sun.

Not good to get burned. It can hurt so much. Take care. Glad you had fun, though.
