Blinded by the White

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m as white as chalk. In fact, in the right light I am almost completely transparent. One of my all-time favorite things is when people comment on just how white I am. Things like “Wow, you’re white!” or “Girl, you need a tan”… because we all know redheads are notorious for their ability to lay out in the sun for a quick golden-brown coloration.

My dermatologist here in Florida recently expressed his genuine concern for my skin. He essentially told me I should be living in a cave and only coming out at night. Basically, I paid someone $30 to tell me I’m a vampire.

Since I enjoy seeing the sun every few days, I still choose to go outside during the day - after spending 20 minutes smearing mayonnaise (a.k.a. SPF 1200) all over myself of course.
