Muddy Water Sunburns

May 31, 2011 at 8:59 AM 2 comments

After spending the better part of yesterday swimming in a pond with my cousin I have the first sunburn that I have had in a really long time. I call it my “Muddy Water Sunburn” and it’s beautiful. Ha ha! It really doesn’t burn all that bad, but it’s burnt just enough that it is like a stamp of the memory on my body. My cousin has one too, from the day before, but it’s worse. Seriously, it looks like somebody (or something) painted her pastel pink — but only on the front. My sunburn is just like little shoulder pad shaped burns on my shoulders and that’s about it.

The last time I had a sunburn was horrible. I passed out twice within one application period of aloe, couldn’t hug people for a whole week (I was traumatized!), had to let my mother change my clothes for me because I couldn’t bend my shoulders at all, and occasionally I would become extremely nauseated. That was my Apocalypse Sunburn. My Muddy Water Sunburn has absolutely nothing on Mr. Apocalypse.

I feel alive. Every time I see or feel my Muddy Water Sunburn I think about swimming in the dirty pond water in the middle of a small county that neighbors my own, with all the area kids there as well, sharing quarters to have enough money to buy one HUGE box of French Fries that we all shared, and basking in the sun. We were truly like a community of people, barely knowing each other but sharing stories and food nonetheless. It was brilliant!

Happy (Sunshine-y) Adventures,

I’m Tweeting (Yikes!)

  • So, I started going by my middle name in college because I've always liked it better. Now I'm Renée, and can be tweeted at "teafaellana." 3 years ago
  • I keep reading fanfics to tide me over until #OUaT is back. I can't wait to see more character development of Regina! #EvilRegals 4 years ago
  • This has somehow been the best and worst Thanksgiving I've ever had, all at once. 4 years ago

Heather loves hats that are designed to look like cute animals, fairy wings, cheese pizza, swimming in ponds, roller blading, taking silly self-portraits, learning, spending time with people, and just about everything else too. Heather does not love ... well, there isn't a lot that she doesn't love. You can probably figure it out after a little while!
