Last night I missed my date with George, all due to a nasty little sunburn.
Last Saturday for "my" birthday Jaci's friends took me canoing down the river. It's been a while since I've been canoing so it was something different and fun. All in all not a bad way to spend the day, and a really great excuse to get drunk. Seeing how Jaci and I are both very fair-skinned I applied plenty of sunscreen, or so I thought. I even reapplied every half hour during our 5 1/2 hour trip.
You'd think that with all that sunscreen ( I should've bought stock in the stuff) that I'd still be the same pasty white color that I started out as. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. I did a pretty good job of applying sunscreen but missed a very, very important area... MY BOOBS! At first I didn't think the burn was all that bad. It was only a little bit red after all. It got worse, much worse. I had to cancel my date with George last night, and instead took an a very expensive trip to the ER. It appears that my "little" sunburn is in fact a 2nd degree burn and was infected. 3 prescriptions and a lot of embarrassment later I'm back at home. BY MYSELF! Totally not the way I had planned to spend my night.
Ever since this damn switch, transformation, curse, or whatever you want to call it, I've been pretty pissed off. I mean my life wasn't the best but it sure was better than Jaci's boring life. I know Trip's been wanting my advice on girl stuff and I've been ignoring him, mostly because I still blame him for this. Give me some time, I'll forgive him eventually - I just can't stay mad at him forever. I don't know why this happened to me but I've decided to play with the cards I've been dealt.
So, I've taken it upon myself to liven things up a bit. Jaci used to stay home on the weekends or go out with her friends to the movies. Me, however, I like to party so I've been hitting bars in search of fun and adventure. Thank God Jaci's 21! I must mention that finding fun and adventure in a small town is nearly impossible. Every weekend since I returned to Iowa I've been "out on the town." This will be the 1st weekend that I haven't gotten to have any "fun" since Maine, if you know what I mean. I'm NOT happy at all!
In the words of Baz Luhrmann... "If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it... Trust me on the sunscreen."
