So my epic sunburn has entered the itchy as hell stage, which means the inevitable is about to happen… peeling. This brought on a serious discussion with some of my kickball teammates, the ‘That’s What She Said’, at our last game. (Yes that’s our teams name, yes we scream it all the time at inappropriate moments)
Ashley: Stop scratching, the more you scratch the worse the peel will be, rub instead.
Susan: NO Scratch! I love the peel, it’s the only bright side of a burn.
Ashley: That’s gross.
Susan: Oh come on! You’re telling me you don’t love the challenge of pulling a Perfect Peel.
Ashley: A what?
Susan: A Perfect Peel, a peel that goes the entire length of the burn.
Ashley: GROSS. And now I’m thinking of Austin Powers, great thanks a lot Susan!
Susan: I have no idea what you’re talking about.
Me: I DO, I KNOW! Goldmember peels of his gold skin and eats it! “Yesh, Shalty, Yesh that was good.”
Susan: UGH GROSS!! I don’t eat it, God Ashley!
Ashley: I didn’t say you did! Your description just made me think of it.
Susan: Great thanks, you have forever ruined the Perfect Peel for me.
Me: Ok, so I’ll just rub it.
Susan & Ashley: THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID!
Me: *sigh* go team.
I heard flicking a sunburn helps too!!
That was NOT COOL Ashley! it hurt 😦
Gotta go for the perfect peel. Its the only upside to a sunburn. It is also the only up side to a severe case of poison ivy, or a nasty pimple. Umm forget i said that last.
… um… actually… the discussion went to popping black heads after that… so… um… ya
i know how you feel :L
It’s been a LONG time since I had a sun burn (being a cave-dweller), but I remember the pure joy of peeling a good hunk of skin off. It felt like a real accomplishment. My sisters and I used to compare who had the largest whole piece of skin. Gross but cool! Thanks for the memories!
Dude!!!! Peeeeeellllll… all the way! but not with that image. ~Ew~ but yeah peeel, because then, it stops itching! 🙂
Mmmmmm stops itching you say? Ya I would definitely enjoy the itching to stop!!
Just keep lotion close by bc when you peel your skin underneath the dead skin can become dry 🙂 Lotion and peeling will do the body good.
I’ve gone through 3 bottles of lotion. I had to steal hubby’s yesterday because I ran out of mine… he was not happy.
