Okay people, I say this cause I love you all… SUNSCREEN!!
Use that shit, and not the low numbered shit, I’m talking the good shit, 30+ baby!
Put that shit on everyday, sometimes twice a day, fuck it, reapply that shit hourly!!
And it doesn’t matter if you live in a sunny place or a cloudy as hell place!
I’m a perfect example:
Portland Spring 2013, notice a little sore on the tip of my nose, I ignore it and it goes away, couple weeks late it’s back, I ignore it and it goes away, repeat until Spring 2014 in Arizona.
Hubby: What is wrong with your nose!?
Me: Wow, thanks. What’s up with your eyebrows?!
Hubby: Seriously babe, you’ve had a scab on your nose for like ever!
Me: It’s not my fault, it just wont go away!!
Hubby: Well stop picking at it!
Me: I DON’T!!
Hubby: Well it’s not going away, maybe you pick it in your sleep.
Me: HOW DARE YOU SIR! I am a lady.
Hubby: Whatever, get it checked out.
So I did, went to a dermatologist and it only took her 1.7 seconds to figure out what it was… Cancer. FUCK, not malignant, but still serious enough that they cut off a sample and then flash freezed the rest to kill it dead.
And let me tell you, that shit hurts. The little assistant lady tells you it’s just gonna be a slight prick and then some mild burning. She LIES! It felt like she cut my entire fucking nose off and then pulled molten lava down the wound. I got your slight prick and mild burning right here lady!!
Also, the doctor lady mentioned that if I used my 30+ sunscreen on my face daily then I might see some lightening in my facial brown spots… huh… I used to call those my adorable little freckles… but no, apparently they’re a bunch of fucking sun damaged disfigurations… great.
Lesson learned? SUNSCREEN PEOPLE!!! EVERY DAY!!!
