Today I am horrifically sunburnt. And I say horrifically not because it’s particularly painful, but more because it is incredibly embarrassing. I got this sunburn whilst skiing last week, and the thing is… it’s only on the bottom half of my face.
I was wearing ski goggles all week, so the area around my eyes was protected from the sun. My cheeks and mouth weren’t.
I showed up at work today looking like a fucking Electrode from Pokemon.
I showed up looking like Harvey Dent from The Dark Knight.
I showed up looking like a fucking fab ice lolly.
That last one is my favourite.
Who knew you could get sunburnt when it’s March, 4 degrees and snowing? Well, apparently, everyone else on the trip. They were all putting on sunscreen and I kind of, you know… didn’t.
It’s my youthful naivety at work. “Oh, I’ll be alright. I don’t burn.”
Yes. Yes I do. And I look like a fucking knob.
To be fair to me, it’s only bad because of the two-tonedness of it. If I was red all over then it wouldn’t look as stupid as it does. It’s just the red and white that’s funny – to literally everyone I saw today.
Hell, it’s even funny to me.
Until tomorrow, you’ve got to laugh…
