When I was a kid I remember playing outside and swimming in the resevoir on a weekend. The sun wasn’t really out that day it was a cloudy day. When we went home that evening I was burnt so bad I couldn’t sleep. I was miserable. The next few days I couldn’t wear a bra and back in the day I had what was called a tube top so it was strappless and didn’t have to worry about straps because it hurt so bad to have anything touching my shoulders.
We would lather my shoulders and back with aloe vera. I couldn’t handle taking the vinager bath because vinager makes me nauseaus and lightheaded. Well I ended up getting tons of tiny little blisters filled with water all over my arms and back. I would mess with the blisters on my arms because they didn’t hurt at first, they would burst and have a clear liquid in them, however the fresh skin underneath was sore.
I remember one day we were out at my aunt’s house visiting and my brother and cousin came up and we are wall talking and my brother and cousin at the same time slapped me on the back and took off running and laughing maniacally. I ran after them because it was the weirdest feeling having all those blisters bust at once and run down your back. They were such brats. Ever since that burn I have been careful about being out in the sun especially on an overcast day because you can burn worse.
