Trashcan Cake

My brain has informed me that I am not allowed outside today because of my extremely sunburned face. Now I want to go outside.  I’m such a brat I even rebel against myself. Problem is, I react to the sun like a Vampire. I repel back and hiss a bit as my skin snaps and pops from the light. HISSSSS (snap crackle pop)! Gross. Ouch, I just smiled at that thought and hurt my face. I tried staying in the shade, but there was always something in the sunshine that attracted me like a racoon to a metal trashcan filled with day old cake that was nicely wrapped in plastic wrap therefor not actually touching any trash. You get the idea. I will still eat the trash cake, but not if it has touched trash. I have standards. Oh Man… what I would give to eat cake in the sun right now. Maybe tomorrow.

Don’t Make That Face Or It Will Stick

All I can think about is my face. I feel my face so much. I didn’t even think I was out in the sun that long, but apparently I was. It is so burned and swollen that I feel like my face is a irritating painful mask that I can’t take off. I am so grateful I am not a teenager right now, because I would be freaking out. I would be crying that I was a mutant monster and I would be hiding in my room thinking I would look like this forever. Thankfully I am an adult and know that it will not stay like this forever and will be much better in a few days. At least I think it will. I’m pretty sure…. ugh. It’s covered in Aloe vera right now, so I am going to just suck it up and live with my mistake for a few days.. two? Three? Oh man.
