The Joys of Aging

So, tomorrow will be the two-week anniversary of my Sports-Day Sunburn, and my arms are still peeling. I remember that when I was a kid, I would get horrendous sunburns on my back and neck etc, and after a few days it would peel off and I would be fine. I don't recall it ever taking so frelling long.

Of course, it's also not peeling the same way as before. Then, it was like a snake shedding its skin, big chunks of burnt human-rinds sloughing off of me. Now, it's like my arms need Head and Shoulders.

Frankly, it's beginning to frustrate the heck out of me. I can't wear short-sleeved shirts (because the students comment on my arms when I do), and since it's still Summer here (well, I guess not technically after yesterday), that's a problem.
