Does your face hurt? Because it’s killing me. I love elementary school humor. I remember using that joke when I was in elementary school and my daughter has now taken to using that joke to lift my spirits. The simple answer, yes. It does hurt. Like the worst sunburn of my life and getting nastier everyday with the chemo.
Cabin fever has definitely set in. The walls are closing in and it is only day 9 of 30. My wife and daughters have been incredible so I persevere because of their love and because this too shall pass. It is weird though, spending this much time at home. I love our house, it is truly a home that represents all the best parts of our family. We are a work in progress and so is our house. To that end my wife has been looking on-line at bathroom designs which begs the question; wanna come over and help my wife choose a new toilet? By the way, who knew toilets were that expensive, not this guy. My wife and I were looking at those pricey commodes on-line today while listening to our favorite jazz station. We like music in this house, all kinds of music. Yesterday it was hair bands, today it was jazz and tomorrow I think perhaps a 70s groove. We stream Pandora wirelessly around the house, I like the service. While listening today a commercial came on for tanning beds at a Minnesota salon. They were offering a special deal. Are you picking up the irony here. TV dude at home for skin cancer chemotherapy hears a tanning bed commercial. Seriously? Tanning beds are still a thing? Unplug em, crush em at the junkyard and move on.
I think a lot about sun safety. Not to the point of becoming a sun safety vigilante. At least not yet. But if I did, and I am not saying I would…I could pick up a cape, some tights a mask and voila Captain Sunblock! I could zoom around the land of 10,000 lakes spraying sun block on unsuspecting sun worshippers. Meh, too much work. Besides, I don’t look that good in tights. Sun safety is quite simple. It is all about being smart. Join me as I throw away the cheap hats and nasty no good sun tan lotions. Come on, follow me to sun safety land! Wait, listen, do you hear it? The buzzer you hear in the background is the preach-alert…I will heed its warning and step down off my soapbox, for now. Tomorrow I am gonna talk about Sunblock and SPF clothing…The kind that dermatologists use for their families and the kind that my family and I now use.
I will also talk about chicken wings. I love chicken wings. Spicy, delicious chicken wings…my great friend Stuart is bringing over wings for lunch on Friday. He is a good guy that Stuart.
Tanning bed commercial, are you effing kidding me?
Thanks for stopping by, end of day 9. Look for another post with red, splotchy face pics later tonight 🙂
