hot shower for sunburn

A friend gave me some great advice about sunburns. She said I should take a hot shower with the water as hot as I could stand it. I hadn't heard of this before, and it just sounded painful. And it was. But it worked! The hot shower took the constant sting out of the burn, and it's been much better since. Who knew? (I'm guessing you shouldn't try this for very serious burns, I'm not a doctor, YMMV, etc, etc.)

sunscreen reminder

Note to self: sunscreen is very important, especially for a ghostly pale person like yourself. If your wife takes the sunscreen to another location, stop everything and go buy more. Especially before you spend the day at the coast—or you will end that day in pain. The Sunburn Threat Level in late June is lobster red. I repeat, sunscreen.
