I don't get sun burned. I grew up on a ranch and my fathers family is Hungarian. I was 18 and in Hawaii when I got my first sun burn. In the last couple of years things have changed and I have not changed with it. Whether it is the liver and associated medications or just aging, I now get sunburns.
I had forgotten this fact or more specifically denied it this weekend. As I was trussed up like a Christmas turkey in the corset and general saloon girl outfit many parts of my body that are not used to sun got a great big shot of it. Everyone of my weekend sisters tried to get me to put on sun block or at least be reasonable. I would have none of it because I don't get sunburned.
At one point in my life that was true. I was a generally naked outdoor kid. I lived outdoors as much as possible and never had a problem. Now the universe has shifted without my consent. I have a Taurus ascendant and change does not come easily to me.
I have been miserable for two days. I am bright red and almost purple in places. I have had homeopathic burn gel on it for several days. I even consulted my personal aloe plant and got permission to "cut... but cut sparingly" a large bit. I have only ever had to use it on small alchemical burns and so it did not occur to me that I need to fillet it first. So now I have a lovely scratch on my right breast from a pokey park of the plant. OOOOOOOPS. Slight technical error. But don't worry I put aloe on it :)
It is finally starting to calm down but I am going to have to shift my paradigm. I do get sunburns and with any luck the next time something like this comes up, I will remember this lesson VIVIDLY.
