    I know how she feels, used to get thise kind of sunburns all the time. But that was when I was young and stupid and before they figured out that the sun can cause cancer. Now I try to avoid those kind of burns by using my sunscreen religiously.

    Looks like diggit got his(?) wish for lobster skin.

    You can believe that, when I went to the beach with my girlfriend, I tried my best to make sure she didn’t burn. A guy’s gotta think ahead.

    A burn like that is no joke. Painful in the extreme and no relief because it’s all over. Try laying down on a bed with an all-over (or almost) sunburn.

    After partying all day and riding in a car all night, I fell asleep (passed out?) on the deck of a sailboat.

    I lived in Hawaii for three years and never got a burn like that.

    Toronto isn’t the best place to get acclimated to tropical sun.

    First time I went to the beach, I used sunscreen. Thought I’d gotten every place that would be exposed.

    Except the tops of my feet. That or the sand got rid of it.

    Was fine except those two spots burned reeeeeeaaaaalllyyy badly.

    It was a lot worse than a close encounter with a deep fryer a couple years later.

    Bah, the beach. If the sharks don’t get you, the sun will…

    Ouch! Got a burn in Rome 3 years ago, forgot to put sunscreen on the top of my back. Took ages to get good. (didn’t find any aloe vera in any of the drugstores either, except for something meant for drinking, yeacch!). Now you can get a burn spray that works wonders, I think it’s made of aloe vera and tea tree oil mostly.

    I fell asleep on the beach once. Despite sunblocker I got a serious burn. Could hardly walk and had problems wearing clothing for nearly a week and my skin peeled for a month.

    catlady1: I went to one of those all-inclusive resorts once and had problems wearing clothing for nearly a week after I came home… even though I never went outside (bleepin’ unlimited buffet…)

    Can you believe people go to tanning salons?

    I live in Spain and work outside all year, no sunburn if you do it slowly.

    Unfortunately I’ve gotten the bad burns before. One year in college I went on a trip for spring break to the Bahamas and fell asleep in the sun. The sun there’s a lot worse than the Mid-Atlantic that I was used to. It was so bad that I passed out in the grocery store that evening. Not good…

    @Pprey - It also depends on your skin. My husband is from Spain and we visit a lot. My oldest child and I get pink first, no matter what kind of sunscreen we use, while my husband and youngest child get brown.

    There’s nothing else quite like burning the top of your head when you have a male-pattern hairline. I wear hats a lot nowadays.
