My sheets are blue.
I’ve got plaid ones.
Mine are a nice beige. I am whiter than that.
The docs tell us that sun is bad for us, but, then, they give us prescriptions for vitamin D because we’re not getting enough sun. What the heck are we supposed to do?
JARVIS, it’s tricky, isn’t it? Fifteen minutes a day is enough exposure for most people. You can probably get that much walking from the car to the office, or, if you’re a Plugger, hanging the clothes on the line.
Avoid too much sun, don’t overeat, get plenty of exercise, don’t smoke, don’t take unnecessary risks, get enough sleep, etc, and you die anyway. Point, life is too short to not enjoy a few small risks.
Yet another reminder of Seinfeld’s “Good naked/bad naked” dichotomy.
Speaking from having the experience of having had melanoma skin cancer, I am a strong proponent of being moderate in skin exposure to the sun. I was lucky that it was caught in time, but not all are. That damage came from years before when I was a foolish teen thinking that a tan was the most important thing in the world.
I agree with Janice that one more tan at her age probably won’t hurt, but now days there are other means to get that tan look without damaging your skin for life. Just sayin………
Oh, oh. Arlo doesn’t spin Janice’s wheel anymore?
Seeing Arlo’s belly button reminds me of the story that Mort Walker, creator of Beetle Bailey, once told. He drew a strip that showed Miss Buxley in a two piece bathing suit and showed her navel. Apparently, this had never been done in the history of American comics. The headquarters of his distribution syndicate removed it. He drew it in several more times only to have it removed each time. Finally, he drew Miss Buxley with six navels. The syndicate finally gave in and navels have been in the comics ever since.
Arlo likes Janis in the suit, just not in the sun.
Looks like Arlo is using a trick of Wally’s from Dilbert – where he tries destroying Goatees with his “uncoolness”
I spent a lot of time tanning when I was young. I had skin cancer twice by the age of 55, caught early before it could spread. Whew!
I’ve always heard it was the time we spent out in the sun when we were kids that leads to problems in our older years.
Many, many bad sunburns as kid near the So Cal coast. Doomed, I guest. 75 now.
I had two when I was young, which I found out later could lead me to have skin cancer much later in life.
I have always maintained I could kill the bare midriff fad all by myself — simply by adopting it.
I have not done so because it was one of my favorite fads.
