Right now it’s 74 and gorgeous in our neck of the woods. So I decided around 1:45 this afternoon to take my work outside. Dumb, stupid move…really dumb, stupid move!

See, my “work” involved reading. The book I’m reading isn’t exactly a page-turner. In fact, it’s got some pretty downright boring parts. Those parts led to a sleepy state. That sleepy state lasted until my phone rang. At about 2:45 this afternoon.

Let’s just say a 47-year-old old coot ought not to be looking for something with the cooling, soothing properties of healing aloe. I can’t remember the last time I was this sunburned! I’m going to pay for that little nap for a while!
