Crustacean Resemblance

Sarah Alef on Tuesday, 26 June 2007. Posted in Student Life

I currently resemble a member of the crustacean family, specifically, a lobster.  

I'm normally albino white, but when I went water skiing this weekend, I was exposed to a LOT of sun.  Unfortunately, I'm also allergic to 90% of sunscreens out there, so my preventative options are limited.  I guess the sunscreen I used wasn't quite effective enough.  Also, since I went skiing and fell about 15-20 times, the gripping mechanisms in my hands are absolutely shot, making it REALLY difficult to do things like open doors.  And carry things.   And also drive.

In the meantime, my family is laughing uproariously at me, because not only am I a rather flaming red, but I'm constantly clenching and unclenching my hands, making my resemblance to a lobster even stronger.  

Just to be safe, I think I'll be avoiding seafood resturants for a while.
