Every year my dad says the same thing and every year it pisses me off.

'You need to go out in the sun more, build up a resistance to it', because every year if I go out in the sun I get badly burnt.

He makes out its all my own fault. I don't know maybe I'm just ****ing weird but I dislike summer ok. I hate feeling hot, I hate walking out and about in it and feeling even slightly sweaty and I dislike exposing my skin to the sun because I just burn and I often just end up feeling sick.

Clearly somethings wrong with me.

I'm sorry, CL. I've been that person, and felt utter joy at knowing that I'll be leaving for a home without screaming or diapers.

And in the meantime, I eat the cake.
I had to watch the birthday boy have his nappy changed too.

And I'm sunburnt.

your dad is an idiot because there is NO SUCH THING as "building up resistance" to the sun.

I'm sorry kayb! Even when you feel breaking up is the right thing to do, it often doesn't make it any easier. Hope you feel better about things soon.

And I'm sorry, Kat. I know exactly what you mean. I'm happiest in 70-75 degree weather, with a breeze, and often get asked why I don't "get some sun" (mostly by men family or friend). Because I get some sun poisoning too. I'd rather not break out in a rash, run a fever, and up my risk for skin cancer, all to not offend your senses.

Unless someone burns easy, they can't understand.

Thanks guys. It's good to know I'm not the only one who suffers like this. It's 25 degree Celsius here, I have no idea how that translates to fahrenheit.

We had archery out on the field today so I stayed in the shade as much as possible but my face and arms are now bright red and very sore. Neither of my parents were affected of course, though they stood in the sun all morning.

Also my mum especially has very dark red, weathered skin and I really do not want that personally.

It was a woman, and she did. She was only slightly weird, but I could tell she was one of those matter of fact types with a sort of flat personality. I hope the TV works for her for a long time. We explained the quirks to her and after looking it over she handed over the $40, we loaded it up and off she went. Bye-bye clutter.

25 C is 77 F.
While that's a pretty perfect, cool summer day for me, your dad is completely wrong to think you can build up "sun resistance".

kat, I'm the same way. Your dad is crazy. I wilt in the sun/heat and burn really easily.

Who knew looking for a tea pitcher on Etsy would turn into day 3 of searching for just the right one? I have 4,000 search results, that isn't helping.

once it gets past 23C/75F, i am not a happy camper. and i made the mistake of moving to the hottest part of Canada. ergo my post a couple of days ago about it being 100F/38C!



today is VERY cool and rainy (it's only 17C/63F) outside instead of the 30 with a humidex of 33 or 34 they told us to expect. we've barely had any rain, so this is badly needed.

This. My SO doesn't understand it but he's ok with me having to go back into the house after being outside for a few minutes when it's too hot.

Exact same thing for me. I start to puddle up when it gets past 75. It's 85 here right now, and still climbing. It reached 90 at 5pm yesterday. I was sitting under a covered picnic area in my friends yard, in front of a fan, while I wasn't wetting myself down with a garden hose. I had to. It stops the sting from bug bites, and felt wonderful to boot.

Well now I've just sat through dinner with both my mum and dad telling me that these days young people seem to get burnt more easily because they aren't outside as much and are always in at their computers. That your skin naturally over time tans/gets use to the sun so you don't burn as easily.

And I got to hear tales to how dad used to get so badly burnt as a kid he and his brother had to have ice baths.

Soooo - you did get burnt just as much then!?

I suppose I'm luckily to live here really. I remember when I was in NY during the hottest week they had seen for years a few years back.

I felt constantly sick the whole time. It was not fun lol. Well NY was amazing as long as I could stay in air conditioned rooms and the marvellously cool subway

I recently was met with eye rolling after I told my boss and coworkers that I try avoiding the sun since having precancerous moles removed. And these people are part of the medical community. I guess to hell with cancer, I need a tan! Curse my pasty self!
