i'm fair and freckled yet spent a good portion of my life lying in the sun. i no longer do that, but don't wear sunblock anymore when outdoors. i do often wear a hat though.
now that my d-levels are more normal i don't think i burn as much as i previously did.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
– Ernest Hemingway
