Toasted like a Quizno's sub

Yeah, I'm burnt. Sunburnt. I was out in the sun too long on Friday. Like 9 hours, doing 4 soccer games. The last one was a close, close game. Went scoreless through 70 minutes of regulation and 20 minutes of overtime, and then went 5-4 on penalty kicks to decide it. Very competitive and lots of close chances. When I first got to the field at 7:30 in the morning it was really foggy out and the grass turf was damp and slippery. The sun burned through and dried things out by the start of the second game at 10 am.

I enjoyed it, but ouch. I burned my face, my neck, my arms below the short sleeve point, and my knees. Thank goodness the standard for referee socks is pretty high, so it's just the gap between the kneehigh socks and the shorts, but sunburn on the back of your knees makes crouching an extremely painful moment.

Yikes!
Ouch! Poor toasted pookah. I got sizzled really badly last year, out on the horse farm. Cooked so bad I blistered under the burn and got hives. It finally descended into the level of a serious burn after about 5 days; until that point it qualified as sun poisioning. So anyway, I know how you feel.

Take Benadryl. It helps the burn heal faster.
