#137 – Ankles

with 6 comments

Seriously, they are blinding. You know how bad light reflected off of snow is? Well, times that by a thousand and you might be in the ballpark for how powerful my Irish skin can get. A mini-goal of mine is to work on a solid ankle tan, but I doubt anything will happen. I burn, and that’s it. It goes from white to red back to white. How that works is beyond me.

Do you tan? Do you fake tan? Do you turn into a walking strip of bacon under the sun for an hour? If so, yuck. And, really, why does all this matter so much?

  1. I live in AZ – so igots me some culla, bitch! Sometimes I am lazy about getting ready for the pool, so I got to a tanning place. I exercise outside for more. I use bronzer to add to that sun-kissed look. I’ll be dead from skin cancer while your pale ankles are still blinding the geriatrics at your apartment complex.

  2. For some reason, my ankles are extra bright this summer. Maybe I should move to AZ?

  3. Like you, I am Irish. But, I am also Portuguese, so I am naturally bronzed. [:-{D} While I do live in Arizona like Bitsy, I try to stay out of the sun; it hurts my eyes.

    What bothers me more than your pale anklage (Yep, I made that up) is how you seem to be pirouetting in that last slide.

  4. I call that the “Dance of the Blinding Sun-God.” Knocks out old folk within the first few steps…

  5. I’m Irish,and also like Patrick I’ve got a bit of latin heritage. That being said, if I spend any extended amount of time in the sun I just come out of it looking like kool-aid man. OH YEAAAAAAH!
