Sigh, the morning after a long weekend

Although days like yesterday start my annual three-month mantra of why I need to move out of the DC area and to, oh, say, Alaska, I do enjoy the warm weather and being outside to play some games and hang out with friends. I was with heaps of friends yesterday at a massive barbeque at Lake Fairfax Park in Reston and we had a blast. Volleyball, soccer, frisbee, you name it people were playing. It was, however, completely shade-less, minus the few trees that lined the area of the park we had along the edges. Needless to say I’m sporting my typically beginning of summer sunburn although it’s not too bad.

It happens every year, though, after the first hot weekend in DC that inevitably people are walking around the office with sizzled necks, backs and arms – like the poor girl next to my office that everyone keeps walking by and asking if she’s okay. She’s a good sport, but she’s got to be miserable. I’ve counted about 7 miserable sun-burned fellows already, not including myself.

One of these destructive years I’ll learn to use sunscreen…
