Hugest Pet Peeve Ever, Or At Least For Today:

People who insist on remarking on your sunburn.

“Looks like you got some sun out there!”

Yeah, I know I got some sun. I know because I see it every time I glance sideways when I pass a reflective pane of glass and, for a split second, think, “HOLY SHIT, GIANT LOBSTER!” I feel it every time someone touches me or, hell, if a hard breeze blows. I know I look like a tomato with legs and a blond bob. Now go chew on some glass or something, please and thank you.

This is the most irritating kind of small talk you could ever make with me. Do not do it.

You have been warned.

    As someone who ONLY burns, I appreciate this more than you know. The other comment I always got, esp. in the 80s- “You are so pale”.

    I don’t tan. Rather, I turn a darker shade of pink, peel like a leper for a week, and reveal new skin with more freckles.

    Pale girls represent!

    You forgot to add random gay guys who press their cheek against your arm.
