Then - I skipped sunblock lotion and used to lay on the dock and flip every 30 minutes. Y'know, for an "even" tan.
Now - 4 biopsies, 2 skin carcinomas removed, and $$$ medical bills later ... I wear SPF70. And stay in the shade. :-(
Then - I wore a small visor to keep my long tresses from blowing over my eyes as I drove the boat.
Now - I wear a huge, wide-brimmed hat over my quite short hair ... all the time. See above.
Then - I wore sunglasses because the sun was bright.
Now - I wear sunglasses because the sun is bright. And squinting makes all my wrinkles way more pronounced.
Then - my shorty wetsuit fit.
Now - not so much. (but hey, it did a bang-up job of keeping the water OUT!!! small mercies...)
Then - I could ski forever and ever without falling.
Now - I still don't fall, but I only ski til my muscles give out ... roughly 5 minutes (or less?) after I begin.
Then - My muscles screamed and ached the day after I skied.
Now - the same. Some things don't change. ;-)
