The Hole in the Ozone Layer Must Be Bigger


June 24, 2009 by Marj Hatzell

My son is reading this book about fossil fuels and environmental concerns and now doesn’t want me to put gas in the car.  Or drive anywhere.  Or use any electricity.  Next thing you know, he will start channeling my husband and turn off the lights while using the bathroom.

Also?  I think he is on to something because yesterday we went to the pool and I used sunblock #70.  I still got pink and slightly darker.  We were there AN HOUR.  I reapplied halfway through.  Either it is irritating my skin (probable, because my skin is a big, fat baby) or the sunblock makers, THEY LIE.

In the fall, if I am no longer snow-blinding people with my leg skin, we’ll know why. It’s because the polar ice caps are melting, I have melanoma and J&J is ripping me off by putting smelly toilet water in their bottles and calling it sublock.

Just sayin’.

As you were.

    I think I did see a news segment where people did tests on the popular sunblock products and found out that most of them did not provide the SPF protection they claimed to.

    Which ones, I don’t remember. I don’t use sunblock, but I do slather it on Emma. She has delicate Scandinavian skin. I am part Sicilian, so I am naturally tanned.

    I think something is certainly different. My dad and I were just talking about this the other day. I am Latin and have been fortunate enough to have NEVER experienced sun burn or peeling from the sun. However, this summer I’ve gotten burnt badly 2 times already. My dad (step father) is Caucasian and has dealt with burns before. This year though he has told me that it has been really different. He explains it almost like a “flash fry” then his skin seems to peel off everywhere he got sun. Both of us haven’t been spending anymore time outdoors than usual. My sister in law is a nurse too and she has witnessed a lot of odd cases at her hospital that she thinks are related to sun exposure. Whatever that means, she didn’t elaborate, but something is certainly not right.
