Yesterday I knocked on doors, volunteering for a local politician. The day started out cloudy and I did not look at a forecast, so off I went with my headband newly arranged in a ‘daytime’ style (no bow at the ear). Within 10 minutes of being outside, the sun broke through. It got hot and steamy very quickly, and I got tired pretty quickly, but in total was outside for about two hours.
Trying to fall asleep last night, my head started feeling prickly and a little sore. OMGosh – I got sunburned?!! I always slather sunscreen on my face, and neck, and ears, and arms, but I’m not used to this — my few remaining head hairs provide no scalp protection. Gonna have to google this — spray on sunscreen? Time for the baseball cap (ugh)? Suggestions?
