I somehow got burned to a crisp through all this. Since I've spent most of the pre-season in bike shorts before the real sunshine hit, I developed what Ace dubbed "Neopolitan legs": brown tanned knees, burned pink thighs, white hips. My chest also got nailed, due to my forgetfulness to put sunscreen there, and so I now have a perfect outline of my bikini top in ouch-tastic fuschia. I was accused of trying too hard to color-coordinate.
I also managed to stab my finger from one of those corn cob skewers. Summer is dangerous; be careful out there, folks!
