Melanin!

April 7, 2010

Another Wednesday! Would you look at that!

I stared at myself in the mirror for a while this morning, trying to put my finger on why I looked so suddenly different. Is my face skinnier? Hm, unfortunately, no. Is my hair any drastically shorter than when I cut it last week? Nope.

And then I realized.

OMG, I no longer look like I’m dead.

I am a far, far, far, far, far (yes, five fars) cry from tan, but my dilligent efforts to stick my face up to the sun at whatever moment possible (walking to the metro, driving down the highway) has apparently helped take away that nasty white reflective gleam. I look normal. Healthy. Like a living, breathing human being. I even have some freckles.

And it is so wonderful.

I’ll be back later, but for now my coffee break involves sitting on the Starbucks patio furniture for another 10 minutes of Vitamin D.
