In the word of Oingo Boingo, "Sweat!"

I've been bad this summer — and at other times before it — at wearing sunblock.

I don't mean wearing it badly by, like, spreading it on my underwear or something like that. I mean not using it enough in general. When I burned the top of my left arm a month ago on a road trip because, duh, sunlight gets in through the car's side window, I remembered this is dumb. And I have some, plus when it runs out I can buy some, and...hey!...it's a way to get out and sweat.

I could sweat more.

So I went out today, because I had a library errand (one book to pick up, one book to return) and wearing sunblock meant I wouldn't need to wear a hat or cap — I wasn't in the mood for a hat or a cap — and once I was done at the library, I wander-walked. I stopped at a couple of parks and read for a little bit at each one, in shade of course, then moved on. I was out longer than I would have been had I not lotioned up, and after I got home I indulged in a quick, cool shower.

I won't tell you all the ways I sweated today. *grins*

In honor of sweat, here's a song about it.

    I think I should wait until I have something better to brag about.

    I think it's okay to talk about your life, if you have something you want to share, even if you are doing well.

    I've been serving myself to watch this one day.
