I know. I should start learning from that, shouldn’t I? Okay, okay, I’ll try my best.
I love you too. What kind of list have you come up with? Either way, I’m on my way as we speak.
You really should, sweetheart.
You’ll see for yourself when you get here, don’t worry. I’ll leave the front door unlocked so you can let yourself in — I’m upstairs in my room, wasting away into nothing due to my inability to get up and walk around my own house.
Still, I should have just trusted you and let it go when you said it wasn’t a good idea. You were right, obviously.
Oh! Oh, okay, that makes way more sense. I’ve spent the past few minutes trying to come up with a good solution to that but unfortunately, I got nothing even semi appropriate to suggest to you. My offer with the aloe still stands, though.
That tends to happen more often than not. Me being right, I mean. Still, don’t be sorry. It’s nothing to worry yourself sick over.
You’re ridiculous, and I love you. If you’re serious, then feel free to bring your handsome self over here whenever you’d like. I’ve been prescribed a long list of things to do in order to keep me on my toes, and I don’t think I can do it all alone.
Oh honey, I’m so sorry. I know you said swimming was a bad idea despite the sunblock and I shouldn’t have pushed and gosh. Can I make it up to you somehow? Help with the aloe, maybe?
Though, I am wondering… why can’t you sit down? I mean… we you were wearing a swimsuit, that should block the sun out for real, right?
Sweetheart, it’s fine. You didn’t give me the burn, anyways. The sun did. Next time, I’ll just need to use another coat or three to make sure nothing can go wrong.
.. Yes, it did, but the burn is on my lower back, right above where the waistline of my swimming trunks rest. This means my jean press against it, my shorts press against it, my underwear presses against it — there’s a lot of pressing against it, and sitting down aggravates the tension.
Cortisone cream, aspirin (or aspirin paste), cool baths, ice compression packs, and lots of water should also be added to your regimen, Kurt. Also, French film marathon—prescribed by yours truly, friendly neighborhood Dr. Abrams. You can keep me updated on your healing progression via text, e-mail, or fax.
Consider it all jotted down and added to my already lengthy list of self-treatments, Dr. Abrams. As for the French film marathon, I’ll need my Dad (or Blaine) to pick up the required movies for me, as I’m not in the best shape to drive. The seatbelt strap presses against my shoulders in the most uncomfortable way — it’s down right tragic, if you ask me.
blondesammy said: The sunburn can definitely make a person feel terrible for days. I hope you get some rest or are able to sleep, dude. I also read on Facebook that you can turn it into a tan by using like some type of oil. But..that was on Facebook.
Facebook is a pretty sketchy source when it comes to credibility, but I appreciate the support nonetheless. Truthfully, I don’t think I’m capable of tanning — I burn, and that’s simply that.
I’ve been feeling a little better lately, though, so I think I should be back in tip-top shape before the week is out. Can I assume your summer’s been a little less painful than mine?
rachelbstar said: Awww, feel better soon Kurt! I’ll try and stop by with some movies and we can get you back into shape in no time okay?
Thank you, Rachel. Its a work in progress, but i’m dealing with it as best as I can. Seeing your lovely face would certainly aid the healing process, though, especially since you’re offering so kindly.
However, when I thought I could tackle summer head on, I was very, very wrong. Somehow, Blaine managed to drag me to the beach, and even with my typical three coats of sun screen, I managed to get a burn that’s rendered me useless in every sense of the word. My skin’s already sensitive enough — add a peeling burn to my lower back and across my shoulders and I’m out of commission until it’s faded into something close to a tan (I’m not sure if I can actually tan, to be frank).
Hopefully, the vigorous amount of aloe I’ve been applying will help me get back in the game sooner rather than later, but at this point, who knows when I’ll be able to sit down without wincing. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers, friends. These next few days could be my last.
You back in Lima yet???????
You know it. I made it here as soon as the bell rang on Friday, but I’ve been severely delayed in making human contact due to the fact that it’s so hot outside. I can barely move a limb without feeling completely exhausted.
it’s a little cyst I need to cut our of my wrist
Not an issue. If you need any medical advice, let me know — I’m rather good at avoiding sickness when I need to.
A.. cyst? Oh, gosh. It’s nothing too serious, right? Just something they can remove to make you feel better?
It is way too hot out for not being able to swim. I wonder how the people in Texas feel. That is like one of the hottest places to be, right? Anyway, I am now off to the park with two rugrats. If you see us there with water balloons or water guns be tempted to join, please.
I have to agree with you wholeheartedly. When Summer came around, I thought I’d be spending my time relaxing and catching up on the down time I missed during the school year. However, I’m finding it impossible to do much of anything that’s not standing in front of my air conditioner while wishing for a rainstorm.
Heat aside, though, how’ve you been?
