As the sales girl was wrapping up my purchase I exclaimed with great pride, "oh, my optometrist is going to be so proud of me!"
Did you know that fair skinned red heads are much more likely to develop macular degeneration? Which means that when I'm old I could go blind simply because I didn't wear sunglasses?
So not only does the sun quickly and mercilessly burn my skin to a crisp, it will probably make me blind in the long run!
I'm just not cut out for this global warming thing....
