Human Snake

I remember when I was younger my brother and I would go swimming in the nearby pool but he always forgot sun lotion.

I myself really didn't have to worry about it because I tanned more than burnt like he did.

I would always laugh when he would start to get red like a tomato and he would just give me this really dirty look.

Of course I always had to take extra sunblock with me so that I could put some on him before he would actually burn to a crisp.

Although one time he went alone and when he came back mom and I could not believe our eyes.

He was bright red from head to toe and all he could do was say it hurts. He had forgotten his sunblock and I wasn't with him to put it on him or remember it.

The next day he started to peel like a snake and I thought it was hilarious. All over his body you could see blobs of skin just falling off and he couldn't even lay down he was burnt so bad.

Now he knows how bad the UV rays are for him and to take care.
