We went to Jones Beach on Friday, July 4th, 2003, a.k.a. Independence Day, and I put suntan lotion everywhere but my back. Boy, that was dumb. I now feel like I have a fried pancake permanently affixed to my back. It’s not fun but it can be funny. For instance, taking a shower this morning, I could increase the temperature 10 degrees on my front and decrease it 10 degrees on my back. Also, I can see the effects of walking without my moving my arms; they’re minimal. Lastly, I’ve found that I’m getting a good deal of work done because work requires sitting while sleeping requires lying on my back.
