Wordful Wednesday: How To Treat A Sunburn

By | June 29, 2011

I’m thinking about changing my Wordful Wednesday to What Matt Did Wednesday, but then again I don’t know. Such an act would encourage behavior that, though blogworthy, might not make my life any easier. We’ll see.

Last week, he texted me a picture of himself in front of the Colosseum. It was of the neener neener neener type of texts.

This week, he got his consequence.

And I really had nothing to do with it. In fact, I am terribly sorry that he must endure this punishment; however, it’s made our week more interesting.

Anyways, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you The Sunburn and the Remedy, Matt Style.

Matt with his mama. She applied the cloths.

So basically, for about two hours, Matt stood in the kitchen layering ice-cold cloths on his chest and back. And drank two big beers. Whether it was the cold cloths, or the alcohol, we don’t know. We just know it helped.

And that is how Matt treats a sunburn. Have any other home remedies we might add?

    Ouch! I bet that was pretty painful! I always layer on the after burn aloe gel when I burn.

    Sounds like that helped, the sunburn must have really hurt.

    Ha! I know–that was the one thing we forgot in the whole ordeal. This burn actually lasted about 8 days. He was so miserable and now everywhere he goes he leaves a huge pile of DNA around.

    i myself got a sunburn this week…
    my favorite remedy & a summer must have (with a pool in the backyard & beach nearby) is frozen (ice) cubes of aloe vera.

    Hmmm. We should have tried the frozen cubes! For some reason he hates aloe vera. We actually put calomine lotion on it like 50 times a day because it was so itchy!

    Holy cow, that must have been quite the sting. I’m thinking the couple of beers didn’t hurt. ????
