Cover Up



Just like we give the Dinosaurs their catastrophic meteor, I think the cockroaches who will be overpopulating the planet a million years from now will point to inadequate sunscreen as the cause of our demise. They will uncover remains of a glorious picnic spread that some humans had enjoyed at Colt State Park on Memorial Day 2008. Although they will definitely find nothing that would constitute litter, they will piece together the imprint of several adult humans and their bicycles in the fossilized grass, a stray tortilla that flew from my nose when Chris Bull made me laugh, a drop of sunscreen their science would determine to be spf 15, and then somehow they would find this picture and connect the obvious dots: humans evolved far enough to develop a delicious snack chip, had good times, then burned their flesh off in the direct sunlight.

That's a nasty—and strange—burn.

Yikes, that looks like a nasty sandal burn..

Nasty is right. Unfortunately, the only thing I was wearing besides the sandals was a thong.
