Peeling Off a Band-Aid

Peeling off a Band-Aid hurts more than getting hurt. You get cut, you get a Band-Aid, you apply it to the wound, you wait a couple of days, and then you try to peel it off. But the adhesive that they use is designed to latch onto your body hair and rip it out. You can take your time and slowly peel off the Band-Aid and prolong your agony, or you can pull it off with one swift motion and potentially rip off your scab, which would require another Band-Aid and you repeat the cycle. Peeling off a Band-Aid is like unwrapping a Christmas present, except you expose a festering wound instead of getting something you want.

Sunburned On My Head

I made the mistake of shaving my head and getting a tan the other day. Well, to be honest, I didn’t really get a tan… I got sunburned. I basically turned myself into a lobster for a few days. The red is starting to go away, but now I have the unfortunate side effect of peeling. I’m peeling on my back, chest, arms, and on the top of my head. And I’ve noticed that when your head starts peeling, it looks like you have dandruff. Really, really bad dandruff. Giant flakes of dead skin flutter to the ground every time I run my fingers through my hair. I tried putting some lotion on my head to keep it from flaking, but it didn’t work. All it gave me was lightly scented dandruff. And I still have to keep on explaining to everyone that I already use Head & Shoulders, and that I just got sunburned on my head.
