What I Meant to Say Wednsedays

WIMTS


I've been waiting for the best day to post this. Today is the day. About a week ago, I mustered up the courage to wear capris to work. I know, they are just capris. You see, I'm pale. But, I was proud of myself for showing some leg.
So, I'm sitting at my desk and the girl across from me says, "Wow! Your legs are really pale!". Here is what I said, "Thanks for the info. I had no idea that my legs were insanely pale." I then turned around and started my work.
Here is what I wanted to say:
Hello! I'm German, Irish, and English. A total mix of all the palest ethnic backgrounds ever! Thanks Caption Obvious for pointing out to me that I'm albino white. I really had no clue. When you have a skin cancer scare at 26 years old, we'll talk. I'm sorry I don't feel the need to lay out in the sun or tanning bed for hours on end. Plus, you are Cambodian! What do you know about being pale? You have a super nice color year around."
I could also put what I really really wanted to say. But, I think I thinks a little mean and I do actually like the girl who was harassing commenting me on my blindly white legs.

I love when people do that for exactly the reasons you said. Like oh my gosh I had NOOOOO idea!! That's amazing, they were tan this morning! Better hit the death bed!

LOL...you are hilarious!!! When I was 20 weeks pregnant, I had a mole removed from my face because it doubled in like a year. When they got the results back, they said it was pre-cancerous. There is no way I will lay out in the sun again.

I normally keep the comebacks to myself. I'm surprised that I was able to say what I did.

And posts like this make me feel good about being the "whitest mexican ever." A cancer scare at 24 does NOT sound fun!!

Thanks for playing! (:

Girl rock those pasty white legs!!! I'm 30 and have Melanoma. The worst form of skin cancer. I was diagnosed when I was 28. No fun at all!! I'd rather be here ALIVE rocking pasty ass white skin then be laid out with a nice tan in a casket. I am very fair skinned, red headed, blue eyed & Irish so I've never been a big sun worshipper. I did the tanning bed thing for awhile in my late teens. Man if I knew then what I know I NEVER would have set foot in one.

Have a good day!!

I live in Iowa and as a kid/teen I spent my summers detassling corn fields. I'd start the season pasty as all get out and by July, I was soooo brown. Looking back, I didn't look as good as I thought. I'm ok with some color, but I'm not going to risk seeing my son grow up just so I look good in shorts.
