Before heading on vacation, I went to a tanning salon. I was under the light so long, the protection eye shades I wore left a big white circle around each eye. Gazing at myself in the mirror the next day I thought, "man, I look like a clown."
I had almost convinced myself I was overreacting until I was in line at the grocery store. I felt a tug at my shirt and looked down to see a toddler staring up at me, "Are you giving out balloons?" he asked.
