Addendum to a Lemon a Day
We forgot one of our very favorite medical tidbits. An American friend of ours has been working out at a gym. He met a friend there who was helping him get into shape. (No, he didn’t ask him to help him, this guy just took it upon himself.) This friend saw our friend’s pale skin and noticed some wrinkly areas around his neck and arms. His suggestion was that he needed to get out in the sun more, so that the sun would tighten up his skin. Now this particular friend has 15 or 20 years on me, and it has taken the sun 50 years or so to loosen up his skin into the condition it is in now. I can’t imagine a couple of afternoons at the beach are going to straighten it all back out.
