Last week, some friends and I decided to take a trip to the beach. We left before the sunshine came up, loaded up my car with drinks, popcorn, and our favorite playlist, and headed for the beach. We arrived shortly after noon, and we were so happy to be at the beach, we skipped even checking in our hotel room. We had a great time playing in the waves, throwing a frisbee, drinking beers, and simply spending time together. But after a few too many beers, I fell asleep in my beach chair and awoke to the unpleasant reality that I had forgotten to apply sunscreen and was covered in burns..I checked into the hotel and took a shower. Afterwards, I rubbed aloe all over my burns, laid on the bed, and cranked the cooling system as cold as it would go. The cool breeze from the cooling system was so soothing to my burnt skin, that I was almost thrilled that I was sunburnt.The comfort from the cooling system allowed me to relax and forget about being burned in the first place; I awoke many hours later to my friends returning from the beach, amazed at how chilly the cooling system was. The next morning, after resting all night in the cool cooling system, I was able to enjoy a full day at the beach, complete with sunscreen, of course. Next time I rent a hotel at the beach I will make sure that the room has fully functioning, efficient cooling systems, in case I forget to wear sunscreen again.
