Things You Don't See in Tucson

1. Grass Stains on little boys' pants.

2. The kids playing outside for hours without frying to a crisp.

3. People drinking water from the tap.

4. The children's parks are actually full of children.

5. Neighbors hanging out outside their homes, actually being neighbor(ly)s.

(I was actually excited about seeing grass stains on Davie's pants yesterday. I know, I'm a dork.)

This #2 concerns me...your children children will not melt, but they will fry in less than 15 minutes without sunscreen...and none of that SPF15 crap. You're not in Tucson anymore, Dorothy! You have to hold them by their toes and dip them into a vat of at least SPF30...then if they don't wear shoes, turn 'em over and dip 'em again feet first. Or you can use one of those power sprayer (like you use to paint your house). I have one if you want to borrow it.
