When my aunt got home she was so red that I thought we needed to take her to the hospital! I have never seen a person that looked like they been put into a BBQ! She sat on the couch next to me and pulled down her bathing suit to show me how badly she was burned and then she said, "Beth, maybe I should have stayed her in the shade with you", then she let out a half chuckle. I went to get the aloe lotion and I had her take her top off while I rubbed the lotion into her shoulders/back and then back of her legs. I flipped her over and rubbed more aloe on all the areas not covered by her bathing suit. Since her bathing suit was made up of three triangles there was a lot of area to cover in lotion. I felt terrible seeing her like this but it also reminded me of what this evil Arizona sun could have done to me! If my aunt looks like this and she has a golden tan, can you imagine what it would have done to me and my pasty skin?
I turned on the television and ran back to my room to get a towel to cover her front with. I did want to spend the evening staring at my naked aunt and I got her pillow. I brought her some cold water from the kitchen and she lay on the floor and was sleeping soon after. I flipped through the channels from about seven till a little while ago and then she woke up. She smiled at me and her face looked like a tomato with eyes and a mouth! She asked me what I did today and I told her nothing much. I also told her that I was sorry for not going and she looked at my white legs dangling in front of her and she said, "your lily white and I am sure we would be driving you to the hospital if you had spent any time in the heat like me", I smiled at her because she was not mad at me for not going.
When she stood up to go into the kitchen the cats parted and made a path for her, something they never do for me! She also didn't bother with her towel, I covered my eyes with both my hands when I talked to her and she yelled back at me, "have you never seen a naked woman"! I gulped hard and I spread my fingers on my left hand a bit to look at her face while she spoke and she walked back over to me and pulled my hands down and put a coke in one of them. I was so flushed I felt like asking her to put her towel back on and she finally gave up on me and wrapped herself up. I sipped my coke while she talked about how much fun she had today and I merely listened to the adventure. She stared down at her feet and walked out of the room and came back with nail polish, emery board, and nail polish remover. She tugged the coffee table closure to herself and took a cotton ball and started removing the coloring. All the cats were drawn to the attention of what she was doing but she hit them on their nose and they would stay off the coffee table.
After she had removed all the color from her nails she asked me about my love life, if there was some boy I left behind in Maine? I thought I told her in my e-mails over the last year that I have not been with man in longer than a year. I told her again and she gasped, "Beth we need to do something about this, I am going to find you Mr. Right-Now", I thanked her but said No Way! I told her the next man I sleep with is going to have to be husband material and she laughed! She said life is too short for waiting for the right "man" to come along. I waited a life time for your uncle and then he died! She told me that after my uncle died she did not have sex for many years, she had no desire and the money only made her more depressed. Then she met a young yoga instructor and he helped her "heal" and now she lives like this. Well, I am not like my aunty and yoga is too hard for me, I am sort of wrong shape for it. When I told her my theory on why I don't do yoga she almost shot water out her nose and I took a quiet sip of coke.
