Freckles and... Living la vida seta del portobello

When I was a kid, I wanted freckles. My best friend had freckles, and I wanted them too. We both had long blonde hair, blue/green eyes, similar facial features - but she had freckles. Her mom was swedish - my mom was never pregnant, so I have no idea where my lack of freckles came from.

Now that I'm OLD - I'm developing freckles on my arms and hands. 52 fucking years I've had to wait for my damn freckles - and some VERY KIND FRIEND has had the chutzpah to tell me they aren't freckles at all, but liver spots.

They're my freckles, dammit, they're FRECKLES - and that's my story and I'm sticking with it so there, phllhhhbbbhhttt.

The question arises, however, as to HOW these freckles have come to be. You see, I've been put on a different hypertension med for the last 2 1/2 months, "Avilide", and I know it didn't cause the freckles, because they've been there for a bit, just getting a little more obvious lately - but the Avilide says that I need to stay out of direct sunlight or strong light for extended periods of time.

Living la vida seta del portobello. Mushrooming. I keep the shades down and stay out of the garden for the most part. I don't know why I have to be a mushroom, but the med warning was on a BRIGHT RED sticker in BIG LETTERS, so it must be very important.

So how come if I'm living like a 'shroom, am I able to grow more freckles???

My leg is much better, thank you for inquiring. Dr. Brad is kind of like this miracle worker for my back and hip problems. I should have known better than to try and get Dr. Nick to fix this - he's only an MD.

We DO learn to settle as we age, right? =)

it takes 52 years to reach without booster rockets. Actually your wish traveled at the normal speed. Our time and space is different and 52 years passed by. You have to blame Einstein.
