Another Reason to Laud Hybrid Vigor
We loaned Iz to a friend for a weekend at the coast. She came back beautifully filthy and exhausted--and sporting a back beet red with sunburn.
I freaked, because for a very pale person like me a sunburn that fierce means purple blisters, fever, and chills the next day. And Iz is my daughter and seems to share my skin tone, and I thought she would be fated to fry at similar temperatures.
Seymour couldn't understand why I was so worried, and the next morning I found out why--Iz woke up with most of the sunburn already faded to tan, as has generally been my partner's experience. So, in this case I can't complain about the Rosenberg genes being so bossy. Yay Portuguese blood!
