...feeling proud Keith @dysentery4you

Coping, friends & family, strangers

I have a word for "non-p" people at my house...I call them "smoothies". Like when someone says oh, just wear short sleeves, nobody will notice...I say oh, you smoothies think it's so easy! Do you all have a word for "smoothies”

Its true i know keith all to well, i went through childhood being told you need to get the sun on it etc, they are not getting the stares, the looks of horror, when i was teenager i got worse with covering up, i was stubborn as a mule i wouldnt get the flakes out at all, i would wear long sleeve jumpers or if i had a t shirt on in the summer i would wear a winter coat and would rather sweat than people see it, be different if the tables were turned on them i am sure they would more likely be the same in hiding it :)

Michelle @mishlyn

I dont Keith, but I can see me using your term smoothie in the future! 😉 lol It is the worst hearing it over and over again. Putting a comedic twist on it sure would lighten the mood!

Sarah @sarahuk

@chewbacca was the first person I came across who had a word for this - "clearskins". I don't have a word for it but now I think of that sometimes hehe!

Susan @godcares

When neighborhood kids ask why my elbows look like this, I tell them that I fell off a skateboard and it tore all my skin off there. They're pretty impressed.
