|Image from here. I had a picture of Magda here for ages, but I kept getting people visiting this post for the image so I have changed it so that it won't be my most popular post forever more even though I don't think many people have really ever read it and it is by far not my best work!|
Do you remember Magda from There's something about Mary?
I swear I saw her at the beach at the weekend!
This woman was literally brown all over.
Her skin looked like a crinkle-cut chip.
She was sunning herself, and burning her precious skin.
I said to my friend K, "Geez, how old do you reckon she actually is?" (thinking to myself that her skin looks at least 80 but surely, surely an 80 year old woman wouldn't be out sun-baking would she?)
K said, "Probably 40".
With the weather warming up, Magda's Doppelganger is a timely reminder of the importance of sunscreen, moderate sun exposure and a good sense of humour at the beach.
