Note to self: if you’re going to the Denver Museum of Nature of Science, go when they open. That was totally the best time to hit it today! Got there at 9 when no one was there, left at noon when the throngs descended upon the building. The benefit to getting there early was that there were no crowds at the new exhibit, Exhibition Health. Ok, it’s been there awhile, but it’s the first time we’ve seen it.
So, Jen, what did you learn?
I learned that my arm span is less than my height by about an inch.
I learned that I need to up my cardio, for heart health and bone strength.
And I learned that, oh my holy hell, sunscreen is NOT optional. Same with a wide-brimmed hat.
On the left is how I’d look in a little more than 3 years, at age 40, with normal aging. On the right is the same age with UV exposure.
Getting a little more haggard.
Um, things are getting a little frightening here…
Whimper…this isn’t good…
Sweet Baby Jesus…really?
I try to remember to wear sunscreen, but I don’t more often than I do. Wide-brimmed hat? Rarely. I have no idea if these examples take into affect the altitude, but I’m pretty sure they do. We get a LOT more sun and UV rays here in Colorado than other places in the country. So I’ll be wearing sunscreen year-round now, and shopping for an attractive hat for the summer.
A also did this, but with the effects of smoking instead of UV rays.
Freaked him out enough that I’m pretty sure he’ll think twice before taking up smoking. That said?
The picture on the left there, of A at age 40 (he clicked through so fast I couldn’t get 30 or 35) is a dead ringer for my brother. Further proof that I’m raising my brother!
Sunscreen. Hats. Freaked the hell out of me today.
