"I hate my brown skin", this is what Marielle said yesterday, out of the blue. Oh, no, I've always told her that her skin is so lovely...where did that come from? I told her that people pay money to get their skin brown, they pay for spray tans, just to have skin her color.
Then I went on to tell her that I wished I had skin like hers. I told her the true story of when I was in Denmark for 3 weeks with my aunt, uncle and cousin and we spent every day for 3 weeks at the beach. Everyone else got beautiful tans....I got red. Really red. On the beach, everyone called me "the tomato" and it was true. No tans for me....just red. She laughed and I think she felt just a little bit better.
