"Sun kisses!: she says, giving me an odd look.
But they don't feel, or look, like "sun kisses". In my mind, I consider them little fiends that have splattered themselves upon my face, and in places on my arms, without my consent. It doesn't help, either, that we live in Arizona. In fact, that can only make them seem worse!
But I didn't always hate them. My freckles, I mean. When I was younger, I actually prided myself on them. It didn't seem like many other kids my age had freckles, so I was happy. I felt unique. At the time, they did feel like "sun kisses".
