Mind your own business

The Commercial-News

---- — Editor:

Sometimes people’s chosen mentality stuns me.

I lived in the mountains and the desert for 15 years. The sun can be brutal. Intelligent people both carry umbrellas or “parasols” — they have been around for eons — and wear sunblock.

I get so tired of hearing the snide remarks — which I try to simply ignore — from all age groups and seeing the hands go open, palms up, shrugs, etc., simply because it isn’t raining.


I have already had a suspicious mole removed from my back. It was never even really exposed to the sun.

Well, people, you may not care about your own skin, but I certainly care about mine! So, why don’t you get a life, and you won’t have time to stick your unwelcome noses into mine.
