Four Other Ways That Summer Tries To Getcha Getcha Getcha Getcha

1) Sunburned Eyeballs
WHAT?! For real. You can sunburn your eyeballs, which will (duh) cause problems down the road like cataracts and macular degeneration. Wear sunglasses with good UV protection!

2) Food Poisoning
Potato salad in the sun. Undercooked meat at the barbeque. Bad news for your health.


3) E. Coli
That pesky poop-loving bacteria comes from humans, animals, BIRDS...and chlorine in your pool water might not kill it all. Never mind beaches and lakes.

4) Booze-induced Dehydration
You should know by now that alcohol dehydrates you (yes, even those refreshing lemon shandy concoctions). Take frequent water-and-shade breaks, especially when it's hot and humid. Kick back under a tree (or inside with central air!) and re-hydrate yourself!

Or not. I'm not the boss of you. Whatever.
