Touched By the Sun
By Patt


Simon called Blair into his office.

“What can I do for you?” Blair asked.

“Why is your partner so red in the face?” Simon inquired.

“He was touched by the sun yesterday and he forgot to put sunscreen on,” Blair said.

“Were you out there with him?” Simon wondered aloud.

“Yes.”

“Then why isn’t your face red like Jim’s?”

“I did get sunburned, but not on my face. I was facing the other way,” Blair explained.

“Oh for crying out loud, is this sexual?”

“Yes, Simon.”

Get out of my office. Tell Jim to use some Aloe Vera,” Simon ordered.


The end

Yes, it is still morning here... just.

How am I ? Wondering what to do with the prompt... :-) Come to that, how are you bearing up, with the problems your Dad's having?

I'm sad that I'm not with him. I'm so crazy about him and it makes me feel horrible that I'm not there. I planned a trip in October, so I hope things will be fine and I can still plan on that.

You're lucky you've had him as long as you have - my father was just 79 when I lost him... that was in 1985.

I'd imagine though that your trip in October will still happen and you'll see him then.

I bet you still miss him every day, don't you? These dads are such a great part of our lives that we have an emptiness at just the thought of losing them. But I'm going to enjoy my dads years that he'll still be here. 87 is a good age. He keeps saying he's living on borrowed time. He's such a character.

Miss him? Yes and no. I was always more his daughter than my mother's, but my years from 4 till 11 were without him because of the war. And after more than 25 years without him... well, you get used to it. I was never close to my mother - basically, I never really forgave her for evacuating me in 1939 then - after taking me home again in early 1940 - evacuating me again six months later. I was old enough to understand why, but not old enough to understand why she didn't go too - and frankly I still don't understand that; she didn't work, with a child my age she was exempt from war work, my father was, at that time, employed as a civilian worker on an airfield in Fife and lived on site until he got his mobilisation papers in 1941. I saw it as abandonment and never quite trusted her again, though I don't think she actually realised that. She did recognise that evacuation left me less trusting than I had been, but I don't think she realised it extended to her.

I think writing (I began 'writing' stories when I was about 8) was my way of dealing with it. But it was actually finding fandom (in the early 70s) that restored a lot of my faith in other people. Your response here is part of that - thanks.

Seriously, there was a lot of psychological damage done to my generation with evacuation - all with the best of intentions (must keep the kids safe). I was luckier than a lot of kids - at least I liked living in the country, and first time round I was with my paternal grandfather, second time my maternal grandfather was 'evacuated' with me - but for many inner city kids it was a whole alien world and they were billetted on complete strangers. I happened to see the log book of a rural school a few years ago, and in August of 1939 the teachers had a couple of days off to go around the district to see which houses had a spare bedroom so that they could be assigned an evacuee from the nearest town. I suspect that happened all over the country.

Which all gives you a history lesson you probably never wanted to hear in the first place :-)

It was so sad that this had to happen. I wouldn't have wished that on anyone. My heart breaks for all of you.

There's a lot in history I wouldn't have wished on anyone. The difference in 1939 was that it was all done with very good intentions. Nobody realised the psychological damage it could cause.

My life has been happy enough, and I'm perfectly content with where I am now, though I do sometimes wonder what path I would have taken if I hadn't grown up in the war years, with all that that involved. I wouldn't have learned distrust when I was five, that's for sure!

I know, they are so fun. I love Jim and Blair. My grand-daughter told me one day,"They make the cutest couple." I cracked up. She loves Blair the most, she told me. I told her that six year olds don't know everything. Jim is the cutest. :)

Out of the mouths of babes... I'm totally with her.

Cute story and I can just see Simon's face as he realizes he stepped right into that one.


Hey, how come Simon didn't tell Blair to slather on some Aloe Vera on his burned cheeks?
