Briar: Hi Iwona. I didn’t know you were coming to the beach today. A real scorcher, isn’t it?
Iwona: That’s for sure! That’s why I came so late. I try to avoid the sun between 12:00 pm and 4:00 pm. What time did you get here?
Briar: Oh, around 9:30 this morning.
Iwona: Wow! That’s a long time to be in the sun. By the way, can I use your sunblock?
Briar: Sorry Iwona. I don’t use sunblock.
Iwona: What? You didn’t use sunblock, and you have been outside for 6 hours! Briar, you are really playing with fire!
Briar: What do you mean?
Iwona: The sun can be very dangerous between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm. You must wear sunblock or avoid the sun all together between those hours. If you don’t, you are just throwing caution to the wind. You need to play it safe!
Briar: You know a lot about sun safety, Iwona. Do you have any other advice for me?
Iwona: Sure. Always wear a hat, and never forget your sunglasses.
Briar: Thanks, Iwona! Next time I plan a trip to the beach, I’ll look before I leap!
