Wait… Canada Has Sun?

, , , , | Right | November 14, 2020

I live in a town in Alberta that is popular in the summer for tourists. We have a desert-like climate: very hot and very dry. I’m a customer in this story and I overhear this between two customers as I wait in line behind them.

Customer #1: “Oh! We forgot sunscreen.”

Customer #2: “Shoot!”

[Customer #1] turns to the cashier and asks, straight-faced:

Customer #1: “Can people get sunburned in this town?”

I couldn’t help but stare at the man, hoping he was joking. No sign of sarcasm was present.
