You look pale, are you sick?

Heather Rowland,
Wilkes Community College

I chose these six words, because people are always telling me how pale I am, and those who are not around me often enough to realize I am naturally pale, always ask if I am feeling ok. While I am often perfectly healthy when I am asked this, because of the severity of my paleness, people always assume I have the flu or some other illness. I have been told countless times, if I got a spray tan or tried tanning lotion, I would look much better and healthier. While I used to get upset when these comments were made, I have learned to just laugh it off, and ignore what people say.
