Guess you had to be there...
The next day we were cuttin' up again. On the TV they were taking about the tropical storm that formed in the Gulf of Mexico. It's a strange phenomenon to say the least to have a named storm form this far north, there was another tropical storm recently that formed off the coast of Georgia. So the discussion went of about global warming and such, when it occurred to me what has caused this fundamental change in weather patterns. If the Titanic had not hit that ice burg, the Arctic shelf would not be breaking up. We wouldn't be having this strange weather.
So today, we're talking about the hot weather in the Eastern US. I said that when I was a kid I loved it that hot, and we never wore sunscreen. In fact we work the coconut Hawaiian Tropic suntan lotion to get the good tan. So the argument was that skin cancer was more prevalent now, and I agree with that. But in a serious note I think some people are pre-disposed to that. I don't personally seem to be affected by all that sun exposure in my younger years. Even now I don't wear sun screen ever. But for those less fortunate, I had the answer, I blamed it on the Titanic... (jokingly).
