'That seagull is laughing at you'

Seeing as the weather today on the East Coast was glorious, a friend and I decided to take a trip to Anstruther.

Me: But why? I find it difficult to sunbathe knowing that I'm slowly cooking. And there's the risk of skin cancer.
Friend: Oh yeah, but I really like the way you feel the skin cancer slowly move across your skin.
Me: ...
