Red as a beet

This is a beach
He fell asleep
He woke up baked
Red as a beet
Take a gander
He's one cooked goose
He'll never learn
He's too obtuse

    Lol, that would do it -falling asleep at the beach. I once went to an outdoor concert without the suntan lotion. I was cooked. Can see this guy in my mind resembling mine :) Enjoyed, Jon.

    It actually happened to somebody I knew when I was in the service.
