Tinman is VERY afraid of going outside. He is very obsessive, and one thing he obsesses about is cancer. He is constantly afraid that he will get skin cancer from the sun, and therefore stays inside as much as possible. One cloudy day, his parents finally persuade him to go out and play. He gets his dog, Babycakes, and plays outside with the dog for a good 6 hours. He never knew it was so fun! When he walks in the door, he notices that he is massively sunburned! How did he get burned so badly if there were clouds overhead?

I would have assumed that someone as paranoid as Tinmas of the sun, would have known that.

This one failed me. I could tell from the title and very beginning of teaser exactly where it was going and what the answer was. Just not my cup of tea, but still a redeemable teaser with information not everyone knows.

Thats why my skin burns after a (seemingly) cloudy day under the sun!

Already knew this too but I suppose there are probably a few people who don't, and will now have been made paranoid about going out
