Your 89-Word Mini Florida Culture Lesson

Farmer’s Tan: a kind of tan commonly found in Florida natives. In the arms, the tan begins just below the line of one’s short-sleeved shirt and in the legs, the tan is restricted to the feet, leaving the upper arms and legs lily-white. It is referred to as a “farmer’s tan,” because it mimicks the tan a farmer would achieve if he were working out in the hot fields, barefoot. Thanks to spending several hours with my father at a Tampa Buccaneers football game, Sean has one now, too.
