Sunburner: one who is particularly prone to being sunburned, usually susceptible due to pale or sensitive skin
Example: Chelsea made the decision to move to Phoenix, Arizona despite the fact that she was an atrocious sunburner.
Related nonwords: summerize, SPFed, sunburnee
“Sunburnee” might be the more appropriate nonword, but to me that suffix suggests passivity, and becoming sunburned implies some sort of deliberate action out under the sunrays. And yes, I am a sunburner. My skin apparently favors blistering and peeling to gaining any sort of tan, no matter how frequent the applications of sunblock. It makes me wonder why I persist in activities that are likely to lead to more sun exposure, like lifeguarding or attending college in Tempe. I guess I’m a glutton for epidermal punishment.
