I have been told by many that I have nice skin (thank you admirers). I am fortunate to not have many blemishes, pimples, etc. like most teenagers and youthful 20 year olds. However once or twice a year I get the godforsaken inevitable zit. Zits, my friends suck.
They always appear in awkward places. When I do get mine, they always form in the middle of my forehead. The whole Cyclops look doesn’t really work for yours truly. Now I’ve seen some zits in some awkward places. I have viewed some people’s zits where their zits make you do a double take, young babies cry, or they make the weather abruptly change. It’s downright frightening.
They always appear when you take a lot of pictures. The prime example reminds me of one of my friends, let’s call him Luke. He developed a big ass zit in the middle of his forehead right when we were taking senior year prom pictures. (His girlfriend popped that thing on the party bus; I wouldn’t return that tux… all I’m sayin’) Now, is it just me, or do zits form right before a big day, or when you’re trying to look good? If you’re not taking a lot of pictures, you’re meeting a hott girl or guy, or doing something important like a job interview. Screw that resume of yours; nothing says I want the job more than a zit that is screaming “HIRE ME”!
Popping them is a pain. I had my first pimple popped when I was 20 years old…. at a party. Of course the person that popped it was a very attractive young man, and it hurt like a bitch! Popping these things is nasty. Puss is dripping everywhere, a hint of blood here or there, and oops there goes your dignity seeping away at the seams. I rather not have to go through this again, and if I do, I rather it be at the hands of someone not attractive.
Now I’m just going to go out on a limb and speak for myself and my amigos and say if I have to watch one more commercial with a pimply, adolescent teenager applying cream to their face, I may punch a hole in the wall. I mean it is nice that Avril Lavigne and Katy Perry were able to clear their faces due to Proactiv, but I could care less! Sorry if I don’t feel bad that you have a couple craters on your face, when in reality you’ll make more money in a minute than I would ever make in a lifetime.
