The Zit Chronicles

You guys, ordinarily I wouldn’t be quite this obsessive about a single zit, but remember how I told you yesterday  that I was developing a zit on my chin of volcanic proportions?

Well, I’m telling you, I’ve never encountered a zit of this magnitude in my life. Yesterday, I complained enough to Bunny about my zit that she said, “Ok.  Here’s what we’re going to do.  This zit isn’t going to know what hit it.  You’re going to douse it with pure rubbing alcohol before you go to bed, and you’re going to slather it with zit cream, and by morning, you should notice a dramatic improvement.”

So that’s exactly what I did.  And not only did it not work, it simply made the zit angry, so much so that it woke me up several times during the night, just to remind me of its superiority.  It’s currently one of those under-the-surface zits that is unpoppable.  It’s just there, festering, growing, and causing me undue stress and pain.

So when I woke up this morning, I was less surprised than I was defeated when I saw my chin in the mirror.  This zit has literally changed the contouring of my face, it’s so big.  I no longer have the same smile.  Mr. Mock looked at me and recoiled.  Once he got over his horror, he said, “Sweetheart, I don’t even think that’s a zit.  I think that’s some sort of horrible infection and you need to see a doctor.”  THAT is how much of a freak of nature I am – he actually tried to say it was something other than a monster zit just so I could maintain some dignity.

No amount of make-up or concealer will cover this thing.  It’s like a beacon.  I’m pretty sure it’s visible from space, and am genuinely concerned that Google Earth might hone in on it as some unidentified oddity in need of further research.

I may actually call a dermatologist today, just because it DOES seem odd for something like a zit to be this painful.   I will keep you apprised.  Work prom is definitely tentative until such time as the enemy retreats from its position in my chinular area.
