Friday....Are you there???

  1. A 2nd grader just came up (It's only 0830 here), and said his teacher told him to come and have me pop his pimple. POP HIS PIMPLE?! I kindly informed him that that is not something I do, nor do I recommend him squeezing it either, as that could only make it worse.

    Really? Do teachers know what we go to school for? Not removing dog poop, putting in an earring, or popping a pimple (well, unless you work in derm).

    Sorry guys, just needed to vent. Today will be a good day... We are picking up our new (used) van this afternoon! Now I wont have to shove the new kid in the trunk <high fives self>

    I would love to pop any pimple you throw at me. I know I CAN'T pop a kid's pimple.

    But I would really want to.

    I have a weird obsession with plucking my husbands beard hairs. He gets these deformed hairs that are like 4 hairs to one shaft. HUGE. He says its because I like to inflict pain upon him. I can't help it if sometimes a normal hair or two get caught in there.

    I enjoy a good pimple popping too. And peeling sunburned skin. My sisters and I used to line up like monkeys picking out bugs to peel each others backs after having gotten a sunburn.

    Once my husband had a cebacious cyst removed from his back. Size of a golfball. The Doc asked if I would like to watch. Heck Yeah !! Lord.....the cheeze was flowing and never seemed to stop. Terrible smell though, but I loved every minute of it !! Gross huh ?

    Pilli multigemini. My husband gets that too, and they drive him bananas with the itching, so I'm allowed to pluck those. But then I start to go after his forehead blackheads, and he gets tired of that quickly.

    edit: I forgot to "quote" - in response to the multiple hair per shaft.

    I read this thread as I shovel chicken pot pie in my mouth.

    Before I go to sleep each night I wind down watching Dr. Sandra Lee videos on YouTube.

    (And yes, I am totally disgusting.)

    If I could pop pimples, lance cysts and squeeze blackheads for a living I would never miss work.

    When my brother played football he used to break out across his upper back and shoulder from sweating in those heavy pads. I would sit him at the kitchen counter and squeeze those suckers until the wee hours in the morning. Huge pimples, those hard little clogged pores that come out looking like a grain of rice, deep nasty cysts. He hated it but I wouldn't get enough. I miss those days! Damn him and his clear skin, that was my favorite hobby...

    Today sucks. 504 meetings all morning with a dad accusing me of not doing my job, 5 pukers before 0900, the phone will not stop ringing.
    Silver lining: I successfully resisted eating hot fresh donuts all morning. That's all I got today.
