Bad face week

I have a huge zit on my forehead that I have named Morty.  Honestly, it's like a gnome has suddenly sprouted off the front of my forehead and I am afraid the old man is going to start shaking hands with everyone that walks by.  I hate to even call it a zit because it doesn't do it justice--it's really more of a cyst, but when a cyst shows up on your face people typically think they are zits.  So here I am calling my cyst a zit and naming him Morty.

I actually had an appointment with my dermatologist today and she of course asked "how is your skin?" so I pulled up my bangs and showed her Morty.  She took one look at it and said, "Maybe it would be better if you wear your bangs down this week".  I kid you not!  She is the coolest derm ever--I was laughing.  She then told me about needing to inject a steroid into one of her own this week because it looked rather inflammatory.  Laura, I was totally thinking of you when I was there and I hoped she was going to suggest some zit juice (or botox, whatever), but no luck.  It looks like I will have to wear the bangs down for another week.  This sucker hurts--one of my co-workers hugged me yesterday while I was sitting in my chair and her boob attacked Morty.  Ouch.

Ok I know I shouldn't laugh at your expense, but when you talked about your co-worker's boob attacking your zit I couldn't help it. :)

Hope Morty leaves soon!

Ahh, my dream job (pimple popper, MD:) That's HYSTERICAL. Thank gosh for bangs, huh?! I need me some of those, but they'd have to vo down to my nose...in which case I guess they wouldn't be bangs anymore. Maybe I'll just go Cousin It style, like a teenager full of zit angst.

Morty, lol you are too funny! I have 2 cold sores on my upper and bottom lip from lack of sleep and being sick so I feel your pain. Hmmm I wonder what I should call mine.

You're in good company. Most of the time my skin is okay, but when I do get a zit, it's about the size of New Hampshire and can't be covered up by hair or anything else. Why, you ask? Because it's always on my nose or chin. Rarely, rarely do I get one that's "hardly noticeable." Hope Morty bids you farewell soon. And tell your co-worker to back off for a while.
