love sucks.

Ok, so I have a zit. Who doesn't have a zit now and then?

And maybe it's a fairly large zit. But does that mean it's appropriate for the Rally Monkey to give it a voice over (in approximately the register of James Earl Jones)?

Or to come home, kiss me hello, and then kiss my zit hello?

Or to walk by me where I'm quietly working away on my computer and start squeezing my head?

"Your zit told me it was the original, and you were the growth," he said. "I was just trying to pop you to get my original merchandise back."

Or you could look at it as, "It must be true love if he's actually letting his lips touch my awful, disgusting, pus-filled zit."

No need to thank me for my optimisim. I must away, now, and tend to the Banks children. Spit spot!

Thanks, Brian. That's what I keep you around for, there, your little spoonful of sugar.

I love his sense of humor, Moonie, although I can see why you might have been irritated, being the butt of the joke and all. The thing is though, you can keep promising revenge. And when you deliver, it could be just as deliciously annoying.

I'm still laughing at the squeezing of the head thing.

You do know the film How to Get Ahead in Advertising, right? Recommended stop at the video store on the way home tonight. Or put it on your Amazon wishlist to see if RM is paying attention.

Do you think getting the zit is connected to the pink tracksuit? I wouldn't be surprised. Or the stress-related diet?
Eat your veggies.
And tell these people picking on you that I said lay off.
I bet they don't have legions of adoring groupies...

Oh, ew. (not you, him) I feel your pain. My husband discovered a fart app on his iphone the other day and made me sit through a demonstration of EVERY SINGLE ONE.

Maybe we were right when we were younger, maybe they do have cooties...

At least he's not trying to pop it for you.

Before you go to bed tonight, put toothpaste on it and dry it with the hairdryer, until it forms a crust. Leave it until morning.

Think of it this way--you're still young enough to GET zits.

Trust me, when you're sticking your head in the freezer or flapping your blouse open every 30 minutes for hot flashes, those zits will seem like lost friends.

That's hysterical...thanks for adding mirth to my day...(Mirth is an underused word...)

Playful teasing is normal. Pipe down madam. :)

Rosemary- that made me giggle...

At least you are not at that point in life when you can have pimples AND wrinkles at the same time :) Although perhaps both are better than hot flashes- that sounds horrible!

Elle--regretfully I can't comment on that.

I used to get 'em the size of a third eye. Considered trying a little brown shadow, some liner & mascara & claiming I was an alien. Didn't have the nerve, though.
