PMD.....Pimple of Mass Destruction!

I went to bed last night feeling a little pimple coming on. I only referred to it as a "little" pimple because I didn't know there was an impending volcano waiting to erupt. We've all been there right? Ok, maybe some of you don't like to talk about them like I do, but hey, we all have them so call them what you will like zits, acne, blemishes, lurkers, or even creatures.

I did what any woman might do in this situation and that is to put a dab of toothpaste on it!

Well my husband took one look at me and said, "Baby, let's get it on!".

See, even after 18 years of marriage, I still got it!

I woke this morning thinking for sure the toothpaste did the trick. It just had too! Ha, who was I kidding. My daughter came in and said, "Ewwwwwww, what is that?

"Am I gonna have that when I'm your age?" "Honey, I hope not, but I looked exactly like my mother, skin and all (actually my mother had beautiful skin) so the odds are not in your favor!'' Yes, I'm evil and I kinda like it!

So, I went off to make the coffee, pack the lunches, toss a few not so very nice mommy words out and then threw the kids out the door!

I passed by a mirror and did a double take because as I was busy getting the kids out the door, the volcano did erupt and .......

now I see why Claire said Ewwwww!

Ok, I'm going in. I've got to go in head first (get it head first) and tackle this thing! I know its gonna hurt, but I can't take it anymore! I might scare someone!

I washed my face and tried to do my best cover up. Hell, I think I even spent 45 minutes trying to camouflage the thing and dam if the thing didn't triple in size. How the hell am I gonna cover this bad boy now?

I wonder if anyone will notice if I walk around like this?

I need to order some of this and fast!

I'd even try this if it works!

Hey I was only heading to the Library and Walmart. I figured my chances were mighty high that I would see many oozing people wandering both of those aisles, so I left my bag in the car!

I'm pretty sure with people like these, my little crater looked like a spec of dust!

I can totally relate with you. I'm well on my 30s, and still I get some of those volcanoes, especially around that time of the month.

And to make matters worst, I totally picked on it every single time!!! Ugh.

Should we take it positively and tell ourselves that this means we're still in our puberty?
