Return of Vesuvius
So, the other day when a very large, very visible and very angry spot set up camp on a prominent area of my face I felt slightly disgruntled.
It was one of those monstrous lumps, pulsating ominously right in the middle of my face, waiting to erupt just like Vesuvius. My skin was stretched tightly over it's bulbous head and my hand kept creeping tentatively toward it - just to check if it was as gigantic as it looked.
The damn thing was so enormous it nearly needed it own postcode for Pete's sake.
Every time I passed a mirror I half expected it to start conversing with me. I wonder what kind of conversation a zit could possibly have with it's 'carrier'?
Zit - 'Hi, how are you going?'
Me- 'Oh, really well thank you'
Zit- 'Hope you don't mind me moving in for a couple of days'
Me-'Not at all, not at all.....make yourself at home'
Zit- "Well, if you insist'
Hubby of course, finds it all hilarious.
'Here's a cup of tea darling, does your 'little' friend want one too?'
'Hope you've set an extra place at the table for that thing'
'Honey, I'm sleeping on the couch tonight, I don't think I'll be able to fit into bed with you and your new buddy'
Ha, Ha, Frigging Ha is all I can say.
Luckily his skin is as prone to volcanic eruptions as mine so it's only a matter of time before he has a 'special friend' of his own, then I can get my own back.
But until then my latest friendship is finally coming to a slow and torturous end. It's deflating, finally flattening, dying a lingering death. Despite my obvious 'attachment' to the thing I'm relieved that I can once again show my face in public without taking someones eye out....until next time that is.
