I swear, from the time that I was about 11 years old through my Senior Year in High School, it NEVER failed. On "picture day," I would wake up and discover an enormous zit on my face.
Sometimes it would be above one eye or the other. Most often it would be on my left cheek. Heck, one year it surfaced as a "cyclops" kinda deal right between my eyes. I think I was a sophomore. Not sure.
Now, I'm not just talking your normal, run of the mill zit. No, "picture day zit" would always be one of those "quarter-sized" deals that was real red around the edges, and all swelled up and puffy-white in the middle. I mean, the kind of zit that made it look like you were really trying hard to have one.
And, I learned pretty quick that if you tried to squeeze "picture day zit," it only got bigger, and redder, and more grotesque to the naked eye (and camera lens).
It's true. Every stinkin' yearbook picture of me sports "picture day zit."
Sometimes, just for kicks, The Mrs. will pull out my old yearbooks...she'll thumb through, and yell out (while laughing hysterically), "Hey Andy! Come look at 'zit-boy'!!!"
It's reeeeel funny!
Well, dangit! This morning I woke up and was forced to look at "picture day zit" once again. Really.
52 stinkin' years old, and "picture day zit" comes back to screw with me again!
And, good ol' "picture day zit" just happens to have made it's home right on the bridge of my nose. Jeepers! The most prominent, attention-getting, ugly part of my face...my big old ugly nose...
I swear...I just know that when I get to work, and open up my intranet e-mail there's gonna be some surprise announcement about a new "company pictorial directory," and I'll be required to show up and get my picture struck for it today.
I just know it...
I might call in sick.
Naw. That would be the pansy way out. Plus, it's probably not gonna happen. But, I'm still gonna look retarded walking around with this big old zit on my big old ugly nose.
52 stinkin' years old. With a big old zit on my big old ugly nose.
52! Stinkin'! Years! Old!
with a picture day zit...
