not so pretty- but my zit looked fabulous

a yellow dusting on the car....head so stuffed with pollen-induced mucus that it throbs....ahhh....spring in south carolina. thankfully, it'll be summer, like, next week, so i think i can manage.

a friend recently submitted a friendster testimonial for my approval. it said something about how they found it troubling that i still look pretty much the same as i did my freshman year of high school- 12 years ago. it doesn't bother me- i'm perfectly fine not looking my age. the only time it has ever bugged me was in college, when most folks assumed i was jailbait, and therefore only really creepy guys tried to go out with me. (my old college flames notwithstanding, of course.)

the last time i flew on an airplane, the gate agent asked if i was travelling with an adult. i was quite flattered. i figure the short stature and braces (with colored bands around the brackets, because you only live once) threw him off. i thanked him for the compliment and boarded the plane.

my skin doesn't seem to have gotten the memo about my age, either. herbert (a zit so big i had to name it) took up residence on my left cheek yesterday. overnight, he hit puberty and blossomed, in all his whitehead glory.

so, to recap, today i wandered around with watery eyes, a runny nose, and a sizeable zit- i was one hot babe, let me tell you.

This post made me laugh out loud, that's not mean is it? :-)

not mean- just heartless and cruel.

Enjoy it while it lasts, darling. It reminds me of the daughter in the film "Matchstick Men". I won't say more in case you haven't seen it yet.

I'm glad I found you. Your attitude is a DELIGHT.

thank you, citrus- your compliment really means a lot to me.
