TMI

So I had a sit on my face, just below the right corner of my mouth.  It had been there for a while.  Unfortunately, this isn't anything new for me while living in California; the pollution here gives me skin problems like acne and contact dermatitis on a regular basis.  So I didn't think much about it.  It would go away, or it wouldn't.

Until this morning, when it started itching like mad, and I scratched it, and it damn near exploded all over my hand.  Nothing says "Good Morning!" like hearing a damn abscess pop under your fingernail.

Turns out it wasn't a zit.  The two-inch long hair that came out with the pus was proof of an ingrown hair.

I've had ingrown hairs before, but this once was special.  For me, this was Hairzilla.

And that's more than you wanted to know.

I'm telling you, that was auto-correct! DAMN YOU, AUTO CORRECT!

But I'd like to be that flexible for once.
