“Admit it”

December 20, 2009 by Kat  

Admit it. You love popping zits. As we all know, zits do not discriminate. They love surfacing and torturing teenagers and retirees’ alike. Even though I’m somewhere in the middle, generation-wise, I’ve decided to embrace this fact of life. In fact, I actually look forward to pruning day, as I call it. The day that baby is ready to erupt.

Do you initially get pissed off when you feel one surfacing?  The ones that are soo painful, but don’t yet have the white-head — THEY ARE THE WORST. And talk about testing your patience? It is a flippin’ science to wait to the EXACT moment that aforementioned zit is perfectly ripe. It has taken me 34 years to get it just right; and even now, it’s still a 50/50 split.

Now, the ones on my back or shoulders I don’t get nearly as bummed about, as they’re usually pretty juicy.
However, the downside is that you can’t actually witness the pop, due to inability to become
Gumby
at that exact moment…

For those, you either guess the exact location, and pinch the snot out of it (then keep checking fingers/nail
to see if you got it), or you ask a friend or spouse to hook you up (no, this is not me in this pic,
Picture 51
but it easily could be!).

Anywho, if you are able to catch the residual puss under your nail, don’t you experience a huge feeling of accomplishment (especially when able to roll extraction around between your pointer and thumb… if it’s substantial enough, that is)?

Now, let’s head up north to the ones on the face. When you finally realize that inevitably they will rupture in +/- a week —  do you embrace it as I now do? Do you actually look forward to it, and even touch it more than you should, just so it will peak in its ripeness? I get very impatient waiting for that sucker. Oh, sometimes it’s like Christmas morning.

In fact, just as you can’t time when your kids are going to have a melt down, neither can you time when Mt. Zition is going to erupt. Let’s take church (have I mentioned I LOVE our church?) last week. As hubby and I were listening to the sermon, evidentally I started making this awful, painful-ridden expression, as I buckled to the side. Nose was all scrunched up, and eyes were squeezed closed (and, yes, tearing). Face was red. Hubby whispers, “OMG, what is wrong with you??!?!?”, and just as a proud momma would, I reveal to hubby my proud crop. A white grain I just popped out of my cheek — right from the skin on my jawbone (only needed one hand to squeeze this one out).

Now, let’s talk about the downsides: Picture 52
A.  When they’re under the nose or on/near the lip (see Exhibit A, right)
[Editor Note: No, this is NOT me, and I'm THANKFUL for that]

B.  When I have to lean over the bathrooom counter to get close enough (very uncomfortable; there should be some sort of reflective, ideal area in bathroom just for this task)

C.  When you — against your better judgement — still dive in prematurely, and screw up your face for a good 10 days

So, I just decided to see if there was anything online written about this chore.

When I was a teenager, it was called “trial and error”. Now it’s called “Instructables”. You gotta check this out!

Just when you think I may have drawn the line — get this. You can actually get PAID for popping your zits! What will they come up with next?

    Yep I admit it I am a zit getter, a pimple popper. I don’t get too many on my face, mainly those irritating oil bumps you were talking about that are so sore to touch for days on end.but my son is a plethora of them, especially if he has not shaved… and he runs when he sees me lol.. He could have had my mom who still sports these claw things she calls fingernails that would slice ya like a razor. I learned the habit out of self preservation and became an addict lol

  2. I admit it…I love popping a zit! it’s so gratifying…even better if it makes that ‘pop’ sound! I’d rather I not get zits, but when I do, it’s war

    Guilty. But even more so of the blackhead. Total satisfaction. And a good stress reliever. My husband will tell you that popping zits makes my day. I’m not saying anything one way or another!

    Not too mention how gratifying it is when you explode one all over the 6 foot mirror in the bathroom and just leave it there for the wife to clean up…..uhhhhh……not that I would do that though….
