A Pimple You Can’t Pop

I have a pimple on my nose. I know it’s on the left nostril. I can feel it. There’s pressure. There’s a little bump. But I can’t pop it. And it’s starting to drive me crazy. It’s been there for a couple of days now. It’s not noticeable. I can’t see it. But it’s there and it seems to be settling in and making itself comfortable. It might be there for a while. I don’t like pimples you can’t pop. Popping pimples is the best part about having pimples. Some would argue that it’s the only redeeming factor of pimples. You get immense satisfaction from popping pimples. A pimple you can’t pop is a pimple you don’t want. I’m sure dermatologists would advise you against popping pimples, but that’s only because they pop pimples for a living and want the glory for themselves.

Bubble Wrap

Bubble wrap might be a mere packaging product for some boring people, but it’s utter bliss for most of the population. I make a direct beeline whenever I see those little plastic bubbles in a UPS box from across the room. I’ll just pick it up and start squeezing. If I’m feeling particularly rambunctious I might spread it out on the floor and stomp on it. I’ll pop each and every last bubble on the sheet and then look for some more. It therapeutic beyond description. If you hear someone else popping bubble wrap you can’t help but join in. It’s like stomping in puddles. You’re suddenly young again. There is such a thing as bad bubble wrap. It might protect and cushion a fragile object in transit, but it won’t make an audible pop when you pop it. And if it doesn’t pop right than it’s not the real deal. Accept no substitutes. Burst the real wrap or bust.

A Pimple

You wake up feeling refreshed and ready to carpe that diem. It’s a great day and you feel great. Until you glance in the mirror and see a pimple. It’s an obvious one too. Pimples suck. And why the hell am I still getting them? I’ve been in my twenties for a while now; I don’t want to look like an awkward teen again. You can either pop it or let it be. Both options still draw attention to your face. Popping pimples is oddly satisfying for some reason. It’s kind of fun to kill a pimple. But I still prefer clear skin.
