My life is over.
I'm officially one of them. I officially "get cold-sores." I had never had one before last month, when I got deathly sick with the plague and thought I was going to die. First it was strep, then it was a viral infection, one right after the other. But in the midst of that sick-shit-storm I got my first cold-sore. I tried to justify it. "No, look! I did research, and it says that they're much more common if you have a fever." And it was true, I did indeed have a fever of 101 for about four days in a row.
This morning I noticed that I'm getting one in the exact same spot I had it last time. It's the sequel. It's a ghost that is returning to once more haunt my social life. The worst part is I'm not even sick. Well that's not totally true. I have a small cold -- you know, congestion, slight sore throat. But that's it. I don't once more have the plague. Fuck.
Luckily when I was home for Christmas my mom gave me some of her super-chemo-strength cold-sore pills. I took two just now. I'm thinking of ODing on the whole bottle. Not because I want to kill myself, but because I want to get rid of thsi thing that badly. I HAVE JUSTIN'S BDAY PARTY THIS SATURDAY! In merely TWO DAYS.
And after seeing some of those video testimonials of his, I was definitely not hoping to go home alone. Or at the very least to get the #s of 5 smoking hot guys, minimum.
But now I'll have a Martian growth on my lip. And the thing is, I've always been a face-guy. You know, there are two types of guys. Guys whom you go after because they have beautiful faces, or guys whom you go afte beacuse of their great bodies -- body-guys. Once in a rare while, you find a combination guy. Back away. Slowly. Not quickly. He's really a dick-eating alien Communist in disguise, waiting to pounce at any moment.
Does this mean I have to turn into a body-guy? I do NOT have the discipline for that.
So the moral. Is there a moral here? No. I don't buy into that whole stupid prayer, how does it go? Something like "Give me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change." Horseshit.
But that doesn't mean I have the moral yet... I'll be back with it later today.
