Came So Far for Beauty

Because a wart on the thumb and another one on the bottom of my foot isn’t enough – I now have a cold sore.

Denton says you can’t see it or notice it at all.  I think it is the size of Rhode Island….and that he’s lying.   And naturally, I think everyone is staring at it and mocking me the second I’m out of earshot.

That is probably not different than before, but now they have a new point of mockery and it sits on and above my lip.

You’re probably asking why this picture of Nigel Tufnel.  Go ahead – you know you are.  Well, I couldn’t find a picture of him or David St. Hubbins, who both sported gargantuan cold sores in one scene of This is Spinal Tap.

I’m assuming they are called ‘cold sores’ due to the fact you can get them from colds?  But I haven’t had one of those for months.  But it ’tis sore.  Most on-lines sites reference stress as a factor.   g-d knows I have enough of that these days.

I have no idea how long these last.  I can only remember one before this – and it was when Morty and I were out in Palm Springs visiting David.   No stress there – just lots of liquor and/or drugs.

Do those cause herpes simplex 1 or 2?   Because that would make a lot of sense.

  1. We’re like twins! I have a cold sore, also. And it’s most definitely cuz of stress. I guess it could be worse. I could’ve eaten those tainted tomatoes!
