Today is Friday. It is a great day. Later on this lovely winter evening I’ll be joining some friends for grilled pizza and watch Kubo and the Two Strings. A clay nation movie that I’ve been wanting to see for a while. An art that took years to make. Anyway, what my coworkers were talking about this afternoon almost make this day not so good of a day. They were talking about popping zits. Giant zits.
Popping zits. I’m usually okay with talking about anything at any time from poop at lunch to sex positions at dinner but today really was not the day. I had a nice full tummy after consuming a sandwich and split pea soup in the cold February afternoon. I was happily starting back up work to finish the second half of the workload when my coworker asked, “Do you watch zit videos?” I was dumbfounded by the question, so I replied “What?” with a confused look. Then she explained… I regret deeply 1. Not having my earphones in like I’ve been doing for the past couple of days so I can’t really response to much because I can’t hear much. Podcasts are awesome. 2. WHY DID I ASK!? Curiosity really make the cat sick this time.
My supervisor chimed in as I took deep relaxing breaths to not lose my lunch at my desk as I slowly remember zit popping videos. I have only seen one such video a good long while ago on a show called Tosh.O where they gather clips on YouTube and talk about them. I have that image forever in my brain after seeing it once. They were talking about it for a good half an hour in pretty detail description from the size of zit to the end result of a golf ball size hole in that back after popping it and looking up similar clips on their phones. Good thing they did not show me any. I’m pretty sure my face was getting pretty pale at that point. My coworker also share that she watches these clips almost nightly before bed because it’s just so satisfying to see a zit pop.
So what is your grossest discussion you have at work or with anyone? And what is your “unusual” ritual before bed?
