Seriously, Who Does This Happen To?

I woke up this morning and I had a pimple. A pulsing, angry, pimple. Not unique, although not that common for me, but this was in a very weird place.

On my little finger.

Who gets a pinkie pimple? I mean, sure there is skin there so I guess it's possible. I thought it might have been an ingrown hair at first, but in truth I don't think I'm growing any more hair on my fingers. AT LEAST I HOPE I'M NOT. So of course I squeezed it, and I have to tell you, it hurt like a mutherfunking icehole. My fingers are not exactly long and elegant but they're not fat little chipolatas either, and I guess there isn't much fleshiness there for the squeezing.

So now ill advised post-squeeze later I have a just as angry looking red lump, like I'm budding a 6th finger. Or a whole person. Parthenogenesis!

A pimple is a sign that the devil resides within you. It is Satan's Symptom. Repent and take Jesus Christ as your personal savior.

So that's the real ProActive Solution?

so once you've taken Jesus, what do you do with him next?

I mean, apart from smoking the cigarette, etc.

boom BOOM!

TOA, was it the sort of pimple you get from an infected puncture wound, like a dirty (sewing) needle? I've had them, and usually under a tough bit of skin on the pad of the finger and it hurts like... well, I was going to say bugg3ry. heh.

Did you just pull that one from your quiver or did you have to poke around a bit?

Hah, pulled it from my quiver, natch. Hello, I was a teenage science fiction reading nerd, parthenogenesis is not exactly an alien concept to me. (See what I did there.)

See what happens when he starts hanging out with a scientist! Next it will be medical procedures or the latest philosophical argument on the species concept.
