I Haven't Got Time For The Pain

I had a flashback to adolescence this morning. I previously noted how I've been going with the clean shaven look as of late after some time wearing facial hair. Apparently all of that time taking it easy has eroded my shaving skills. I had erroneously come under the impression that shaving technology made it virtually impossible to cut yourself anymore. Not so much. This morning when taking a completely incorrect angle with my razor I managed to put a good size gash right over my top lip. It hurt like hell and it had been so many years since this had happened that I panicked and forgot what to do. I scrambled around the bathroom dabbing at the blood and throwing various products on my face in a failed attempt to make the pain stop. A quick note for anyone that hasn't done this, aftershave doesn't help. It just makes you cry. Eventually,I found the Neosporin after trying the cortisone, the lip balm, and the Aquafresh.

I am now sporting a very conspicuous band aid just above one side of my top lip. I'm pretty sure that everyone thinks I have a cold sore. I'm going to try and hide in my office the rest of the week.

That's a good cover. "No I don't have the herp, it's a cold sore!"

Does this mean you have to update the last line of your "about me"?

Dagromm said...

I don't have the herp. All you have to do is look at my profile to know that.

Dagromm said...

Aaaghhhh Gyuss you F'd up my response by posting at the same time!!!!!

No my profile is accurate.

More karma for you biatch! Your life will now be a series of blunders and faux STD's...

Wow just read my earlier comment substitute "it's a cold sore" with "it's a razor cut I got shaving this morning, seriously". In all my joy that Dagromm had hurt himself I didn't proofread my blogment...

How's the office hiding going?

Dagromm said...

Same as always. I shuffle papers a lot, close the door randomly, type on the computer. I must be really busy.
How's not working. I did it for a little while last year and other than worrying about bills it was pretty nice.

Dagromm said...

Q, thanks for the clarification. I was really confused. I'm going to go do something nice for someone to counteract my current bad karma.

Dude! Aftershave on a cut? It hasn't been that long since you shaved. I'd cry like a baby too.

Not working is da bomb. All the rich people are doing it.
