The Cold Sore from Hell
I really really cannot stand cold sores!!! I mean who really does.. and I am not sure if it’s a cold sore or a stress sore..I was sick for a while but this sore only showed up the day after I had a stressful day. Coincidence? I don’t know. Anyway back to this disgusting sore that has taken a life form of its own. If u don’t attack the initial blemish quickly enough it ends up morphing into an alien quickly enough. It is such a friggin distraction. This past weekend we had a friendly and I called over one of the players. I wanted her to play a joke on the referee at the coin toss and while we were talking she did not take her eyes off my sore. Not once. Talk about giving me a complex over the one I already had. That night I decided to take matters into my own hands and tried to speed things up. I desperately wanted to make it disappear.. and well.. things went downhill pretty quickly from there. I made things worse and today I look like I got into some scrap! My co-worker even asked what the hell happened.. I told him ‘you should see the other guy!’. 🙂
I toyed with the idea of adding a picture of my sore.. I don’t think so. Now I patiently wait as nature takes its course with the help of Vaseline.
