$^%$(^!&$ it hurts! it hurts!

actually the past 3 days have been torture, Sunday night I noticed I had a sore ear... after messing around a bit I noticed that I had a pimple forming in my ear... throughout my life I've been very fortunate to have avoided such plagues as bad acne and such, so i rarely get any pimples remotely close to my head, if i get any pimples at all, typically they are on my shoulders??

being one who just can't stand pimples I decided to try to pop it... bad idea. the wife took a bobby pin and using the looped end attempted to push on it to burst it... no, no, NO, NO, OW, OWWWW! stop.

so that only pissed it off.

Monday morning, the car had to get inspected so while at the garage sitting and waiting for my car i decided to poke around my ear... seriously there was nothing else to do, no magazines, nothing... so I'm now obsessed with pissing off this pimple in my ear in attempts to destroy it...

i tried everything to no avail the pimple remained, just very sore and very pissed off.

Tuesday, I wake up and my ear is sore still, I decided that perhaps a hot shower would open up my pores and release this thing, but no...

so on the way to work this morning i looked in the mirror and noticed that if I turn my head just so and push back on my ear I can see the nasty bugger... now I'm driving and poking it hoping that it would explode... nope

i get to the office and forget all about it... i had to pee so I got up and went into the bathroom and once in the bathroom i remembered my ingenious way of being able to see my pimple friend, so i walk up to the mirror, tilt my head and presto! i can see it!

well, with two fingers I squeezed, and squeezed, finally after a close inspection to my shorten finger nails (damn grooming obsession) I noticed a little bit of liquid on my nail... did I pop it?!

nope.

so attempt 2 at squeezing...

then it happened... On this very night...
10 years ago...
along the same stretch of road...
in a dense fog...
just like this...
I saw the worst accident I ever seen...
There was this sound...
Like a garbage truck!
Dropped off the empire state building!
And when they finally pulled the driver's body...
From the Twisted... Burning... Wreck...
It looked like...
THIS!!!!!!



nah, i popped it and my ear feels much better. that was some nasty goo on my finger... it had shot to my knuckle :barf:

OMG... thats f'in sick. We need some regulations on this forum.


On a serious note: I dont know if I have ever had one "in" my ear, but I have had them in my ear lobe. But pliars worked wonders.

You know, I read the thread title. I should have known not to click on it.

Why did I?

Holy god.

We need a mod to delete this thread, STAT!

Damn, Brae, from now on, I'm not going to be able to think of you any other way than "Firemarshal Bill Popping an Ear Zit and Spraying Puss All the Way to the Knuckle". Good job, ear-zit-puss-man!

Dude...I've got a pilonidal cyst, but I don't run around telling everyone about it!

What exactly is that, and how does one deal with it.

come on now, i'm more than happy to share my quirks with everyone... c'mon, don't make me start the "butt wipes" thread...

i'm very particular about grooming.

this cyst you speak of, I've read a few threads in my day about these buggers... if you'd like I have an asian friend who will be more than happy to tell you how he delt with his.

I'm not going into details, Taipans...see, I have TACT!

Suffice to say it's not life-threatening, it just hurts sometimes...and getting rid of it would mean surgery, which would mean no physical activity for 8 weeks, which would mean no gym, no running...eff that. I'll suffer with it as long as I can.

And yeah, Brae, if you have some kind of eastern medicine hoobajoob way of getting rid this bastard that means no surgery, I'm all ears.

Ok being a smartass made my stomach turn :

Pilonidal means "nest of hair." It is common to find hair follicles inside the cyst.
