Quat the heck is your problem?

1. A spot, pimple, or sty. – Collins Dictionary1
2. Et tu, complexion? – The Nut

Dear zits,



What my esteemed colleagues (myself and I) were attempting to communicate is that you weren’t invited to our thirties.

Look, we had some fun times back in high school. Remember how you used to like to pop up all huge and volcanic on my chin right before special events like prom and graduation and Free Slurpee Day at 7-Eleven? Oh you, always the kidder!

But that was a long time ago. We’re all grown up now…kind of. And I gotta say, you and your friends all suddenly showing your little faces around here again like we’re back in Teenagertown when in fact we’re settling quite comfortably into Chateau Thirty+, well, aren’t we sort of above that kind of thing by now?

Do you have any idea what kind of looks I get plunking a bottle of Clean & Clear down next to my Olay Age Defying night cream at the drugstore?

Confused. Confused is the answer you’re looking for. And I’m no less bewildered.

Just tell me now: is this going to be a recurring thing, like the way flared pants keep going in and out of style, or is this just one last hurrah? Is Puberty: The Sequel going to expand into a full trilogy when I’m fifty-six? Issue a special collector’s edition re-release at eighty-one?

Please say no.

Even if the answer’s yes, say no anyway.

Nutty, Age 105

  1. I still got zits in my 30s as well! So did Mum. She always said it’s because we’ve got young skin and I thought yeah right. I’m over 40 now and it’s finally stopped exploding on me, and I have to say Mum was right. Still ageing but not as fast as some of my 40 club mates. So: have gross face craters for 20 years longer than peers, but look younger than them for the 20+ years before we all kick the bucket. Winning?
