ACNE. So you wake up in the morning and realize you’re breaking out. You know you have to work today or hang with your beautiful pimple free friends. Here you are in the mirror wishing you can march into work with a bag placed over your head or possibly reach for the largest sunglasses you own. “Some protection is better than no protection” you think to yourself. You find yourself squinting thinking that maybe the horror on your face will disappear. After that long sigh and the realization that you still must face the world, you do your best in trying to cover it up. Maybe make-up? Maybe you will compensate by telling a few extra jokes today?
