Making Mountains Out of Mole Hills

Yes, it is really almost 2 am.

I just got home... from work.

How is it that pimples can just show up out of nowhere? There you are, minding your own beeswax, when you glance in the mirror and there appears to be a huge appendage struggling to grow out of your face? No warning, just out of nowhere. It is just like those crazy mushrooms that magically show up in your yard in the the morning.

How is it fair that I can have pimples and little crinkles around my eyes at the same time? It seems like I should have at least been granted a decade or so of perfect skin before the wrinkles started in.

wrinkles are a sign that you actually use your face and you didn't just buy it off of ebay

It is funny that you said "minding your own beeswax" in reference to pimples....I just read this an hour ago:

Personal hygiene left much room for improvement. As a result, many
women and men had developed acne scars by adulthood. The women would spread
bee's wax over their facial skin to smooth out their complexions. When they
were speaking to each other, if a woman began to stare at another woman's
face she was told, "mind your own bee's wax." Should the woman smile, the
wax would crack, hence the term "crack a smile" In addition, when they sat
too close to the fire, the wax would melt, therefore, the expression "losing
face."
