***KLAXON*** blind pimple evicted after 8 years *with photos*

Just your average post-shower conversation: "Hey love, would you mind having a look at my back? I think I've got a new head growing." "Sure, oh yeah, I can see it, it... it... oh my god there's something coming out, what do you want me to do?" "Take a bloody photo!"

Bless him, my DH is a true fellow sporner. Best of all, today, two days after mount vesuvius erupted (neither of us thought it was all out, but he couldn't get any more at the time) we had another go. This time, he got sprayed envy but still he championed on, alternating between squeezing and taking photos. Just when I thought he was finished he shouted "OMG it's twinzzzzzz!" <faints in sporn heaven>

We're still not sure that it's finished - there may be more to come grin

Backstory: at least 8 years ago, I thought I had a blackhead or blind pimple there - just a small lump. No amount of tricks would make anything happen and eventually I just forgot about it. I've lived with Lumpy ever since, taken him on a few outings but never bothered with eviction proceedings as there was nothing visible on the skin's surface. Over the last couple of weeks Lumpy definitely got bigger and more tender with what looked like a widening pore over the reddest bit. Cue my conversation with DH as above.

Congratulations! Does your back feel any different, as if you've relieved any pressure or tightness?

Something squiffy definitely happened with those pics, at least they are there now.

Why thank you Iamcheeseman and sparechange <takes a bow> grin

RickOShay Thu 12-Oct-17 23:01:43

I am SO jealousgrin

ControlGeek Thu 12-Oct-17 23:02:10

Not really whisky, there's still a firm lump there and no blood or any kind of seepage. My prediction is there is a great big fuck off root too big for the pore. Going to wait a couple of days and try again.

Yummy !!!

tocas Thu 12-Oct-17 23:04:50
