When I was younger, and going through that wonderful stage of acne most of us suffer through (although I sorely wish my older self could go back in time and squeeze the *&%^ out of my younger self’s zits and blackheads!), and the pores on my nose were huge and packed full of icky blackheads, I always referred to them as strawberry seeds.
Seriously! It came to mind one wonderfully hot, summer Maine day when I was out with my mother at the Pick-Ur-Own Strawberry fields over by Two Lights State Park. I put my hand on a perfectly ripe, big as my hand, sweet fruit – and like a bolt of lightening (or perhaps more of a sizzle of static electricity off my polyester shorts) and realized those seeds looked exactly like my blackheads! Multitudinous, annoying, and too difficult to pick off one by one without getting red stuff everywhere!
And that is exactly what memory came whirling up when I started watching this video. I’m sure if I worked hard enough I could rekindle that state of “nosedom”, but alas, I am addicted to my medicated apricot skin exfoliate and nice, steamy hot showers. My pores have spent to many years behaving themselves.
Luckily – we have guys like this willing to share their carefully maintained strawberry noses with the popolgist community at large. If you can’t beat them, join them. If you can’t join them, watch their video on PopThatZit.com!
