What Am I? A Flippin' Whale?

Well, it's official. I've been told that I am "middle aged". When the crap did that happen? It feels like yesterday that I was graduating high school and moving on to the next stage of life. And now I am middle aged?

I went to the dermatologist today because I have these things on my face. Bumps really, but I am a picker so they annoy me. Now I need to control my picking and accept that they are now a part of my appealing beauty. You know what they are? Barnacles....yeah, you know like the ones whales get, but different. Barnacles?! When did I turn into a whale and not realize it? How does this happen?

The dermatologist tells me that is common for people who are middle aged to get these and it's no big deal. And then he adds "You aren't that old", which I'm not and proceeds to tell me that he does see it in some young people...who are in their 20's. Hey, I'm still in my 20's! I guess I shouldn't shoot the messenger. I think I need to go have a good long talk with Father Time and Mother Nature. Who's with me?

Ah crap I've got a few bumps too, I may be a whale along with ya! At least we'll have a whale friend to share our pain with right?

(Make sure you kick that doctor in the balls the next time you see him)

Good grief, that doctor needs a refresher on bedside manners!

Banacles?! Where's SpongeBob and Patrick?
Well I don't need to go to the doctor to already know that I am middle aged...even at 33. And I have sun spots which makes me look like I need to fricking exfoliate. But I can't because it's not dead skin...it's dirty skin.
I think I'll start wearing a brown paper bag.

Dr C. is great so I know he tried to tell you this as humorously as possible. And if you in your 20's I am still 18.
