Who remembers the children’s book, If You Give A Moose A Muffin? It’s the story of a hungry moose who, once given a muffin, wants jam, and then more muffins, which requires a trip to the store for more muffin mix, but first the moose needs to borrow a sweater and socks, but not before he makes sock puppets, and then paints the scenery for the sock puppet play, which makes him so hungry he wants another, anyone?
Well, Bossy wants to write her own children’s book. It would be called, If You Pop A Whitehead Pimple. And Bossy is an expert in this arena, having been scared silly against this activity by Bossy’s dad very early in Bossy’s childhood.
You see, if you pop a whitehead pimple, it will pop:
But if you pop a whitehead pimple, the whitehead pimple will also pop below the skin:
And when the whitehead pimple pops below the skin, the pimple bacteria will release into the surrounding membranes:
And when the pimple bacteria releases into the surrounding membranes, it will clog adjacent pores:
And when the pimple bacteria clogs adjacent pores, it will result in more pimples:
And when the pimple bacteria releases into surrounding tissue within proximity to the brow, it can be carried directly to the brain through a capillary:
And when the dangerous pimple bacteria is carried directly to the brain through a capillary, it can cause a brain abscess:
And when dangerous bacteria causes a brain abscess, the brain swells:
And when the brain abscess causes the brain to swell, you’ll need to be hospitalized:
And when you’re hospitalized, you’ll probably need stuff like an oxygen mask:
And if you have to wear an oxygen mask, you’re going to get lots of pimples:
Bossy can sum up her fear of popping pimples in this way: Sister mercy just pass the hot washcloth and be done.
