NEVER lose an opportunity to bring your mother into it

Posted by Lizzie on 03/22/05

We post this not to gross you out but to comment how, when we had to have a similar boil lanced, our mother’s only comment afterward was that she wished she could have watched.

  1. Wow, between Dooce and this David Sedaris essay — an Anthology of Great Cyst Stories (Cystories?) seems imminent.

  2. are cysts and boils the same thing? eh, never mind, me just looked it up. ’tis. I always thought cysts were internal or something.

  3. Hilarious. I like “cystories.” I could contribute to the anthology, but it would be a long essay trying to describe the limits of extreme satisfaction. Oh, that POP!, I miss you. Come back to me.

  4. Funnier still to hear Sedaris deliver the essay, making scrunched up pinched faces when describing Hugh’s moment of “The Horror!”

  5. My mother didn’t just watch, she was the one doing the lancing.

    Then she’d remove the hot-spot. (Took divots out of my small bod she did.)
