Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “spot.” Write whatever image the word “spot” invokes.
It’s an important date, event, day, when all eyes will be on you and you get a spot!
Not one that is easily camouflaged with cosmetics, or one that is in an unobtrusive place.
Oh no. This has to be either in the centre of your forehead when you don’t have a fringe or on the end of your nose and is a perfect doozie.
Bright red and inflamed, with that horrible pus centre that makes it look like a red daisy on speed, it’s perfect for ruining not only your day, but also any photoshoots that are bound to come about, especially at weddings…………. YOURS!
Do you ignore it? Hell, how can you! It’s there and if you can’t feel it, you can certainly see the one on the end of your nose that is dazzling in its audacity of turning up on this day of all days.
Do you do what most do, and give it a squeeze? Hellsapoppin no! Experience has proven this is not the best idea as it makes the situation worse, and everyone points the verbal finger at you:
‘We know what you’ve been doing!’
So, creams and lotions, facepacks and concealer applied, you hope for the best that either people are too wrapped up in the moment to notice, or the photographer has a couple of tricks up his sleeve to blend it out.
