A DREAM COME TRUE

Anyone that truly knows me is fully aware of my love for nasty skin, rashes and anything filled with pus! Derm was always my favorite topic in school and I'm pretty sure I was the only one leaning in closer to the over head screen when the professor threw up a picture of a nasty rash or abcess. When I came across the topic of epidermoid cycts I was in heaven. My friends use to tease me that they hoped one day I would get a nice and juicy one. Ever since school I have been dreaming one would walk my way! What could be better than a smelly pus filled cavity full of pressure and waiting to explode.
Finally, my dream came true! in fact it walked right into the office, I spotted it from a mile away. The size of three quarters stuck together on the side of an unfortunate soul's neck, so ripe and ready to burst with the slightest amount of pressure. I was praying it was filled with pus so I could drain it. Just to make sure, I aspirated it with a needle first and sure enough I struck gold. YAY, finally I would get my long anticpitated epidermoid cyst. I then anesthetized it and cleaned it up a bit then made my way in with the scalpel...ah heaven! Thick smelly curdy yellow fluid gushing out it was glorious, my dream had come true. The unfortunate soul kept saying 'I wish I could see your face right now because it seems like you are really enjoying this". All of my co-workers know of my fetish so they always leave the I&Ds (incise and drain) for me...I am the luckiest girl alive! If I could have any job in the world it would be to I&D abscesses all day. I know I'm totally disgusting but it absolutely excites me and makes my entire day worth while. Here is a pic that some what resembles what I saw but not nearly as fabulous.


p.s. yes, this is the extent of my excitement hence my very lame blog! I promise more to come after our fabulous trip to WA filled with family and snowboarding!

Jen...where have you been all my life? You are the luckiest person alive. I too share your dream. I'm seriously in the wrong field...all I get are boogers and wet pants and those just don't do it for me like a nice cycst would. Can't wait to see your WA pictures!

You are hilarious! I must admit that I love draining puss from people too, but I don't know if my love goes as far as you. Oh, and I was eating strawberries while reading that. Not a good idea. :)

Jen remember in Cheney when we were all talking about popping zits and joel said he wished that he could have a zit in a discrete place and it would be ready to pop everyday?

Martin Family said...

Beth, oh yes I do remeber but this was way better than any zit it was shrek size! I think Joel said he wished he had a perma zit on his stomach...haha!

Joel is such a nerd! I am glad that you are having a great time at work. I also wish that we were able to see you when you are here in Washington. Have fun! Miss you both.
