#AtoZ : Zits

Ever wonder how long people have been getting zits? They've been around for my entire life, yet I don't remember seeing historical photographs where pimples protruded from young noses.

Take Joan of Arc who died at age nineteen, yet not a blemish on her face. Surely she had at least as much stress as the teens of today, but no one ever sees pimples on her face.

Or how about King Tutankamum who also died at nineteen? Look at that face. Okay, it's black, cracked, and aged, but the skin is smooth. Where are the zits? Did he use ancient Clearasil? Wait a minute. What's that spot on his right cheek?

Nope, I didn't find historical pictures with acne, so I did a google search and BINGO!  Did you know that ancient Egyptian writings mention pharaohs with zits? So that's what they meant by the curse of boils in the Passover story! The pharaohs were covered in pimples.

Yep, zits have probably been annoying teenagers since the cavemen days.

"Doff, don't eat that greasy mammoth thigh or you'll get bumps on your face."

"Yes, Mother." (Rolls ancient eyes)

Factually, the word "acne" was invented in ancient Greece. As for the word zit, it popped up in the dictionary in 1966 with an "origin unknown" label. From that, the 60s brought us "zit-coms." Ie., sitcoms aimed at teens.

I first learned about zits in grade school when my brother complained about black heads. I didn't know what a black head meant, but when my friend Jean came over, I told her my brother had them. She didn't understand how my brother could have a black head and neither did I, but I learned. 

As I aged, I got my very own pimples. I especially remember the friendly zits that would pop up to say, "Hello" whenever a big event was on the horizon.

When it comes to zits, nothing beats this scene from Animal House. Enjoy.

#WW Sephora

On a recent trip to Sephora, I noticed 
some products with interesting names.

I tried the sample, but didn't feel a thing. It must have been defective. I wonder if one should return this product if unfulfilled.

It wasn't.

I once had a parent who liked to use big words to show how he was so smart. When requested at an IEP meeting, he told us, "I cannot attend the IEP tryst." It must be because I didn't wear this makeup.

End of School Craziness

Perhaps you've seen the owls circulating Facebook.
I am totally the owl on the right; so to celebrate all of us losing our minds, I've created a logic problem about us at the end of the year. It's called Tired Teachers, and it might give your third through fifth grade students a chuckle when they read about what exhausted teachers do in May.
You may purchase this little gem for just $1 
Plus it comes complete with an answer key-a necessity because let's face it,
We're Tired!
If you like logic, please check out my store. I have 
plenty of problems to challenge bright kids.
End of School

Family Christmas News Letters

Dear Family & Friends,

It's been a fabulous year for us Griswolds. In the summer, we loaded up the kids and had a fun vacation to Walley World. The best part of a family vacation is the togetherness we experienced as we drove from city to city with the family.  We met interesting people in St. Louis, an even more interesting woman along the road, and had great service in a traditional western saloon. We stopped at Cousin Eddie's place and got to drive Aunt Edna home.

     When we finally reached Wally World, we got the best spot in the lot. We road all of the rides and even met Mr. Walley in person.

Now that it's Christmas, we have the most brilliant light display in the neighborhood. Plus, I got a great bonus from my boss. Life is good when you're a Griswold. 

Take care and have a Merry Christmas.

Clark, Ellen, Rusty, & Audrey
