Atomic Bombshell

MVP Awards

November 28th, 2004

After suffering with this pathetic bout of chicken pox for a few days, I think I’m ready to hand out some awards.

Behold the “MOST VICIOUS POX” award winners…

For providing me with a persistent tickle that is irritated by even the slightest air current, the award for Most Subtle Yet Effective goes to the pox on the tip of my right ear.

To recognize their extraordinary teamwork, the award for Best Cooperative Effort goes to the colonies that have settled the areas at the sides of my upper torso. Your proliferation has been amazing.

The award for the Biggest Superstar goes to the giant pox located on the middle of my spine. You placed yourself in the least accessible place and then expanded to the size of a dime.

Next up is the Humanitarian Award which goes to the single pox on my face. Thank you for making your home on my left temple and then refusing to procreate. You are the Mother Teresa of chicken pox.

Last but not least, I must recognize the Overall MVP award, for the pox that has consistently provided the highest level of agony. This goes to the pox on my left nipple.

Give ’em all a big round of applause for their hard work. They have managed to drive me completely insane despite the best efforts of Claritin and Tylenol tablets, Aveeno Colloidal Oatmeal baths, Sarna lotion, and even my darling spray-on Calamine. Good work, guys!

Actually, big thanks to all of you for your product tips and thoughtful get-well wishes. They are much appreciated. I’m hanging in there… Hope this crap is over soon!

    Thank heaven for my awesome dermatologist and his mad skillz with various lasers. I’ll be counting on him to handle some post-illness clean-up… I feel broke just thinking about it.

    Holy shit. I am SO sorry you’ve got the pox. This sort of freaks me out because I’ve never had them and, well, don’t want to get them. Hope you have a relatively non-itchy, quick time of it. πŸ™

    awwwwwwww. take care with the poxes.

  • 11. Lisa  |  November 29th, 2004 at 8:23 am

    Your skin has had a rough few weeks. First with the mysterious fungi and now the pox. Any idea if the two are related?

    get well soon πŸ™‚

    Not good. I had the chicken pox at an adult age as well – my son had it and I never had it before – didn’t even know I never had it. Like a bomb it hit me – it was not fun, didn’t look good and the itching? – oh god!

    Hope it goes by fast for you.

    Wow – what a creative way to deal with your pox! I had a lot of fun reading your awards and accounts of the different pox. Glad you could have some fun with something that sounds so annoying. Get well soon! πŸ™‚

    I had the pox when I was a little boy. I don’t remember it. Last year I had a flair-up of the same virus that causes chicken-pox (herpes zoster) and had SHINGLES. I was on pain meds for three weeks and had all sorts of nasty blisters and pussy drippy oozy wounds on my back.. YUCK

    So when I say “I feel you pain” I really do πŸ˜‰ Glad you’re getting better!!

    Get well soon princess. No scratching. I will smack you with my smacking stick. I said *smack* no *smack* scratching. Thank you.
