Zits, you guys. Ugh.

I had perpetually broken-out skin in high school. I remember it being far worse than pictures seem to have captured. I went on birth control two years before I lost my virginity (what ever happened to Matt Pietras?) just to get it under control, and it didn't even do that good of a job of making it somewhat bearable until I was in college.

But it was in middle school that I got my first big-ass zit (not to be confused with a big ass zit--no hyphen--which happened a few years later), and it was captured on film:

Being 12 in 1991 meant wearing polka-dot headbands and 7Up Cool Spot t-shirts, even if you didn't drink soda.

There it is, right in the middle of my cheek.

No big deal, right? Everyone gets zits in middle school, right? Well, not everyone's last name was Zitner.

I genuinely don't remember freaking out about it until someone started taunting me with the name thing. I was already teased for being a nerd, so mean kids would just add a D to the end of my name, and I'd be ZITNERD. Good times.

So, how about you? Today's QQ: When did you get your first zit? How did you react? Is your last name Pimplestein?
