Sadly, the only person who got to see the result of all my hard work was my own mother who by law is required to follow up any compliment with, "Is that a pimple on your forehead? Here, let me touch it."
Seriously though, I thought that my mother was the only one that felt the need to poke (and point out) every zit I have ever had.
(coincidentally, my mother is currently visiting...and it is very nice to have her here. extra good news: i currently have no zits)
