I've said it before...

... and I'll say it again... ladies, NEVER leave the house looking like a pig. Because you never know when you'll meet your future boyfriend. Or see an ex-BF. Or, even better, a friend of an ex-BF.

I stopped at Heinen's on my way home from work the other nite and ran into one of The Divorcee's really good friends. (The Divorcee and I would often double with this guy and his GF, and he's one of the friends who Facebook friended me after The Divorcee and I broke up.)

The friend started the conversation by saying, "Wow, you look really great, AAB." Then, after a few minutes of chatting and catching up, he again said, "How is it possible that you're not dating anyone?"

I wanted to say, "Go ask your stupid friend." But I refrained and just replied with a giggle and a "I have no freaking idea." We ended the conversation by agreeing to grab a drink sometime soon to catch up. But I have a feeling the whole "bros before hos" mantra may come into play before that ever happens.

Regardless, it still felt nice to get a little sweet love from a boy who you just know was going to call his friend as soon as he got in the car to tell him what just happened. Aaaah, the joys of ex- gloating.

And then juuuuuusssssttt when you're starting to feel like maybe you're getting your mojo back (after a Valentine's weekend date and this unexpected compliment-filled run-in)... SMACK. A giant underground zit appears on your chin. (You know the ones... the flat-ish hard blemishes that just linger under the surface of your skin for days and days?!?!)

Aaaaannnddd... back to reality. But, hey. At least the zit didn't surface until after the friend run-in, right?

those are the worst. I'd recommend a trip to the dermatologist. A quick injection will make that disappear in a few days.

. . . and so the saying goes, "Timing is everything." Talking about the zit, that is. Only you would have a zit with a brain!

those are not the worst zits, the ones on the top of your nose are the worst.

Anyway, wtf, just because he was nice you think he cares enough to call your ex right away? doubt it, and if he does, it's probably to have a laugh at your expense :)

Yes, DEFINITELY a blessing that it waited to rear its ugly head! Now pop the crap out of that sucker.

I Look Awesome Run-Ins with exes are my favorite flavor.

Allison - I took matters into my own hands, so no need for Dr. Derm.

Blogmom - you're right.

Slopmaster - never had a zit like that, so I guess I wouldn't know. Sounds like you get a lot of them.

LiLu - I know, right? Fun!

Slopmaster - I'm pretty sure IF Ex's friend called him, it was probably to tell him, how hot AAB looked.
