Acne A Part Of Me

798 words - 4 pages

"The moment you've all been waiting for,it's finally here!"-said the compere,as she gained my attention.With each word she spoke,my heart pounded faster and faster.I was completely spellbound,her voice fondling my inner psyche.But then,I asked myself,what was I doing?I had been watching tv for nearly two hours straight.My neck started to ache as I lay on the couch like a sloth.I realized that I had seen hundreds of such deceptively swaying ads that expounded how their product was different,and how it would prove to be a turnaround.But maybe,all I really needed was a turnaround.Something that would relieve me from my forlorn misery.But what misery you ask?
