Skin Deep by Dave Horlick  Mon, 27 Mar 2006 16:31:34 GMT

Meg is examining Bridget's face with some kind of magnifying visor. | Meg: Your face is dotted with cone-shaped, red inflammations approximately 5mm in diameter. | Zeke: The dreaded "cootie". Why didn't we destroy the last of this scourge when we had the chance?Bridget: I think a better explanation might be zits. They're pretty common among adolescent humans like me. | Meg: Are you in pain?Bridget: No. But they do look kind of gross.Zeke: Surgery? | Meg: Her health plan only covers popping.Bridget has popped a zit & studies it under the microscope. | Bridget: Look at this: they're filled with miniature creatures.Bridget: ...creatures that are round, gold-colored, and clumped together.Zeke: So that stuff must be causing your zits! | Bridget: Maybe, but not necessarily.Bridget: I could put some on my neck and see if I get a zit there... | Meg: Yeah, but we don't know anything about this stuff. It might be dangerous.Bridget: Meg's right. We'll have to put this one aside until we can think of a safer experiment. | Zeke: You win this round, acne. But I swear an oath: we will beat you!
