21 Random Thoughts You Have When You Notice A Random Mark On Your Body

What the heck...?


Hey, you! Yeah, you. I will change the subject at risk of sounds like a cheesy infomercial. Have you ever been hanging out anywhere and realize that your body has magically developed a scratch, bruise, or mark? This random appearance is typically in the most unusual place. How does one feel and what does one think when they first notice these temporary imprints?

Well, I'll tell you…

1. How did my body create that?

2. Wow, I didn't know my body can turn that color.

3. I wonder how I got this mark?

4. Was it from the kid I babysit?

5. Was it stepping the wrong way on the sidewalk the other day?

6. I didn't know my body was capable of having such a big black and blue mark.

7. I haven't felt any pain in this area, so I have no idea how I got this.

8. Did someone attack me without me realizing for me to get such a big scratch?

9. I wonder if my scratch ever bled without me knowing or it always looked this way?

10. Will it scar?

11. I wonder when it will disappear?

12. I wonder when the scratch will vanish?

13. Will this skin cream help get rid of it?

14. Should I go to the doctor?

15. How is my skin so sensitive?

16. How is my body so prone to injury?

17. Will anyone else ask me about how I got this mark?

18. Should I think of some bad ass story to tell them about how I got it...?

19. ... or will they know that I'm totally lying about that epic story?

20. Does it look gross?

21. Can my makeup cover this up?

If you're an active human, or even if you aren't, you're bound to suddenly observe some unusual speck on your body. You may wonder how long the scratch or scar has been there without you realizing. Will this become a symbol with a story behind it, or will it quickly go away? Regardless, this happens to everyone at some point or another. Life has many mysteries, and miscellaneous scratches and/or bruises are some of them!

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
