|The nicest looking cold sore ever.
Well, herpes sucks. In it's varying forms, it stays with you forever, waiting for your immune system to crash. Yes, you all are thinking of genital herpes, which, I am proud to say, I do not have. Yay for me. I do get cold sores. I have had chicken pox. I once had a pityriasis rosea outbreak. I also have had mono. These are all in the extensive, inbred, dysfunctional herpes family.
Herpes is there, waiting for me to get sick, to drink to much too frequently, to get old and frail. It's lurking in the dark shadows, planning it's next comeback.
Herpes, however, will never show up in my romance novels. It's just not hot.
So, there is my H is for Herpes. Not nearly as exciting or scandalous as you thought it would be, huh?
