Your Facial Fauna

It's an inescapable reality - almost certainly you have lots of little hitchhiking buddies living on your mug and there's not a damn thing you can do about it.
They're called Demodex folliculorum, and they feed on your skin oils. During the day they burrow into hair follicles like this:



And then at night they march around your face and procreate like horny little beasties because their life span is only measured in days. The older you get the more likely you are to host these things. They vary widely in size, but if you pluck an eyebrow hair, or an eyelash, you will probably see little diagonal stickety outs off the hair root. Under a microscope they look like this:



With normal hygiene they don't pose a significant problem. It's just that hardly anyone realizes that these creatures are burrowing and fucking all over his or her's face. The older you get, and the more you've cuddled and nuzzled, the more certain they're a part of your life.
Gazing at a partner it might be more appropriate to think of significant others.

It's terrifying when they grow several feet in size and come at you by the thousands.
After drinking that special punch :)

It’s not near to becoming strongly related to the details,
yet my wife only approved and witnessed the phrase tumblr on the
watch's screen. In their own view, the lady genuinely observed booger, along with talked about the key reason why I'd been studying with regards to boogers.
I haven’t giggled over-time in a few many days.
