Pimple Poppin' Partners

I did something else that I never thought I would do.
Before I was married,
I believed that the most disgusting thing on earth
was for couples to pop eachother's pimples.
I couldn't imagine doing such a thing.
I mean,
Who could do that?
Why would you want to do that?
How is it possible to pop a pimple on your significant other and still find them attractive?
Do they not think it's gross?

After 11 months of marriage,
I can now answer all of those questions.

Q: Who could do that?
A: ........me.
Q: Why would you want to do that?
A: because of extreme pimple pain and insufficient arm length...it was serious.
Q: How is it possible to pop a pimple on your significant other and still find them attractive?
A: I'm not sure how that works.
But I still think my hubs is a sexy beast.
I'm not real sure how he feels about the situation.
Q: Do they not think it's gross?
A: yes, of course it's gross
(and slightly enjoyable....did I just say that?)

So how did this go down?
It's all Tyler's fault.
He came up to me and said,
Babeeeeeeeeeeeeee, can you look at my back?
Something is really sore back there.
So I looked.
And smack dab in the middle of his back was Mount Vesuvius.
Ewwww Tyler, you have a bump the size of Texas. Please pop that sucker.
He proceeded to turn his back to the mirror and attempt.
But his attempt failed.
He couldn't reach it....
so he looked at me.
Tyler. No. Don't even ask.
But Autumn...it hurts SO BAD.
If you love me, you’ll do it.
Of course he would throw that out there.
So I hesitantly agreed to relieve his pimple pain.
I squeezed.
He screamed.
It popped.
I dry heaved.
And that was that.
I did it.
Something I said I would never do.
But that’s not it.
A couple days later,
I developed Mount Everest on my back.
In the ONLY place that I couldn’t reach.
But I tried, by golly.
I tried my hardest.
The only thing I did was make it even bigger and more painful than it already was. 
I asked my husband….
to pop it.
Just saying that makes me want to vomit.
He agreed.
He squeezed.
I screamed.
He squeezed.
I cried/laughed.
He squeezed some more.
It popped.
And that was that.

 I remember when I would have rather died that let him see one of my pimples.
My how things change.

Hello 1 year (almost) of marriage.
We’ve crossed another one of those lines.
You know,
the comfort lines.
Once you cross them,
there’s no going back.

Here we are..
pimple poppin' partners.

What comfort lines have been crossed in your relationship?
Happy Friday Eve!

You're so cute! Everything that you don't want to do but end up doing...is the same stuff I swear I'll never do. lol. Congrats on crossing another line ;)

The Adventurer said...

Remember how your marriage tales make me infinitely happy? Not because I am only happy that you now pop your hubs' pimples, but mostly because you tell me about it. And in the most hilarious way possible.

Autumns, you da best.

Autumn Ingram said...

haha thanks! it's crazy!

Autumn Ingram said...

I'm so glad! I'll always tell you about it, don't you worry!

Val said...

we had to do this on our HONEYMOON! the back of my neck broke out due to a combination of a too-tight halter top bathing suit, sweat, and sunscreen (ewww) and my husband had to pop them for me to try to get them to heal faster. unbelievable lol

Mrs. Robinson said...

Haha! I am totally fine with popping pimples, but my husband won't let me near them. I guess that makes me the gross one...haha

Lindsey @ The Hill House said...

Oh my gosh that's disgusting! LOL!! I have never popped on of my hubby's zits, ever. And we're almost 10 years in!! There are just some things that I won't do, popping zits and pulling nose hairs being right there at the top of the list. Why, I don't know, but that just crosses a big ol' line for me and I'm not going there. :)

Moods Swings said...

Lauren said...

I happened upon your blog, saw this post and it spoke right to my heart! Haha! My boyfriend and I have been together for nearly 5 years...and I have gone from never even wanting to hear him say the word zit...to bothering the living heck out of him about letting my pop every.single.one. he has. Because..I enjoy it! Don't ask me why, I do NOT know! :)

Autumn Ingram said...

Oh my gosh, talk about crossing those lines fast! haha

Autumn Ingram said...

I've started scoping Ty's back out for them ;) I wouldn't admit that to just anyone haha.

Autumn Ingram said...

Ten years and no pimple poppin'?? You're a strong woman;)

Autumn Ingram said...

Thanks, girl! I hope you've had a great weekend as well!

Autumn Ingram said...

Thanks so much, girl! Happy (early) Anniversary!

Autumn Ingram said...

Thanks, lady!! :)

Autumn Ingram said...

hahahaha I am so glad! I think the longer we are with someone, the stranger we become:)

Tina @ Like Ordinary Life said...

Let me just say... last night lying in bed, while my husband was scratching my back, he popped this aweful pimple that popped up (thanks, 105 degree weather and sports bras!). And I just sat there and thought... wow, we're really married, aren't we?
Adorable blog, by the way! I'd love to swap buttons! Let me know if you want to :) likeordinarylife@gmail.com

dreaming en francais said...

As gross as pimple popping is, there's something sweet about this whole story too! LOL loving your blog lady! xo


jes @ twosmuppies said...

This is real life. It really is.
Real life also consists of Chris telling me to pull the stray back hairs he has.
Uh HELLO? Disgusting.

Andrea D said...

Oh my gosh...is it weird that I was laughing and gagging simultaneously throughout this entire story? Ryan thinks it's weird to swap pimple pops...but Jes, I feel you on the back hairs.

Autumn Ingram said...

Hey!!! Isn't married life full of "oh my gosh" moments? Lol. I will be emailing you shortly girl!

Autumn Ingram said...

Hahaha thanks so much!

Autumn Ingram said...

Oh the back hairs. Hahaha. Our guys don't know how lucky they are;)

Autumn Ingram said...

Oh no, not weird. I was also gagging and laughing (because #1 I couldn't believe I did it and #2 I couldn't believe I was actually making it public haha) as I was writing it. It's gross!

Sally said...

That means you have the best kind of relationship! Pimple poppin' and you're still attracted!
