I don't know about you, but I realllly love scabs.
Granted, the injury part of the process stinks, but luckily you have the scab phase to enjoy, so it all evens out.
I love picking scabs, I love resisting picking scabs, I love picking up a corner and peering under the scab, I love the fresh pink skin under a scab, and I love holding my scab and inspecting it once its fallen off and done its duty.
It's a feeling of ... I created this!!!!!!
There could be a nuclear explosion right now, and years from now aliens could find my scab and clone me and I will live again.. goddam scabs are awesome.
But unfortunately I am confined only to enjoying my own scabs.. and I don't really injure myself that often to get many to fawn over.
So.. I would like to pitch to a Lifestyle Channel, a TV show called: SCAB STORIES
Scab Stories (which I would host) would follow the stories of various people of differing ages and injuries and the healing process of their scabs..
I would have children who have fallen over and constantly pick at their scabs.
I would follow teenagers around skate parks waiting for them to injure themselves so I could film the scab story from the very beginning.
I would find upper middle class snobs who have scabs and follow them around whilst they resist picking their scabs
I would get Celebrity Scabs
I would cut myself so I had scabs
I would go to vets and get animal scabs
I would go into a laboratory so we could all see Magnified Scabs
Man that sounds like an awesome show!!!!!!!!!!!!
Where's my TV deal??!?!!!
