I've never had a cold sore in my life.
Until last week.
I know, right?
This left me asking myself a million questions, after I did the research and photo-search (eww...please do yourself a favor and never, ever do a photo-search of cold sores) to verify my ailment.
Question: Who have I been kissing?
Answer: I've only been kissing one particularly amazing fellow - and he doesn't get cold sores.
Question: Could it be anyone I've ever kissed?
Answer: Apparently not. They manifest within three weeks of being exposed to the virus. After the initial outbreak, this bugger of a virus can lay dormant in your system until all of the conditions are right to manifest.
Question: SO...where did I get this?!?
Answer: Has someone been stealing kisses from me while I sleep? I'm absolutely baffled.
