"Hey, don't get bummed out. It's better than chemo
This is what my dermatolgist
told me today as he was performing the 4th wide excision
on my back. I've had five moles removed. One was melanoma
and the rest have been dysplastic, which means "Uncancer
ous but having ambition to expand the empire." I've been laid up and in pain since early December
, and it's starting to get on my nerves.
Today was when I learned that I have another three month
s of this to go through. Because all of the moles have had tendancy so far, more have to be removed than originally thought. And by removed I mean cut out. Biopsied
. Excised. Ninja
Also, my first real girlfriend IM
's me last night as I'm on my way to bed. She tells me she's marry
ing a guy she's been dating for 2 and a half months. It's a Church of Christ
wedding, so there won't be any dancing
, any music
, or any booze
I said "Why not just toss it in at the end of Sunday
service and save everyone the cost of formal wear
She said, "But it's still a wedding! You don't have to have booze and music and dancing for it to be a wedding."
I said, "I'm not talking about the wedding, I'm talking about the reception
"Oh, well we'll just stand around and talk
and stuff. It'll be great!"
"Won't there be any food
I can spike
"Uhm.... no. Not really."
"You know, ancient warring nations that performed sacrifical virgin killings had better weddings than this
After that the conversation
was pretty much downhill. The only other interesting thing I learned was that the exact carat weight of the engagement ring is 1.88
Does it seem weird to anyone else that she knows the EXACT carat weight of the diamond
, down to the hundredth?
It never would have worked between us.
