Yeah, yeah. I have moles. Or rather, I had moles. I guess counting the 7 or so I had removed to day, I've had maybe 25 total. Why was I blessed with these ugly things anyway? And why did people insist on reminding me about them?
"What's that on your neck?"
"Are they cancerous?"
"Those things are ugly. You should get them taken off."
"Eeew. That's hideous! Can I touch one to see what it feels like?"

(And yes, I've had these all said to me at one point or another. The person that asked to touch one was denied the opportunity, personal space reasons... )

Cripes. As if I didn't know I had them? I mean, it's not as if I've ever looked in a mirror, or felt them at all. Nope, I was completely oblivious to their existance. It's basically the same as calling an obese person "fat" -- they know they are -- and unless you actually have some constructive advice, shut up.

At least they're gone now, save for some little bumps (the procedure doesn't remove them entirely in some cases). And while I normally don't like to do anything for looks, I'm glad I had them removed. They were friggin' annoying, let me tell you. Some would snag on my shirt; one on my nose would get irritated when I used a tissue, etc.

So, basically, I'm in pain now. They sting a bit. And one particular mole is being lab tested for cancer. Whee! I can't wait to find the results out; the anticipation is killing me.

{This concludes our test of the emergency dermatology alert system. Had there been an actual emergency, do you think you would have actually read this? Not likely. Chances are you would have run away while I screamed. Oh well, such is life.)
