yet another reason why i am not a doctor

the following is a true conversation with friend, who may or may not have skin cancer, and who called looking for comfort but instead got me:

friend: so their going to scrape away layers of my skin until they don't find any more potentially cancerous cells.

me:
well it's just your face. think of it as a free nose job.

friend:
but it's on the side of my nose.

me: that nostril always looked fat anyway.

How ironic. My BossMan just got back from having that procedure on his left nostril and ear. He kinda looks like a hawkman b/c the bandages form a beak. Its a good look for a lawyer.

I hope your friend laughed.

That sucks that your friend has to go through that, though.

Note to self, pack the sunscreen number 50 for trip to So Cal and MX.

Well if you can't go to a friend to make you feel better, who can you go to...

I guess in your case, a total stranger.

My nostrils or so phat they need four letters.

I had something funny to say, but then I saw Westly and Buttercup are in here and became star struck.

I just stick a Trim Spa up each nostril and that keeps them in check. I put one in my vagina too, because I wanted to rejuvenate it without having to do all those Kegel exercises.

"when she comes, send her down!"

You are every veteran's best friend.

Sometimes you need that though. To laugh at your situation. And don't they say that laughter is the best medicine? :)

I wish I'd known you when I had nose cancer !

Hey thanks everyone for your well wishes!

I'll send pictures of my nose after the next biopsy for eveyone's viewing pleasure.

Blogger MyUtopia said...

LOL, your poor friend.

I ended up making my BossMan a nose cozy (adapted from Knitty's nose warmer pattern). Maybe if you make one for Miss W, she'll truly forgive you?
