So I went to the doctor today

When I had my annual checkup, the Doc suggested that I go to a dermatologist to have my bumps and protrusions and various (ahem) blemishes looked at.  So I did today.

It appears that I'm entirely non-malignant.  This will no doubt come as a surprise to some.

Even better, the Doc was a no nonsense, tell it like it is sort.  I was out in 10 minutes, along with a "come back in 2 or 3 years" sort of message.  I wonder if there were more of these sorts that the cost of health care would be lower.

Love me some dermatologist. Mine saved my life. No shit. People often make fun of Dermatology as a medical profession. Not me. Not ever.

Congrats on the clean bill - that's a very, VERY good thing.

Goober, you seem to be around my age. I remember you talking about this, and it was one of the reasons I went. Glad you're still with us - this blog wouldn't be the same without your comments.

Rev. Paul, thanks. All I could think of was Nancy Astor's remark when she heard that a doctor had removed a benign tumor from Winston Churchill. She was said that they're removed the only non-malignant part of him. Made me chuckle, but *after* the clean bill of health.

I'm 33. I assumed you were in your late 40s based on the age of your younguns.

Isn't it more accurate to say that your skin is "entirely non-malignant"? ;-)

Lawrence, heh.

Goober, in my fifties, actually. But like Doc Holiday said in Tombstone, I'm in my prime.
