I was at the dermatologist's the other day. He's a tiny little man and a chatterbox. One of the reasons he's a chatterbox is that it distracts you from what he is actually doing. This is how it went with me!
Doctor had to take another mole off my body this time on my rib cage.
I mentioned we lived in the "snow belt" area; which means we get bloody snow whether we like it or not😕
Doctor getting ready for procedure........
Doctor: "are the ski hills open yet?"
Me: "I don't know?"
Doctor: "Do you snowboard."
Now this is where a video of this conversation would have made me millions on YouTube.....
Me: "The only bloody snow I have any contact with is when I shovel it!!"
Now what you don't hear me say to myself is:
"Is he a doofus or what, do I LOOK like I snowboard????? I am a woman the wrong side of 50, with not at athletic bone in my body.........I have the grace of a fairy elephant. Put me on a snowboard and I may as well have the ambulance all ready and waiting to put me in at the bottom of the ski hill.......that's if I can actually make it up the hill in the first place!!"
By the time I had processed all of this he had taken the mole off.............perfect art of distraction.......well done Dr. Chang!!
