Once again I found something from Mama Kat's Writers Workshop that tickled my fancy. Go check out her blog and all the great entries.
Is plastic surgery an option? Without being vulgar, write about the body part still attached to you that you would most like to dis-attach and replace with a better one.
During our Easter Party my mother turned to me and said, "What did you do to your face?" This is a question I have been asked several times in the last month. I emailed my much older sister to tell her the story and to see if she knew any "good" Doctors. She is getting older and couldn't remember the doctors name. Could be the first sign of Dementia.
When I was a teenager I hardly ever had a blemish on my face. Once in a while I would get a zit right in the middle of my forehead. Nothing hideous or gross, just a zit. Below is evidence of my blemish free complexion. I was lucky. I don't think I ever washed my face with Noxzema like a good 70's girls would have done.
Back to my mothers comment. I had a woman at church ask me if my hubby had been hitting me, (Which DID NOT sit well with him. He now thinks everyone thinks he beats me! Poor guy. And he really is just the sweetest thing ever!), then a guy at work I hadn't seen for about six months walked in a few weeks ago and said, "What's that thing on your face?" then last night at dinner, after my mother sat down at the table, my sister (who really is a smart alec!) said to me (In a very loud voice) "What did you do to your face?" Then she laughed, an evil laugh. My mother, who is sitting next to me, wheels around, stares at my face and says the very same thing. The same thing as before. I gave my sister an eye roll. If she had been closer I would have kicked her. HARD.
I have never thought of having plastic surgery. I am pretty much OK with my sagging parts. And I have had three C-sections already. I am not interested in surgery. But lately I have been thinking more about going "under the knife" or at least having a chemical peel or burning this thing off my face.
Here is the HIDEOUS mark on my face that my mother keeps mentioning. This is covered with concealer and makeup! I am looking for a Dermatologist in Salt Lake County. Anybody know any good ones? My sister is keeping hers a secret!
