Even better

October 7, 2008

My parents have both had various facial skin cancers. It was only a matter of time before it was my turn. The phone rang and the caller ID said: SM UCLA Dermato. I knew it was Dr. Kim.

It is cancer. It’s the kind that is not life threatening and very slow growing basal cell carcinoma (common in fair folks like me), so I’ll have it removed in two weeks. One on my nose, one on my chest. The grim reaper won’t take me here. This is easy. I know, if I were a cave man it would eventually take me down. But we can cut it out now. Right?

So, tonight, I went for a spin in my new car. The leather smelled great. The evening Hollywood smell was intoxicating. The colors were vibrant. Life was even better.
