Cancer! Sounds so ominous.
Cancer surgery - sounds even worse.
I have been such a good boy.
I had a no-big-deal skin cancer removed today (out patient surgery - on the bridge of my nose, near my right tear duct.)) I have - up to this point - resisted getting any mileage out of it. I have resisted making the following pronouncements for cheap effect:
"I have cancer"
"Did I tell you I was having cancer surgery?"
"I have cancer and I am dying" (aren't we all dying?)
They cut it off / out today & will sew it shut tomorrow, assuming they got it all.
Until then . . . pity me while there is still time (& I get a clean bill of health).
