(Part two in a two part How to Live Like Marianne series. It generally only takes two steps to be like me. I lead a very simple life.)
(This DOES NOT, however, include how I choose what shoes to buy or wear. That’s a 2 month intensive course.)
While I was at my parent’s home, I noticed a red mark suddenly appear on my forehead. In the middle of my forehead, actually. It felt slightly different as well and due to previous skin cancer experiences, I knew something wasn’t right.
I made an appointment with my dermatologist and went in. She diagnosed it as precancerous and she burned it off of my face with some nice Liquid Nitrogen.
But she made a comment that started a slight spending spree. She said, “How old are you?” with a very confused intonation to her voice.
I responded “42.” And she said, “Oh. Okay. It makes sense you’re getting skin cancer cells then. I thought you were much younger.”
I FOOLED A DERMATOLOGIST INTO THINKING I’M YOUNGER THAN I AM!
Happy Dance. Happy Happy Happy Dance.
The next day I went elsewhere to get Botox for my migraines and she was selling medical grade skin care. So I bought the line. Because if I can fool a dermatologist with my skin, I’m protecting it and making sure the lines stay away. Away away away.
Plus it all has sun screen and I need that due to the whole skin cancer problem.
I also bought a new hat. Due to it’s tag.
But now I have everything and don’t plan on buying skin care for at least 6 months.
I have to save my money for shoes.
