Just got back from the Portland Dermatology Clinic. I went in thinking I would just get a consultation and would have to make an appointment for the actual procedure, but as it happens they were having a slow day and offered to do it right then and there. I was surprised to find that the procedure didn't really hurt at all, just felt really... weird. Weird enough that I almost blacked out at one point. But the whole thing was over and done in about 20 minutes.

So the cyst on my neck, the one I carried around for 12 years, is finally gone. I'm hoping it will leave a cool scar. I don't have nearly enough scars.

Afterwards, I strolled over to Skinnidip and procured some frozen yogurt with blueberries as a reward.

Huzzah for a cyst-free self!

On the other hand, it's been 12 years. If you'd left it just one more year, you could have saved it and bronzed it like a holy relic, then offered to let people worship at the Cyst-teen Chapel.

I know, I know, that was beyond bad.

Wow, Frank has me barely able to breath with his comment. lol hehehm... sorry I missed out on pay homage to your cysteen chapel.

WOOOT!! So glad it was fast and easy. I know.. those can feel like they are pulling out your face almost with the pressure depending on how they went about it.

If you want more scars, I highly recommend mountain biking. :-)

considering the placement, you can always tell people the scar came from a very intense night of making out and that the hickey just was too much to heal away forever.

my daughter had a cyst removed from her scalp. For years she lovingly referred to it as "Bob".

And for a few weeks everyone can think you're a neck tattoo hipster!

Oooh, jsut think of all the neat stories you can come up with to explain that scar! Knife fights, zombie wars, funny-yet-harrowing tales of daredevil stunts gone awry.....
