Sneaky old lady
I did something a little sneaky today. I have a particularly large keratosis on my temple. For years, I've wanted to have it removed, but since keratoses are benign, removing them is considered cosmetic, and insurance won't cover it, so it's an out-of-pocket expense. This morning when I saw my dermatologist, I told her I was thinking of putting wart remover on it. "Oh, no!" she said. "Let me take care of it for you." A (free) spritz of liquid nitrogen later, I'm feeling a little guilty and a little proud of my cleverness.
