He Said, She Said: The Dermatologist

hsss3a

Setting the Scene: I have this weird skin tag thing on my neck that’s been there (and growing) for a few months. It’s annoying but not painful and I haven’t had time to deal with it yet. The following conversation took place after I accidentally scratched it while getting ready for a Christmas party.

She Said: Is it bleeding?

He Said: I don’t think so.

She Said: Are you sure? I don’t want to pull on my sweater if it’s bleeding.

He Said: Why don’t you just go to the dermatologist and get it taken off?

She Said: That’s $40. 

He Said: So?

She Said: Why would I pay $40 for something I can do myself for free. 

He Said: Do it how?

She Said: Tweezers and a sharp knife. That’ll take care of it in 15 seconds.

He Said: That’s awful.

She Said: But it’s free.

He Said: It sounds painful.

She Said: Only for a man.

He Said: You should not be slicing things off your body with a knife.

She Said: You’d be amazed at what I can slice off with a knife.

He Said: You terrify me.

She Said: Aw. Thanks.

He Said: Not a compliment.

She Said: Nicest thing you’ve ever said to me.

He Said: You’re twisted.

The End.

    Ha, that’s funny. You should definitely get it done at the dermatologist. They’ll numb and cauterize it so it won’t bleed and heals faster and you could have any other suspicious moles etc. checked out and it would all count as one visit. If you do it yourself those things bleed forever.
