Not quite perfect

Amalah asked on her Advice Smackdown about beauty imperfections. Now, as hard as this may be to believe I have one of those (yes, i said one...stop laughing!!).

Hey!  She died young!I have this mole on my cheek. When I was younger, I used to think it gave character to my face in a Marilyn Monroe-ish or Cindy Crawford-ish kind of way. I was even kind of ticked off once when it got air-brushed out in one professional photo I had taken. (You twit!! Don't remove my beauty mark!!)

But now...

Yes, getting older has...changed it. Now it is...bigger. It sticks out like a quarter of an inch from my face. (Did it used to do that?? I don't think so.) I don't remember when that happened. And also...

EWWWWW!! has a hair growing out of it. Yes, much like the witch in Hansel and Gretel or Margaret Hamilton in the Wizard of Oz, I now have a mole with a hair growing out of it. On my face.

Not. Attractive. At. All.

I keep saying I am going to go to a dermatologist and get it removed but it seems (at least here in Florida) that dermatologists have waiting lists until 2015. (sunscreen, people; sunscreen)

Why did you change, oh beauty mark of my youth?? Why are you now gross and hairy?

*sigh* Getting older. Not for sissies.
