I have lots of freckles, so when I have a physical or go see a dermatologist, they stare at my skin in amazement, take a step back as if I were radioactive, and educate me on what cancerous skin marks look like, and tell me to regularly monitor my spots. So I’ve learned about what skin spots should and shouldn’t look like.
Today I saw a mark on Allison’s leg that looked scary. I touched it and it felt scabby, so I asked her what happened to her and she said nothing. She explained she hadn’t had a cut there or anything. I got concerned and asked her to go see a dermatologist if it wasn’t a scab.
She laughed and said Rosie could probably lick it off. It was dried chocolate. I should have known.
