Annual Tune-Ups today at the doctors' offices. As I get older, I'm always weighing the need to be truthful about all my body's quirks with the need to put up with the hassle of seeing specialists, confessing bad habits (eating too many Mother's Day chocolates), and venting about the aches and pains that are a daily fact of life. I already see a dermatologist and an oncologist (told today it would be for a total of TEN years, not the five I was thinking it would be), and am hoping not to enlarge that circle. So I was happy that the Primary Care Physician gave me a clean bill of health.
Then, as she was leaving, she said, "But I'm glad I'm not in charge of your skin."
