Would you go under the knife for vanity's sake?
I never thought I would.
Well technically I am not going under the knife or even injecting poison into my face to get that surprised and frozen expression but I am going to laser some things off my face and neck.
I have a few spots on my face/neck and there's this one big spot under my eye and it looks like a tear and frankly I don't want those spots ( they have been diagnosed as Seborrheic Warts ) and its all part of ageing and those fucking spots and skin tags bother me. They tell me that I am getting old, they tell me that I am vain no matter what I said decades ago about ageing gracefully!
So I went to see the skin doctor, who told me I could laser them off but they would return, to which I replied, well than I will be back to see you as long as I can afford it! I couldnt use any insurance for the costs as it was a cosmetic procedure................which is when it hit me,
Jeez...... I was doing something cosmetic! I was altering my appearance (well parts of the appearance) to make myself look better. Part of me hates that I have been found out as a liar ( I wanted to age gracefully and embrace getting older......no dying of hair, no doing anything to keep ageing away....said by a 20 year old me!!) and a vain liar at that. but part of me (that voice in my head named Simone, my alter ego) says that its actually a clean up of the appearance rather than an alteration, which makes me feel better.
So Monday afternoon I will be lying in the doctors office having a few bits of me lasered off. Will I post pictures (NO, too vain for that) but I will probably moan about the pain and if it leaves scars will just die and hide away forever!! ( drama queen Simone's voice)
