Lesson 1521 – New looks

By the time you read this I will already be in surgery getting a new look from my friendly oncology surgeon. (I’ve asked for the “Meryl Streep circa 2009” look, we’ll see how it goes.

I wrote about my little cancerous pre-existing condition during the whole healthcare debacle. It seems they found a tumor in my face and the only way to get it out is to get it out.

So in I go.

But no worries, in order to amuse myself, I get to endlessly repeat this joke:

Hey, does my face hurt?

No, why?

Cause it’s killing me!


(what? Too soon?)

Anyway, the face I’ve had for all these years will be looking a little different in the very near future. And so in preparation, I’ve tried out a few new looks.

Here’s the “I’m young and I get that whole emoji thing” look:

The “I shot an elephant in my pajamas” look: (and how he got in them, I’ll never know.)

The “I’m a dedicated gardener” look:

The retired beachcomber look:

The “I have (lots of) kids” look:

And the “everything is going to be just fine” look:

Catch you all on the other side. Go out and do something you love today.
