I Will Send Outlanders Amongst You

p: i am going to put a corn remover on my scar.

m: mmkay.

p: because that's the kind of interesting person i am.

m: mmhm!

Though possibly don't try this at home, kids. I do not have the best judgment all the time about surgering myself. I wrote a short story twenty years ago, inspired by the gaping wound that used to be this scar actually, about a woman who picked a mosquito bite until her leg got infected and had to be amputated.
