What a Stitch!

See? It's not so bad. Really nothing to get all worked up about. Instead let's get worked up about the vast expanse of forehead you can see and you haven't even gotten down to my eyes yet.

I thought I should post this before I get the stitch out tomorrow morning. I'll let you know what the results are but, like I said, nothing to worry about.

Which is to say that I expect it to be cancer actually but they've said it'll be the non-body-devouring kind and they'll scrape or punch or cut it out and put another stitch in and it'll be over. I'm OK with that and if I'm OK then you should be OK too, right? (There's been some freaking out on the part of people who are not me, I'm trying to tone it down, which is probably obvious to you by now.)

(Photo credit goes to Steph. Thanks Steph! It's a lot harder to take a photo of a specific part of one's forehead than you might think.)


  1. Hold on. Hold on.
    You can't just post that like you are talking about getting your period?
    Remember St. Elmo's Fire?
    You have to say those words softly and approach them delicately as not to freak us all the fuck out.
    I am adding this of my list of reasons to drink more tonight.

  2. I know it's all fine and dandy like a hard candy let us know, though, how goes it tomorrow. Great pic!

    I believe Tyra Banks refers to that as "a fivehead".

  4. Good luck with that, I hope they got all of it on the first try.

  5. I'm not freaking out - I'm not the freaking out type when it comes to stuff like this - but I AM concerned and I DO care and I STAND at the ready if there's anything you need.

  6. Wait, what?! Jesus, Kizz. Is there anything I can do? Keep us posted, okay?

    I'm glad to see I'm not the only one taken aback.

    Feel better soon and don't scratch your boo boo.

    I'm snickering at Sam's comment whilst at the same time feeling a bit incredulous that Tyra Banks is that witty.

  8. Sam I actually heard the Fivehead thing on TWoP long before Miss Tyra had TV shows. They always used it to describe the wide expanse above van der Beek's eyes. But yeah, I've got one, it's no use trying to fight it.
