Observation: wandering around with a bandaged face is akin to having a superhero skill. I’m invisible! People look at me, and their eyes slide away. . .
Except, of course, the people who stare, point, and whisper.
I thought I was used to this sort of thing but I forgot, or refused to believe, what it always feels like. My default setting is to ignore whatever I cannot change and this would fall under that heading, but honestly, the whole thing is tedious.
I’ve been thinking I should write CANCER across the bandages. Just to, you know, clarify.
