Moles, Yuck.

My friend is going to the dermatologist today to get her moles checked out.  She told me to wish her luck because whenever she goes, something needs to be biopsied. 
 
When she mentioned her appointment, it reminded me of my traumatic mole removal experience.
 
I an not a mole-y (yes, I made that word up) person.  I have a few, but they are few and far between.  When I was in grad school I developed this weird mole on my upper side.  It happened to be placed right where my bra hit, so it would frequently rub off (yuck), bleed, and scab over (yummy, right?). 
 
Being the hypochondriac that I am, I decided to get it checked out.  I was thinking that I'd go in there, show the man my mole and go along my merry way. 
 
NOT. THE. CASE. 
 
The dermatologist shaved the mole off of my side on the spot.  He didn't give me time to fret over it or to prepare myself for the bic razor.  He wanted to test that mole, and pronto.  He shaved my mole off and then left it on the counter in a little SEE THROUGH container. 
 
Ugh. I almost died.  I dunno how I'm going to give birth when I faint at the sight of my own blood and can't handle seeing a little mole in Tupperware. 
 
 
 
 
Ewww. I'm dry heaving just thinking about that poor little mole.
 
Weird question of the day: Where do moles go after they are biopsied and tested?  I'm just picturing a giant mayonnaise jar filled with moles near some scientist's work area.
 
puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuke.
