Then there were the medical ones...for all manner of bumps, lumps, fissures and gawd knows what else.
"Scar Tissue or Keloids?"
"The Heartbreak of Psoriasis?"
Gah! I hadn't had my morning tea yet, and I'd have graphic photos burned into my brain and would have made a mental note to look up disorders like "keloids" when I got to the office. The fissures were not geological in nature. And, the hammer toes didn't look much better "after."
How about Dr Zizmor? Call "Dr Z--You too can have beautiful, clear skin!" "Thank you, Dr Z! You saved my life!"
One one of my last weekends in NY before I moved down south, my cousin Chris, who is a certified master life coach http://www.christinabrandt.com/
and Mary Ann Wasil Nilan, the tireless spokes-survivor and founder of http://www.getintouchfoundation.org/
stayed at my place while in NYC for the big Oprah Winfrey conference.
After breakfast, Mary Ann took our picture at the corner at the top of my block, while I was holding up one of her foundations' "Daisy Wheels" (a breast cancer symptom primer for girls.) As Mary Ann backed up to take the picture, she started laughing hysterically. We looked up and saw the billboard that was overhead. I wish the picture was more clear. My old neighborhood has gentrified...but still has that NYC cheeky-ness about it! Ha ;-)
