Here is the photograph and my story:
Sugared Aloe Tips
The first time the doctor took my cast off, I cried. Whose dead and shedding leg skin was that staring back and mocking me?
“OMG!” I wailed. “My skin is forever changed!”
“Oh don’t worry about that part,” said some gum chomping medical assistant. Her hair was a popular shade of purple. She wore a nose ring and had several layers of earrings on each ear.
“But my skin!” I protested. My skin! The softest part of me you’d always claimed.
“Don’t worry about that now honey. Skin’ll grow back softer and stronger when you rub a little aloe and sugar on it now and then.”
But I did worry. Like any other woman would worry. I’d spent a lifetime taking care of my skin. Making it that soft barrier between leather and silk.
