Minor Miracle

Because I spent so much time in the sun when I was younger, I go to my dermatologist every six months. During my recent trip, I had two suspicious places sent off to be biopsied. While with the doctor, I asked about an itch in my groin and was assured it would easily be cured by using some cortisone at 1% strength. He added that it was an OTP (over the counter) product which didn’t require a prescription. I made up my mind to pick up some soon but, since the pharmacy was not on my way home, I postponed the purchase. When I did decide to go to the Walgreens where I purchase all of my medications, I happened to look over the coupons I had gotten at my last visit there. The one that stood out was: Hydracortison 1%, $2.99 with this coupon. Was that a miracle? No, since it was only a minor itch, it was only a “minor miracle.”

    Because you are not dead, I believe the procedure for your ‘suspicious places’ was a biopsy….smile!
