I remember Anna’s 21st, traveling to her parent’s house on the bus, when she pointed out a small red bump I had on the underside of my nostril. I was reasonably self-conscious about it, and had scratched it to bleeding a few times in an effort to self-cure. A cherry hemangioma, and nothing to worry about, though it would take me months after her birthday to actually go to the doctor and have it removed.
