The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, The Uglier

The Good: there was no cancer in the right lobe of my thyroid.

The Bad: I do not have my all-clear yet. I have been referred to the BC Cancer Agency for followup and possibly more treatment.

The Ugly: a cashier called my scar "heinous" today. I walked away without responding and then hyperventilated in my car.

The Uglier: after discussing it with Shawn, Twitter, and Facebook (I kind of hate myself a little for typing that) I have come to the conclusion that "heinous" is just young person speak for "badass" (like how "wicked" or "sick" are actually good things) and I am just too old and out of touch to know it. So ... yay?
