Today, one of my great friends Aaron Weidner (of The Paper Hearts and The New Tragedies) will be a changed man. Today, at the age of 27, Aaron will be saying good-bye to a life-long companion. Today, at 11:00, Aaron will have anesthesia injected into his neck so that his birthmark can be removed.
While at first, and still now, I was saddened by this action, it's more than likely a safe move on his part as some birthmarks develop into skin cancer. Interestingly, almost everyone has a birthmark, and twice as many girls have them than boys. They're usually found in the neck or head region, but most birthmarks go away as children get older.
I'll miss the birthmark, but the birthmark didn't make Aaron who he is. Good luck!
