"Do you want to see the picture of her face again, too?" asks my daughter (this being the picture the doctor has already seen.)

"Sure," says the doctor--and foolishly starts swiping backwards through the images on my phone. The photos she sees, in order...

--A ziplock bag labeled "Rabbit Organs"
--A gingerbread man decorated in leather fetish gear and a ball gag
--My son's EDM recital video
--That gruesome shot of my knuckle with a chunk taken out of it from the mandolin slicer.

It was only at that point that I managed to get the phone out of her hands and say, "Let me go ahead and scroll, it's pretty far back..."
