My Poor Nose

I have a small bump on the bridge of my nose. It's basically a mole, raised, but skin-colored not brown. It's usually not very noticeable.

This morning, I was putting away the pants I'd worn yesterday. I grabbed them by the leg, and lifted them quickly up. I forgot that there was a belt still in them. The buckle swung up and smacked me on the nose, right between my eyes. Ouch! You know how, when you do stupid things like that, the first thing you do is hurry to the mirror to check if you've left a mark? (Well, I do at least.) But generally there never is, and I was running late, so I just winced and ignored it.

This evening I glanced at myself in the mirror, and I found that the mole on my nose is much more obvious than usual! It is now outlined in red. I have injured my nose-mole. I am such a freak.
