A Whatsit

This morning, a student interrupted me to tell me there was a bug on my head. I brushed my head off, but she said it was still there. Then she wondered if maybe it was some kind of mark on my head. I don’t have a mirror in my classroom (I need to fix that), so I got my phone out and took a picture:

But I couldn’t see the picture very well because I had my contacts in, and my near-vision is blurry when I’m wearing my contacts.

I forgot about the whole thing, but when I got home, I remembered and looked in the mirror. It’s a red spot that has developed over time. I think red spots like this have a name, but I can’t seem to remember it.

    Is it a cherry angioma? Spellcheck is telling me I spelled that wrong, but I looked at the website twice, dang it!

    A mirror for your room – a quest! How exciting! Try to get a magic one.

    It’s actual a barnacle of aging. Enjoy!
