Edgar

I have a mole, two inches above my navel.

It’s getting fairly large, so I think he needs a name. I considered Patrick, but that didn’t really fit his demeanor. Edgar is a better choice, because it incorporates his quirky and generally non-threatening side while still leaving the vague impression that at any moment he may transmogrify into a malignant melanoma stuffed full of pigmenty death.

Then again, Edgar is a bit of an antiquated name, and doesn’t coincide well with the fact that he lives inside of graphic tees under cardigans most of the time rather than finely tailored shirtings.

Also, this conversation would be much less awkward if my dermatologist and psychiatrist were the same person.
