Like a Surgeon......Cutting for the very first time.

Alright since you have decided to continue with my ridiculousness. For years I have had this skin tag/mole thing on my leg and I hate it. I got it sometime around age 12 and it has never gone away. It looked something like this:
|But with less hair|
So finally about 2 weeks I got pissed off at it and after googling removal options for about 20 minutes. I grabbed my pair of meat cutting scissors from my knife block, some ice from my freezer and a wash cloth and CUT. THAT. BITCH. OFF.
I can hear your face in disgust from across the internet.
Maybe not my finest moment. It took a few minutes for me to get up the nerve to cut the thing off but then it one quick snip it was gone. (Also yes I cleaned those scissors before I used them and no, I have never actually used them to cut meat before either.) The gaping hole in my leg bled like a motherfucker for a good hour before it finally started to trickle off. I must have gone through 6 band-aids by then. I then finally put on an Anti-Biotic band-aid and went to bed. I changed out the band-aids pretty regularly for about 3 days before decided to let it air dry (also because the band-aids were giving me more scabs and bruises than the actual hole).
The funniest part of all this has been the reactions from people when I tell them I did this:
Nugs: ew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that's so gross.
Coworker: What is wrong with you?
IMac: Are you a cutter? Do you need more attention?
Mom: You are so my daughter. I did the same thing a few years ago.
It looked a little red for awhile but it's pretty much healed up now and looks just fine. I'm gonna be pissed if that damn thing grows back though.
