Stamps on a Passport

I look at my very imperfect body and see its patches of history, like stamps on my passport. The stamps aren't the kind of thing that would make me throw off my towel at the gym or be the first to jump naked into a lake. But like a good story, they remind me of where I've been, and the annoying and endearing people I've met along the way.
