Well, those blasted chigger bites are really something else. I thought I'd gone to that place opposite of what they call heaven yesterday, the itching has been so intense.
Imagine my joy today at discovering ANOTHER rash. Yep, chiggers aren't enough for some folks, so I've gone ahead and contracted a nice healthy case of poison oak on top of it.
Of course, being someone who doesn't like to do things halfway, I've gotten a doozy of a case. It's all over my neck and face. My upper lip looks as if some boxer caught me with a left hook, my cheeks are so swollen I look like a hairless red squirrel trying to cache a bushel of walnuts in his mouth.
Now, I know what that plant looks like. I avoid it, assiduously -- though I've been in it before without ever having gotten a rash.
Well, until now, anyway. Hahahahaaa.... boo hoo hoo!
Can you say Calamine?
