Chiggers.... and then some!

By: actual , 5:28 AM GMT on August 08, 2008

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?

Hey, Hi! :)
Sure do remember you
you were the local yokel
who moved to the Big Mosquito State :(
Florida is probably better for having you there... :)

The chiggers and resulting allergy, not having permission, are dissipating. And the sooner they're gone, the better! I swear, I wouldn't wish this on anybody!

Last time I got a case of chiggers, I decided that never getting them again was a good rule of thumb. Clearly my attitude irked them... ;(
