My tick paranoia reached an all-time high yesterday.
During the weekend, while doing yard work, I got a few mosquito bites. (Mosquitoes love me.)Since my subconscious has absolutely no willpower, I clawed at the bites. Now I have a series of small roundish scabs. One in particular, is very dark in color.
Today, during one of my regular brain lapses caused by stress at work, I looked down to see this dark spot. And it itches.
My first thought?
Holy crap!!!!! It's a TICK!!!!! Where's the tweezers?!? Where's the germ-X?!?
Then - Wait, oh yeah. It's a SCAB, genius.
