Woke up like any other morning, went to take a shower and realized I had this burning sensation in a portion of my left leg. I got out of the shower and since I didn’t have my glasses on I was thinking what the heck is this? Something was attached to my leg! ACK!! ICK!! Talk about gross. I grabbed it and yanked it off and it dawned on me, this thing must be a tick, dagnabit I probably shouldn’t have just yanked it off.
I put what I yanked off on the counter, it was such a tiny thing and a few seconds later it was no longer there! WTH?? I looked around and it had crawled into the sink, oh no you don’t! I’m saving you so I can figure out what the heck you are! I got a lunch baggy and put it in so Ronda could see what it is. I just can’t see anything that small.
So when I got to work this morning I checked out what I should have done by looking online, pretty much everything I did was wrong. They say don’t touch it with your fingers, don’t squeeze it blah blah blah… great. Now it’s night time and I showed the mark it left behind to Ronda and she says “I think the head is still in there”… nuts…
After a few hours of trying to figure it out, we still don’t know if I got it out or not… so we’ll see what happens after a few days. It’s such a small critter I’d need a magnifying glass to see it properly and I don’t have one.
Don’tcha just love it when nature gives a parting gift for visiting? I was going to post a picture of the little bugger but it’s just plain gross looking. Makes you think how this thing fits in the great scheme of things.
