I think the first time I noticed the monstrous quality of bug bites this year was when I saw Darryl's wasp mishap on his leg. That little sting turned out to be a huge swollen mess. Well, now it's my turn...
About two weeks ago I was mobbed by mosquitos on my way from my car to the lake. I had already put on my wetsuit so they feasted on my feet and hands. Of course, I didn't notice until later that night when they started to itch and itch and itch. Unlike the relatively innocuous skeeter bites of my childhood, these suckers swelled and looked quite alarming. They have finally just about faded away but two days ago some freaking thing bit my neck and my left ankle and middle toe.
It is SOOOOOO itchy and the bites on my foot have swollen up like Darryl's leg --- well not that bad yet (LOL!) -- but huge nonetheless. When I woke up this morning, the redness from the bites had spread and there is a freaking blister (WTF??##$$) on my toe! I've never had a blister from a freaking bug bite before!!!
What is up with the bugs this year? Have they mutated? AAARRRRGGGHHH!!!!!!
