And then it bites me.
And then I swell up and itch.
And then I reach for the Benadryl Itch Stick. (And that thing works, man, with none of the drowsiness of Benadryl.)
Here's the latest problem I had, though, just as a cautionary tale to you folks. I was outside on the deck with a friend late one night, and I got about 5 bites, even though I was covered in mosquito repellent, and even though it was close to midnight. The next day I was outside, in broad daylight, and managed to get 11 bites. (I hate mosquitos) So, I was very itchy. I grabbed the itch stick and applied it liberally to all bites. Itches be gone, I have no time for regular Benadryl and the mandatory nap that ensues!
Then suddenly, I felt so sleepy... *insert snoring here. After a 2 hour nap, where I slept like the dead, I realized I may have had too many bites for the benadryl itch stick to handle without making me drowsy. Whoops.
Now you might be wondering why I am telling you this story. Or you might have found it mildly humorous like I did.
Aside: (Luckily I didn't have to be anywhere. It was Labor Day weekend, and I had told a friend I would be sitting by the pool, after said friend had said his weekend consisted of working. I do believe I got what was coming to me.)
The point is, folks, for the next two days, I could not set foot outside. One more bite would have pushed me over the edge. But, luckily, I another project to take on indoors. I had failed to water some soybeans in the garden, so I had some seeds to save!
Like so! Soybeans for everyone!!! (If I can just remember to water.) =) Happy Monday, everyone!
