The Not So Fantastic Reality:

The above story was inspired by the following tidbits I encountered today:

Remember... we're looking at the bug bites, not the ashy, lily-white leg.

ONE:       As I mentioned in my last post, I spent the majority of yesterday volunteering at a local animal haven. Usually I am very good about dousing myself with both sunscreen and bug spray prior to spending any amount of time at the haven, but for whatever reason, I failed to do so yesterday. As a result, I awoke scratching the dickens out of the back of my legs and ankles. Upon closer inspection, I saw that my lower extremities were both covered in mosquito bites. Silly Sam. Did you forget you live in Florida, aka reclaimed swamp land? Did you forget that any biting thing out there somehow finds you, before any other walking meat-stick and quickly makes a meal of any inch of your exposed skin? Ugh…  So, this afternoon, while waiting for the dryer to buzz, I started drawing circles around each bite. Laughing at my polka-dotted, very pale stems, I thought to myself, this should be a new trend! Forget henna tattoos! Get yourself a temporary tattoo in any shape… just slap some mosquito bait on your arm in a pretty lil design and wait for the magic!

TWO:       In case you didn’t catch it in the small print, the company responsible for this gem of a product is called TickleFight, LLC which is a reference to Dane Cook’s stand up that just so happened to be playing while I was writing this… hahaha, come on, I can’t breathe! Cut it out, stop it, I’m going to throw up…. Ahhhhh!!!!!  I had to punch my grandma in the chest to get off of me. Classic Dane… I don’t care what you say, that ish is fun-nay.

Love & Squirrels.
