Yep...spring is definitely here. I picked a damn tick off myself this week. Was I running in slow-motion through fields of knee-high grass? Nope. Was I hiking up a sweat on a killer trail through thick woods? Negative, goose.
I was sitting in my truck, windows open, eating my lunch in the parking lot at work the other day, beneath a beautiful tree. One of only like 2, maybe 3 trees, tops, in the parking lot (there is a grassy section in the middle and the truck was parked up to that section).
Two hours later, I was sitting at my desk in an office, scratching the hell out of the back of head where it vaguely hurt, at my hairline where it met my neck, thinking, "What's this bump? Pimple? Scab? It wasn't there this morning."
Then it dawned on me.
"Oh shit, it's a tick!!" I scratched that baby off with my fabulous French manicured nails and once I brought it into my eye line and confirmed my suspicions, I shrieked like a little girl and dropped it onto my pant leg where it began to crawl for freedom. (Insert extreme *SHUDDER* here.) Grabbing the only thing handy at a desk at work, my trusty sticky notes, I squeezed the blood sucker between the sticky notes and ran for the bathroom where I flushed it down the toilet, post-it note and all. R.I.P. you little bastard.
Moral of the story? Don't sit in your vehicle eating your lunch, with the windows open, under a tree on a beautiful spring day. Keep yourself locked up tight. Inside. Out of fear. Stay away from the blood-suckers.
Kidding. But beware of ticks!!!!
