Oh, and another thing. I'm covered in spider bites from the weekend. Poison ivy doesn't get me (yet); mosquitoes bite and don't leave a welt. I react to fire ants, but they don't live here. Ticks are gross but obvious, and I've never had one long enough to get the big halo rash around it. I guess I have a low histamine reaction for the most part (unless it is oak pollen season and I'm frantically working with daisies wearing latex gloves, but come on, who wouldn't break out?).
But finally, finally, nature found a convincing, sure-fire way to get me. I don't think they're dangerous bites, but yikes, they are hot and raised and red. At least none of them are on my face. Small favors, thanks.
