I'd say something profound
(Or at least attempt it)
But the searing itch of
Eleven mosquito bites
On two ankles
Is too distracting


  1. I will trade that searing itch
    for my bone chilling ice and cold
    as I long to open a window
    and wait to be bitten..........


  2. Ironically, this is the theme for our personalized calendar this month:

  3. Your here, and thats what matters... thx

  4. One would think Shakes that after the fourth or fifth one it would be time to either change places or get the bug repellent out.

  5. Oh, Mimi, I can't say I agree with you. One can always turn up the heat and wear slippers... but this itch wakes me up at night. It has lessened, though... hopefully it won't be such a traumatic suffering today.

    Stephanie, I love demotivators! So funny, and right now I could use a laugh.

    True, Jeff, and so are you... and that is a good thing.

    The problem with mosquitoes, Walking Man, is that you feel them only 20 minutes after they've already bitten you, and since I'm a magnet for them, I can rack up 20 bites inside of ten minutes. I'm lucky to have gotten away with only 11. Not that I feel lucky.

  6. For the record, itching is torture. I had a mystery rash a few weeks back that completely destroyed my personality.

    I still remember my poor baby girl (now 16) who stepped in a fire ant hill and having to break open dozens of bites. Sobering. I hope I never have to do that again.

  7. Hello, hello!!! I am promising myself to try and read your blog everyday, as I can hear your voice from the page!
    Hoping you are out of that hotel soon. :)
