Recently, a friend in Canada told a story about a young woman out errand running. The young woman was wearing short shorts that were so scanty that her hiney was hanging out in the back. What really caught people’s attention, though, was that something was sticking to said hiney. Upon closer examination, it was found to be a fully engorged tick. (Mind you, it takes several days for a tick to fill up!)
Then, last night, a mosquito managed to get inside of Mommy’s clothes. It crawled up her pant leg and bit her along the edge of her undergarments. Now she has a bunch of itchy welts “where the sun don’t shine”… and she can’t scratch (at least not in polite company).
This should serve as warning to all those who go commando – sometimes it is better to have your privates covered up so critters don’t get them!
