i just found this little bastard feasting on my blood. this is why i live in the city -- it's harder for nature to get on you.

in a moment reminiscent of the one where i looked at an x-ray of my chest and thought that i had a collapsed lung which a co-worker pointed out was actually my perfectly normal heart -- for about 14 minutes i thought i was dying of lyme disease. then i read this: "Components of tick saliva can cause a short-lived (24 to 48 hours) rash that should not be confused with EM."

i also learned that lyme disease is easily treatable.

the things you learn in the course of an ordinary day!
