As if the chigger bites I picked up over the weekend weren’t bad enough, some other form of bug life had a go at my arm yesterday evening as I was playing a round of frisbee golf. I thought I saw something fly towards me out of the corner of my eye, but it could have been a spider hanging from a web that was being blown my way. In either case, before I had time to react, I felt something like a pin-prick on the back of my arm. I know it wasn’t a wasp, because a wasp sting feels nothing like a pin-prick.
I don’t know if I was bitten or stung, but the entire back of my arm is red and itchy today, with a brighter red patch in the area where the little @#$%er got me. You can see how much the redness has spread better in the picture below, which shows my natural skin tone on the top of my arm.
I still love living in the country, but I could do without the aggressive bugs.
