Ticks, ticks, and more ticks (or Does this look like a tick bite?)


So, our internet went out. In the course of getting us reconnected to the digital world, I found two ticks. One dead and dried up and one alive and crawling toward me, on the hunt for a “blood meal” according to the Internet. I tried not to freak out, but once our digital connection was reestablished, I told Angela what I found and we frantically scoured the Internet for what to do. We considered packing up our bags and leaving the next day. Changing rooms. Changing apartments. Changing islands.
Angela panicked and grabbed the Oreos. I examined every bite on my body (all two) to suss out whether or not they had been inflicted by ticks. Now, we’re looking at each other wondering what to do.
