flea for your lives

I'm not sure if I'll be on tomorrow, so happy one-day-early birthday to roonblah!

On a totally -- *totally* unrelated note, I've been putting in untold hours and expense toward ridding my house of a sudden and unappreciated flea infestation. Where they came from I don't know, but they popped out after our recent storms, at the exact same time that clouds of mosquitos suddenly blocked out the sun in northeast Indiana. Much as I hate winter, this is one summer tradition I won't miss.

The amount of time and money I've had to put into cleaning and fogging is bothering me almost as much as the itching ankles. Almost.

My carpets should have been replaced when they went out of style, say the early 80's ... so that might very well be a factor. I sprinkled flea dust on the floor and left it there for almost three days in the hopes of killing the little buggers and their offspring, but I don't know exactly what was in the dust. I do know I shouldn't have been walking through it, but since the bites were working their way up my legs and I was actually spraying bug spray *on myself*, I'd say the dust was the least of my stupidity.

It's amazing the foolishness someone will resort to when the itching drives them crazy enough. (Could I get a column out of this? I mean, if I survive?)

Desperate times. Desperate measures.

Totally believable.

And I definitely think you can get a column out of this harrowing experience. Think of all the adversities you've survived.

I think I might be able to get *two* columns out of this! *Itches for joy*
