book cover humor

I'm going to need an ocean of calamine lotion

I am covered, waist to neck -- including face, arms, and part of my hands -- in poison ivy. No idea where it came from. I was going to let it runs its course, but now a second crop has started springing up -- it's so bad I'm going to break down and go to the doctor this morning for some much needed medicine.
Yes, I'm miserable, but what bugs me most of all is that I have absolutely NO IDEA how I got it! After thinking on it, I've concluded it was on one of my long sleeve thermal underwear shirts, which I started wearing about a week before when the weather cooled down. But how did it get there? I didn't get it last year; I washed them before they went into winter storage; and even if I hadn't, I don't wear them doing outside work! I've been washing all my clothes to within an inch of their lives, but I still don't know if I'm getting rid of the problem...
