My skin's still crawling

Ewe. Ewe. Ewe.

I've got the creepie crawlies. The heebie jeebies. And this time? It's not because of a cricket.

I was all curled up in my recliner, staring at the TV, because that's what I do from 8 until 9 on Thursday nights when Grey's Anatomy is on. I stare at the TV.

But all of a sudden, the big toe on my right foot felt funny. Kind of ticklish. I glanced down, and saw a dark spot. And it was MOVING!

I flung my foot. The spot left but I immediately jumped up to turn on the lights in the living room.

And there it was.

An earwig.

Yes, an earwig was crawling up my foot.


Needless to say, I grabbed some tissue and employed the scoop and flush method. But I still have that sensation that my skin is crawling. Because earwigs? They're almost as nasty as crickets.

Click on the link in the post, it'll take you to the Wikipedia entry on earwigs. They're nasty. And they have pinchers on their butt. Ugh.

Could be worse, you could take a drink of water through a straw and wind up with an earwig in your MOUTH!
