You know how when people talk about lice in the emergency department everyone starts itching?
The entire itching thing just evolved to a whole new level for me.
Usually I leave my backpack under the desk and I have books, medical equipment, some electronics, snacks and drinks inside.
Usually snacks include powerbars, dried fruit, almonds, and my homemade trail mix (cashews, dried cranberries, and raisins).
Well I was sitting at my desk typing up a note and I reached into my bag to grab a handful of trail mix, as I went to put some into my mouth, I noticed ants crawling all over my fingers.
I looked down and there were several hundred ants all over my backpack and in the trail mix bag.
Then I look around the floor and they’re crawling up my leg.
And they’re crawling up the bottom of the desk.
Every time there’s an itch, there’s a little ant crawling on my skin.
I’m still itching.
And I need a new back pack.
And I’m not going to be eating trail mix for a damn long time.
