I got bit by some kind of bug Thursday night at bocci.
I felt it while sitting on the bench waiting my turn to throw. A sharp pinch.
It was on my upper left thigh. Inside. Next to the family jewels.
When I got home, I checked the bite out. I had a slight inflamation. It twitched a bit. No pain.
When I woke yesterday morning, it was a different story. The inflamation was the size of a golf ball. And there were 3 small bruises nearby that resembled and were the size of small worms.
By mid afternoon, the fire engine red swelling was about 6 inches by 4 inches. And thick. It was bulging out. And it hurt!
So I stayed in last night. It had to be bothering me for me to give up a Friday night on the town in Key West!
It is still swollen this morning, though a bit less. It hurts less. The 3 small bruises have been absorbed into the red swelling. I can see a needle from whatever bit me in the middle of the thing.
There were wasps around Thursday night. This is not a wasp bite, though. Nor is it a fire ant bite. I have had both.
Oh well, I will live! I am happy that what ever bit me did not move another quarter inch and chomp on my privates! That would really have been painful and a hell of a story to tell!
The only time I was out yesterday was to have lunch with Lisa. We talked about the final touches to her internet department store Via Key West which will be opening soon.
A quiet day. Of necessity.
Today will be another story. Healthy living can only go so far!
Enjoy your day!
