Story Tale

So, imagine if you will...

We had a very heavy comforter and so I took off my pajama bottoms to sleep. Me being me I threw them on the floor. One morning I got up and put on my bottoms, and felt something inside my left pant leg. It was kind of fuzzy, so my mind told my mind that it was a piece of fuzz. It couldn't be anything else, right? So I stuck my arm down my leg and grabbed it. When I grabbed it, I knew it wasn't fuzz.

I threw it out onto the floor, simultaneously jumping and screaming REALLY loudly. A fuzzy caterpillar. Ah, so harmless, so I laughed hysterically and kept flapping my pant legs with my arms. M came in to be sure I wasn't dead, picked up the caterpillar, and brought him outside, likely to fry in the desert.

And you know what, I care only just a little if it fried. Because this is what it did to my leg in its self defense:


You can see how long the caterpillar was. I still have the marks on my leg even now.

Sweet dreams!

Ouch! How does a caterpillar do that!? Did it have spines or something?

Eeeeeewwwww! I know that vast majority of bugs are harmless, but stuff like that creeps me out so much...

Oh yeah....they're cute and fuzzy and some of 'em are not wanting to be messed with--EVER.

I'da freaked out just as much as you.
Cute over there....not cute crawlin' on me uninvited!

Antibacterial wash, antiseptic cream and watch so it's not spreading.

*laughing* I'm suchhhhhhhh a mom sometimes.

How did it leave those marks? That's awful! I'd still be screaming!

Wow. That's pretty crazy. I've never had a caterpillar do that to me before, but I've never found one in my pants before either...
