Day 4 – Continued

Anyone know anything about BED BUGS? It would appear that the Quality Inn found my mention of their breakfast offending and slipped some of these critters in my rack. I have a dozen bites between my ankles and waist. It could be chiggers but I was never off gravel or pavement while in Arkansas.

Might there be runes I can write or an incantation I can recite that will give me some relief?

    I stayed in one of the nicest hotels in Zagreb last fall and itched my way all 27 hours back to the states the next day, so I feel your pain. I know of no voodoo that will provide you with your desired relief besides time and patience, both of which we both lack.

      Zagreb? Is that a real place? Out of country you can expect to find woolly boogers and such in your bed, especially depending on who you share it with.

    Don’t know about bed bugs, but for chiggers here’s a way to get rid of them…

    Take some clear fingernail polish and put it on the area that’s red. What it does is seals up the area that the bug is in, thus depriving it of oxygen. Sure the bugs are dug in to your skin but they’ve got to breathe…

    You better wash your clothes in HOT water. If they get into your house about the only way to get rid of them is to have a professional come in and treat. I hate to sound like an alarmist but I’ve run across a couple of articles about how they are making a come back in hotels.
