IT'S ALL IN MY HEAD



You know those outrageous headlines on the Internet…
That no matter how much time you don’t have…
You're curious enough to open the link anyway?
Yesterday…
I saw this headline:
GROSS THING LIVING INSIDE MAN’S HEAD.
Lord!
Ever since I was a kid and heard of earwigs...
I’ve been afraid of one crawling in my ear…
Not that I know where I and an earwig would be together...
But recently, I've been crazed...
Thinking something’s crawled in my head.
Why?
Besides the gigunda sized bugs here in Akumal...
There's also the tiniest, eensy weeniest, little ants here.
And they’re everywhere!
In my kitchen…
In my bathroom…
On my computer…
Even on me!
The other night in bed...
My ear itched...
And before drifting off to my usual deep sleep…
I imagined one tiny pest had crawled in my ear.
After a restless night…
I woke up with an even itchier ear, tormented...
Had a bug crawled in there? Was it still in there?
Since then…
I've been spotted…
With a hydrogen peroxide dipped Q-Tip …
Hanging out of my ear.
(lest you think I’m loco, my doc in the States recommended this)
So?
Did I check that video to see what was in the man’s head?
Hell no!
I didn't need a visual…
I’d already conjured several in my head.
So?
Are you afraid of earwigs?
Ever think something's crawled in your ear?
Ever admit to a crazy scenario?

Always Em-Musing

Bugs try to fly in my ears when I'm mowing the lawn. And people wonder why I want Astro Turf...

Ewwwww!! I'm not afraid of earwigs, but sometimes I do wonder if any creepy bugs have crawled on me in the night. Best not to think about it!

My husband once read this story about a man who had licked an envelope when he was sending a letter and some days later his tongue started swelling. He thought it was a food allergy or something. If only! When he had licked the envelope, he licked cockroach eggs and there were cockroaches growing in his tongue. How scary is that??? Makes you want to use water to seal those envelopes now!

I have a real bug phobia/dislike so this completely grosses me out.

Laura's story is nightmare worthy for me!

Ugh I totally hate earwigs and was told the same thing about them. :/

Earwigs are really nasty. I have an honest dislike for them.
