I was disturbed by this news story yesterday.
I've seen the random-collection-of-facts e-mail about how we swallow about 7 spiders a year while we sleep. I'm thinking about getting some kind of special mask to wear at night so that won't happen to me.
But now I have to worry about them setting up residence in my ears?! This is unreasonable. I guess it's a good thing I already have earplugs (due to Butter's early morning and middle of the night hissy fits). But I haven't had to wear them much lately (except when the obnoxious frat boy neighbors get out of hand). Maybe I'll start wearing them every night as a preventative measure.
Somebody get me a plastic bubble already.
In other Arachnid related news, I went to get my hair did on Saturday and the radio was on. This song started playing. Apparently anything goes in country music. Never would I have thought that it would be socially acceptable to write a song about wanting to check someone for ticks, but I was wrong. And in case you can't understand what he's saying, here are the lyrics. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. This is a new low.
