Advertisement I got bit by a tick. I didn't know it until now. But I think it was from yesterday. Yesterday I went to my local stream/pond that was opened up. Found a huge 3foot long snapping turtle(accidentally stepped on it--- I didn't even notice it there. when I felt something under me move there it was! It was just wading away. It was 3foot long. But by god I was so scared. One wrong move and I could have been bit!) Anywho back to the main story. Found some stuff yatta yatta yatta. Started feeling tiredish/sleepy. I rarely feel like that when Iam out in nature. I went home. Did what I had to do(eat, shower,etc). Though I wasn't really hungry(oddly). Slept early(odd for me). Woke up. Just cut the grass. I take a shower. Iam scrubbing my head vigorously with shampoo(I didn't even feel the tick was there or knew it! yikes!) I feel a lump on my head. I have short hair. so that's weird. liking to self groom myself alot I try pulling it off. It felt like a little rock. It wouldnt come off. So I then squeezed it hard and tugged. I felt a "pop" and liquid comming out. Then I saw the tick in my hand. It was still alive but not active. it was like almost dying. Extremely mad(mind you i like parasitic lifeforms--- just not on me or my pets) I took a cup that was in the shower. I put the water nozzle really boiling hot. Fill the cup up. Plop the lil b*strd in there and then five mins later its still alive. So I refill the cup with more boiling hot water. Bout then it just died. So I took one of the test tubes(I got 3 from a petstore. Though they're too small to use for the ant thing) Filled it up with hydrogen peroxide put the cap on and shook it for a minute or two to kill any bacteria(precaution). Then I emptied it and filled it again with rubbing alcohol and took it downstairs(I shook it while taking it downstairs) and put the little vermin in there and it turns bloody red and has a white thorax thingy. Ill find a picture of it. Here's the link for the picture and the picture of the tick(link to the picture is where I found the picture obviously--- I did not make or produce this picture): http://static.howstuffworks.com/gif/adam/images/en/deer-and-dog-amp160tick-picture.jpg I wonder if ill get sick from it.
