Dork-o-Rama: The Random Thoughts of a Total Goofball

Embracing the Dork Side....Because Life is Too Short to Take Yourself Too Seriously

And now for something completely different...

... a not-so-pleasant tale from hula class.

There I was, stretching before class, marveling at how stretchy I was, feeling a little zen-like, getting my mind in touch with my body and into a dance-y place... when I noticed a bug atop my sock*.

I swiped at it, thinking it would just fly away.

Instead, I ended up with a smear of blood on my sock.

At first, I thought it was bug guts... and then I realized...

BLLEEEAGH! It was MY blood! It was feeding on me! (Don't know what it was. Didn't look at all like a mosquito, which is my most common predator...)

And now, that mofo's bite itches like a sonofabitch.

Fucking fucker.


*yeah, we're supposed to dance barefoot... but the floor on which we dance -- in an elementary school auditorium/multi-purpose room -- is filthy, freezing, and my feet stick to it. hence, the sockage.

I haven't the foggiest what it could be... but it seemed to have a foot fetish...
Death to the foot fetish bugs!

That's pretty yucky.

I hope you are giving your poor little foot lots of love. It's probably still scared.

Oh dear. I scratched my ankle apart from what I think was a bug bite. I ended up on antibiotics for it a few weeks ago. Be safe, dearest. Who knew hula could be so dangerous?! :)

I've tried to come up with something that's any combination of witty, pithy, insightful or profound for this post, but the only thing that keeps springing to mind is:

ewww.

Christ. *wrinkling nose*

That's just plain unfortunate. I loathe bugs.

By this time I would be convinced I had contracted Viral Menengitis, so you're handling this quite well.

Keep shacking that booty, Terry

Is Jon asking you to shack up? Heh!

The condition of the floor has me really bothered. Do you burn the socks when you are done?
