Tick in a Bellybutton (Photo) Just What I Needed !
Oh, baby, you have no idea how long I've been waiting for this. Not just a tick in a bellybutton, but, two of them. Not just any bellybutton, either, that's my bellybutton and I can do anything I want with it. Hah !
The timing could have been better, though. I just got back in town after spending a day in the hot sun, along with Doc. We went to a place most Americans call The Cave of the Virgins, to take photos.
You don't get to go in the caves. It's a sacred site, Okinawa War memorial and a shockingly, sad story.
I'll post that for you after I get all my research done and have as many facts as I can possibly gather.
So, back to the ticks. Doc dropped me off at my office. He noticed, before I did, the door was already open. The wife decided to clean the place. She was in there, tables turned up, swabbing the floor with whatever women swab floors with. Grr, I wanted to download photos and get developing. I dropped my camera gear off where it looked like it'd be safe and said "Hi, Sugar" or something like that.
Then, in order not to get roped into a conversation or work, I started doing what any respectable man would do. I made believe I was doing something important. I started looking at my bellybutton.
When you find a tick in your bellybutton, it's best not to tell your wife. Trust me, I know, somehow.
People even ask YAHOO WHAT TO DO when they panic over ticks in bellybuttons.
Don't panic. Here's what I did.
I decided I needed an iced coffee. That was my excuse to go across the street, get out in the sun again, and have a closer look at the tick I spotted. This way nobody in my immediate family would have to freak out and call an ambulance or have blood pressure going through the roof.
Outside in the bright sunlight I could see a lot better. Ah, the great outdoors. I hit the jackpot. There's two of them in there. Just little guys but, if I take real good care of them, they should grow up in just a few days. I need them to get bigger for my project I've been planning.
See, up there in Mad Mike's Reviews, I mentioned I want to do a Swiss Army Knife Review. And I even talked about using it to remove a tick from a bellybutton. We'll have step by step instructions and photos. This is the kinda stuff I love to do. The real deal.
Just, don't anybody mention what I'm working on around the wife, OK ?
She'll freak out and have me going to the emergency room or have me sleeping with the dogs!
