Here in the tropics we get to encounter a wide variety of insects or bugs whatever you want to call them. Last week a darling little creature landed on my finger and took a piss…. I think he got scared. Well the next morning there was a big blister about the size of a dime on my finger. It was bugging me, so I gently popped it and the liquid went all over the top of my hand. No big deal… I washed it off, but the next day…. my finger and the top of my hand and my thumb were all blistered, bright red and itched. While this was healing I woke up to another blister on my other hand. Another blister that kept growing until it was see through transparent. I was concerned so I showed it to our manager Diana and she said be real careful not to pop it and get it anywhere on you because it will spread. (Where was she last week?) jane and I did a little surgery in the bathroom and popped it without getting it on me, or her. Well it’s 2 weeks later and the first pee attack is still red and the skin is still falling off and it seems to be getting worse on the top of my hand. The second pee party is still bright red and the skin is still falling off. It does not help to have to get keys and money out of my pockets, because it doesn’t seem to heal real fast rubbing off the little blisters. Knowing how my luck with medical stuff goes, you could say
“I’m a Ree Pee t offender.
This charming insect has acidic urine and relieves itself on you as a defense mechanism. If you touch the resulting blisters, the acid spreads to wherever you touch next.
I suggest just ……….don’t “touch yourself there”. ….. You know where!
