Sometimes, my day just does not go as planned.

I felt the sting and brushed my arm.

Then I looked down….scorpion

Turns out, when you get stung by a scorpion, your arm stings, then burns, the goes into this weird pins and needles things, right before it gets heavy, then goes numb.

Oddly enough, where you were stung does NOT get red and puffy like a regular bite or sting. No, instead it looks like your skin is puckering and blistering under the surface.

Also important to note: twitchy eyeballs, tongue spasms, and nausea.

On the upswing, after a scorpion sting, you get really REALLY good drugs.

How’s your day going?

  6. Of COURSE I did. It's not like I could drive anywhere or anything. Besides, the internet is much more fun when you're on drugs.

  11. AHHH! I HATE those things my parents house is crawling with them. My brother caught 30+ in a bucket & one with babies all over its back. Anyways I've been stung twice, once when I was 5 & then 17 & both times I have to go to the ER cuz I get all spazed out & my eyeballs did the same thing felt like they were going back & forth & couldn't focus on things, although the ER docs couldn't see that. They told me it's the same effect people get on Speed? Whatever. Also all drinks tasted like tonic water for like 3 days afterwards.

    The other day I was bathing my kids at my parents & apparently they were bathing with a scorpian & it was floating above Kimber's foot & the SAME DAY Colter was playing & saying "Crab, crab..." & I was like what is he talking about...OH CRAP! Sure enough he was touching a LIVE scorpian!

    Bet you can't wait to get home! :) Geeezz could my post be any longer?
