So Saturday, I'm out feeding the cows grapefruit. (Yes, the cows on the ranch like grapefruit, though that is a different story.) And parts of the (rather extensive) lawn have not been mowed in ages. Like the part I was collecting the grapefruits from. And I wander into what must have been a huge fire ant nest because the grass is so tall I didn't see it. So my feet are now covered in probably two dozen ant bites. And I'm not sure what is worse about fire ant bites. The initial burning, stabbing pain of the bites, the fact that the bites swell up like really ripe pimples (sorry, it's really gross, I know), or the fact that once the bites break open, they itch forever. I am at the itching stage right now, and it feels like each individual bite has its own itch, and I just want to SCRATCH. SO BADLY. But that will just make them scar worse than they already will. (These are teeny, tiny bites, but they always seem to scar, at least on me. My feet already have a ton of little white circles on them.)
