Is Something Crawling on Me?




Will it ever stop? After I kicked in their nest, they kept coming. After I trampled their marching hoards, still they kept on, hefting bits of leaf and crumb. They slalom through the hairs on my arm, searching for a way in.

  2. So intriguing and so well done, Kymm. I realize this is about ants (or realized it at the end) but could also take the description to a more global level, couldn't we? (love the use of word "slalom")

  5. I don't mine bugs, but once they get on me or in my space-eek! No thank you. That last line just made me shake a little- just in case there was one marching along my skin.

  7. In Georgia you would definitely react to an ant. We have fire ants and they bite.
