So, I am seeing this guy who, so far, has been a total sweet heart. Last week I open up an e-mail from him before I started my VERY early work shift that read that he has gotten "bug bites" the last 2 times we were together, and that he thinks my hair must have bed bugs in them. WTF?! He even attaches this link in his very politely put e-mail:http://www.dreadheadhq.com/make_dreadlocks_tipstricks_bugs.php
I immediately reply telling him that I have no bites and that I know I do not have bed bugs, as I am highly allergic to them, and even ask all of my house mates if they have bites and they do not. More e-mails and phone calls later go on for a few days and he jumps from bed bugs to scabies. Another insect I do not have, or have been exposed to. This dude has been to Big Sur hiking by the way, a fact I didn't know at the time. He goes to the free clinic and they cannot tell if it is scabies or a rash. He then tells me we should avoid skin to skin contact, and I am thinking "yeah buddy, you got it!", but I am trying to remain calm since he is being so nice about the whole thing.
The finale of the story comes like a day later when he e-mails to tell me he has poison oak! Fucking poison oak from fucking hiking around in the brush!!!! I want to rip out his brains at this point. I had been itching imaginary scratches for like a week thinking "what if I did give him something", and freaking out that my dreads might be infested, not knowing he went hiking on his trip. I guess the revenge is that he is covered in some pretty bad rashes from the oak all over his body. I am mostly pissed that the first thing his sheltered mind thought of is that it must have been my dreads that gave him bugs! I am still trying to remain calm.
Here are some pics for good measure....( Collapse )
