The Naked Truth

Saturday I continued to work on our bedroom
redo project. 

At the end of the day I stripped
off my yukky work clothes
and slipped into a warm bath.

Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!
I looked into the bath-water
"and what to my wandering eyes
did appear?"
Little, stinging ants;
some floating about,
others stuck to "my parts"
stinging me!!!

(*photo not available*)
I made one gigantic, naked leap
from tub to bath mat,
my pride seriously damaged.


Where did those darn ants come from???
Of course they've now been washed
down the drain,
but will they return?

I think I'm gonna need some serious
psychological help
and a refill of Benedryl spray.
'Nuff said.

Hate ants! Their bites almost sting!

Just Stuff From a Boomer said...

Oh. My. Goodness. The nerve of the little buggers. I cannot imagine those stinging bites on a girl's privates. That's just wrong.

Biting ants - that is purely mean. Especially when your mind is all set for that great bath after so much work.

My Mind's Eye said...

Oh my gosh....that is just wrong on all levels...working all day have aching muscles only to encounter creepy crawlies in the tub.
Bless your heart.

You poor thingie! I'll always check my tub from now on!

Kimmy said...

Oh no!!! I have never been stunk by ants before but I've heard the sting it can give :o( I'm sorry! Yeah, especially when you were ready to be relaxed!

Hope it feels better soon!!!

Oh my gosh! Wonder how in the WORLD that happened!

Chatty Crone said...

I KNOW that hurts - my daughter is allergic to them - they can do some serious damage - but a psychologist? You have me stumped.

Let me know what you find out! We have ants in both bathrooms. I can't figure out where they're coming from or why they're there and not in the kitchen.

yaya said...

We knew you were sweet, but geez....

Jeanie said...

Yikes! That would keep me out of the tub for a while.....and I love my baths.
I'm sure a video of your exit would be fun to see.

Cheri said...

OUCH...I would have screamed. Were they those dang fire ants? This was the first year in 6 years that I did not get attacked by them on my feet.

karen said...

Ants are the worst. Because even though they're tiny, there's SO MANY of them at once! Sneaky bastards...

Sush said...

Yep time to call Terminex or the pest controler of your choice! We had the worst time getting rid of ants. They are persistent.

That was a scene straight out of a B-movie horror film! You're going to need therapy now for sure. I hate ants!

Robin said...

OH MY GOODNESS!! That really STINKS! Glad those little suckers are down the drain now!
