I took my bucket bath. I grabbed my Peace Corps issued hot pink towel and patted my face dry. Or I tried to. One pat and it hurt like hell. I quickly swatted at my face to get the ant or thorn or what ever the hell it is away from me, but nothing was there. The space between my eyebrows (called a glabella…seriously, look it up) was tingling and in pain.
I searched my towel and found a damn baby scorpion chilling on my Peace Corps issued hot pink quick dry towel. The bastard stung my glabella. What the hell? It is my towel! Not his jerk, baby home! I shook him off and drowned him in my filthy squat toilet. Take that you jerk.
I called PC medical to make sure I wasn’t going to die, I’m not. I just had to clean the area, take a pill or two and relax. The area is still red (though less so than it was 30 minutes ago) and it isn’t swelling. The pain/tingling (more tingly than painful) has also begun to recede. My glabella and I are going to be fine and now I can add “being stung by a scorpion” to my ‘happened to me’ list.
I’m still mad though…. that jerk…
