Okay, "possibly", I said. I don't know what the probabilities are - certainly greater than developing 'special powers'. Yes, unlikely, but...
Spider bite- that's what I'm talking about. I believe I got bit -two bites- night before last.
Unlike a mosquito, there wasn't a defined bite hole - you know, like where they stick the, um- 'proboscis' , organic hypo - No, this was just two mosquito bite sized areas that were not raised lumps, but had a sort of itchiness to them. They're not mosquito bites. They don't itch now, but there's something going on. I'm 'aware' of them.
Now, a full 24hrs later twin heads have raised, just red points, and there is a strange achy-ness in the armpit joint above, the elbow joint below. Sort of feels like the ligaments; mild, but there when there shouldn't be anything 'there'.
Anyway, think I'm gonna go for a hike. I can feel the coffee coursing all through me, except for that area of my upper arm, and the two nearby joints ( partially).
Geesus, will I be accelerating the venom through me to some important part, paralylising it, and die?
So be it. I can't stand being cooped up right now. Sky is still reddish and smoke polluted from the fires, but I'm going.
Spiders... I like spiders, but I think one got me. I've probably killed a thousand. I suck them in the vacuum, mostly ( though I have stomped black widows).
The larger I do scoop with a glass and throw outside, but I know sometimes it's easier and/or just too late - *shhlooopt!* - there goes another one.
