Stung by a Scorpion!

Can I whine?

Yesterday morning I got clobbered by a scorpion. Stupid move on my part, was raking out flower beds wearing flip flops instead of shoes.

Got me good, at least 3 stings on the side of my foot. Screamed so loud Iím sure the neighbors thought I was being attacked or something.

The pain was excruciating the entire day and shock waves ran up to my knee. Today the pain is a little better but feels like my ankle is being crushed in a vice. With spikes.

The joys of living in the southwest! Oh and I would strongly recommend any adult beverage and unlimited ice cream to take the edge off if anyone finds themselves ever in the same predicament.
