That's a picture I took last night of Dr. Mr. Moon as he was operating on the not-a-tick on my leg. He determined that it was really, possibly a thorn and spent about half an hour with the headlight, needle, tweezers, and a magnifying glass trying to remove it but he could not so he put some Neosporin and a band-aid on it and called it done. That was fine with me. It was a bit uncomfortable, having him dig around in the meat of my leg but it wasn't really that bad. Plus, I was watching Ancient Aliens over his shoulder the entire time which was a good distraction.
I love that show so much. Of course, one of the reasons is the man you see above. His name is Giorgio A. Tsoukalos and the reason I know this is not because of the show where I never pay attention to stuff like actual facts (and no one else does either) but because if you Google ancient aliens, guy with...
it'll go ahead and complete your phrase for you, the way Google so thoughtfully does with the word "hair" and then it'll take you someplace where you can find out that his name is actually, yes, Giorgio A. Tsoukalos.
I find this guy fascinating and hysterical. It would appear that other people people do too. There are a lot of memes out there with his face on them. That one above is one of my favorites because ANCIENT ALIENS AND THE MAYANS GET ME SO FUCKING HIGH TOO!
You think I'm joking here but if you really know me, you realize I'm actually pretty darn serious and look- we possibly-atheist folks need some loony magic in our lives just like the religious people do and HOW DID THEY BUILD THAT SHIT?
Ancient Aliens, y'all.
Civilization is going to hell in a handbasket.
And I'm going there too.
With something in my leg. Which doesn't seem to hurt at all. What could it be? Why can't we get it out? What strange, small black object has lodged itself into the very fiber of my limb?
Better than a tick.
