Head Lice - It's True - page 7

Tuesday morning I was brought a bug in a zip-lock bag. The bug had been just removed from a head. It was a, robust, adult head louse - judging by it's size. It appeared to be very agitated as it was... Read More

    It was for science!! If it makes you feel any better I did play an endless loop of John Denver music to ease its passage into louse eternal paradise.
    I think that is called Torture!

    OldDude in his drop-tailed, red flannel longjohns. A picture forever burned in my imagination's retina.
    ...heh, heh, heh...not too bad, actually.

    But then I hear the echo of the old-timer's 'rule' about when to change out of your longjohns in the spring.....

    "Stick to your longjohns until your longjohns stick to you"

    and I go, like, Eeeeeeuuuuuwwwwwwwww.

    Yes, 9 glasses of that would be sufficient. The little bloodsuckers would be drowned from the inside out.

    Good thing I don't have lice. 9 glasses, Red State?
    This is IPA, not Bud Light.

    Goodness, I'm sitting in my sweet little clinic at my precious little Christian private school and come across this wonderful thread about head lice and think, "oh, good! This is just what I need after so many cases of lice this week." Then suddenly there's cooter jewelry and vajazzling and pubic lice giving me the thumbs up and before I can clean up the lemonade that's squirted out my nose, I'm closing the window so I don't get caught reading this thread at work!

    Good grief, you people are gonna get me fired quicker than I can even do it myself!

    Note to self: read the cooter jewelry thread only on my phone.

    I'm not a school nurse either, but this seems to be where to cool kids hang out!

    Nurses with a sense of humor...whoda thunk it?? [emoji41]

    I wonder if their is a way to drown from 'the outside-in'?

    And to keep this within the subject matter of the title ......I am having trouble picturing head lice 'standing' around holding little cocktail glasses of the above concoction, drinking glass after glass (nine, to be exact), all th while accidentally inhaling the...whatever that stuff is in the photo of the glass, and therefore, in fact. 'drown' themselves, or at least their sorrows.

    I mean, really, when you think about it, it must be a miserable life being a louse.

    Q. What did you do Friday night?

    A. Oh, I had a scintillating and educational discussion online with a bunch of professionals/lunatics, on the subject of head-lice and 'public' lice.

    Q. What did you learn?

    A. That if I laugh a lot, for an hour or two, my stomach gets sore, and the soreness is a reminder of my evening of laughter!

    She really knows how to condense something into reality. Nice, very nice. John Denver would use you for writing his lyrics if he was still here.
