Head Lice - It's True - page 9

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

    Speaking of lice,
    in college (the first time,1968) the guys were always freaked out about the draft. One guy was having to go before The Draft Board the following Monday, so on Saturday he decided to start taking hits of acid (LSD) He stayed up tripping until it was time to go for his appt. During the physical they discovered he had the crabs. That wasn't the reason he was rejected by the Draft Board, though. It was more that his brain processes were....um....compromised.
    But anyway, when he went back to his apt. he took a clean babyfood jar (art major), placed some of his pubic hairs in it, and several of the crabs (I seem to remember at least 3). He put the lid on the jar and showed one and all the "natural habitat" he'd made for them within the jar, which he kept in his parka pocket "because they're used to being in a warm place."

    I always wondered whatever happened to that guy...

    Did he wear long sleeve red T-shirts every day?

    See now, I'm sitting here picturing a sorta lice version of a flea circus. Though if lice can't jump, they may need to be willing to be launched from a tiny cannon.
