Hope you get a tick out of this one...

Sometimes when you stand in line at Target you have many last minute items to pick from: Gum, smut mags, Toblerone chocolates, hairbands, batteries, and even wood ticks. Yes, wood ticks.
Standing in line at Target today a lady said, "Excuse me, could you look at something? I think i have a tick on my neck."
So she proceeds to life up her hair, and low and behold is a wood tick planted firmly in her neck.
Poor lady looked like she was going to die. So I said, No worries and I asked the checkout gal for a paper towel and then I removed the tick from the lady's neck.
She was grateful and began blubbering about how she hates ticks and she is even afraid to remove them from her dog... I was more impressed that she deemed me worthy of tick inspection\removal.

I live for moments like these, they sure do make life interesting.

When you're from the country, you're not that scared of such things. Or you know how to overcome the creepies to become super woman if needed. Way to go you lip gloss wearin' Tickwoman - go now and fight the evil insects with a bat of those eyelashes and a flip of your hair!
I must say you are very approachable and give off that "I'll help you with anything" vibe. And that's a compliment.

Simply repulsive. . . but, in times of trouble--we all can amaze ourselves. I picked little lice buggers out of a girl's eyelashes a way long time ago when I worked at a crises/treatment center. I would sit there and wait for them to crawl out from under her eyelids and snatch them with my fingernails (yeah, I actually had fingernails back then). I felt so bad for her! I do not know where the strength to do it came from--but at least she didn't have to have her eyelashes plucked at the doctor's office! You rock!!

You must have been on a major do-gooder's high after that totally random act of kindness.....
