Okay ...I admit it ...I am obsessing a bit ...okay ...a fair amount ...more than I want to. Heck, I don't want to obsess at all but is it even possible? Well sure it is possible. But is it likely? I mean seriously ...WHAT are the odds that it would happen THREE times? I am going to ignore it. I am. But I have to vent. I am not going to the ER. I am not. I don't even have time to do that. So I will not. No ...instead I will obsessively check it. Because we all know that obsessively checking will make it not so. Right? Of course the other two times I didn't go right away either. But this time I guess I just feel like ...seriously ...how likely is it that I could have been bitten by a bat ...again?
This wasn't even on my radar - no pun intended. I am talking about bats and bat bites. I am used to them always flying around here at dusk and so I don't even think about them and I garden until about that time or a bit later. Tonight I stayed out a longer because I was trying to finish a project. I really haven't even thought about bats in a long time. But when I came in to get washed up tonight, I noticed the two little perfectly symmetrical puncture marks and and then a little scratch a few inches from that. I wasn't gardening in anything sharp or in anything. I hung a plant off a very full tree and I planted flowers near other taller plants. I think I leaned over a full vine plant but I didn't touch it. And I never noticed anything fluttering near me.
I had the first rabies series in October, 1999 and with the second bat bite I got booster vaccines in July, 2014. I wrote posts about it all in 2014. So, I am not going to rehash that all over again. I am going to sign off now, and look at the puncture holes with the magnifying glass. Maybe I will take a picture again. But I am not going to obsess. Just saying. ;)
Why do these darn punctures have to be so perfectly symmetrical ...like fangs?
That was a rhetorical question.
Besides ...since I had the rabies series and then boosters the second time, in 2014 ...I would think I am covered ...like bat proof or something. Yeah ...I'm going with that. Bat proof.
