I am the Lady MacBeth of lice.
Seriously, I always think I have lice and I never do.
In December my head was itching like crazy and I was convinced I was infested, but no. It was (wait for it) glitter.
I did not have lice. I had glitter.
GLITTER. It was far more glamorous than I could have imagined. Also itchier. One should be more careful when one is taking down sparkly decorations.
One time – ONE TIME – months ago one of children actually had lice. Ever since then I have had delusions of parasites.
About once every other week I comb through my hair with the little stabby comb and nothing is ever in there. I’m sure the damage I am doing to my scalp is what is causing the itching. Now that I am thinking it out it is probably just healing from the last time I scraped the crap out of my poor head.
Is this something that happens to other people?
You don’t really have to answer that.
