It really shocked me when my mother turned down my invitation to go to the movies because she is very paranoid about catching bed bugs. No matter what I said or did she firmly kept refusing and my daughter twisted the whole thing around to where she thinks her grandmother doesn’t want to go to the movies with us because of her. This has been a constant battle between the three generations of females that just can’t seem to communicate with one another without someone taking it the wrong way and/or getting their feelings hurt on some type of level, sigh…..
It is a well known fact that bed bugs are becoming a huge issue with tons of people everywhere, as well as head lice. The pest control companies are being kept crazy busy and people are flocking to find new ways to prevent the spread of these unwanted critters, but this can’t make us so paranoid that it interferes with your daily life and relationships that we cherish and are hard to come by these days.
Funny thing is that my mother and step-father are currently on their way to Florida for a couple of weeks visiting friends and relatives and enjoying all that the “Land of Sunshine” has to offer. They plan on staying at various motels/hotels on their way down and back up again, which are more likely to infect someone with numerous unwanted critters. Go figure!
