Sadly, we only have one more night to travel through Egypt. This is our last night for SBA and we have been having a great time. I hope to have more pictures tomorrow night. It is taking me a while because we get home so late from SBA, and Mattie May has to have a bath afterward. Furry animals and sweating kiddos make for some really funky smells! I just wanted to tell a funny on Mattie May.
It was dusky dark on our way home last night, but I could see something on Mattie May's forehead when I looked in the rear view mirror. I asked her "Mattie May, what is that on your head? Did you get mud on it when you were making bricks?"
MM - "I don't know, maybe."
And that was the end, I thought.
Just seconds later she started screaming "Lolo! There is a bee in here! Get it out! Get it out!"
I couldn't see it or hear it and where I was, I certainly couldn't pull over to check her out. I told her to put her blanket over her head and we would stop just as soon as I could.
" But Lolo, don't you hear it?! I can still hear it!" She had her blanket on her head like I told her.
When we reached the next stop light, I turned to check on her. She was still covered up and seemed to be calm. When I turned back around, I saw the "bee" on my windshield. It was a huge, Texas size mosquito! I told Mattie May that it was OK, that it was just a mosquito and she could take the blanket off her head. In this short time, I did manage to rid my car of this gigantic pest.
We got home and I got her in the bath tub. I started getting her hair wet to wash it and that is when I saw the bumps. What I thought was mud on her head was the cotton pickin' mosquito, and he had evidently found she was a delicious meal! I didn't want her to freak out over the bumps so I didn't take any pictures but they where really big!
I guess next time I see something on her head, I'll check it out a little better!
