This morning I was just sitting in my office this morning pondering the introduction to my review paper. I scratched my head, and found a little bug under my fingernail. I though Huh, that's weird. Kinda gross. Wonder how I got a bug on my head. So, being the good biologist that I am, I stuck it to a piece of tape. I looked at it a little more, noticed it didn't have wings, and thought, Uh oh... What do lice look like?
After a Google image search, I'm about 99% sure I have head lice. Likely source: movie theater. We saw WALL-E on Sunday.
So, I'm back at home with a shower cap on my head. Not exactly what I'd planned for the day. My bike helmet is in the freezer and I have to wait for Jon to come home with more quarters so we can wash all of our linens.
I did get to talk to Herb for about 10 minutes today, but most of our conversation was about head lice.
