Leeeeeech

Probably the most disgusting thing that's happened so far happened on Saturday morning. It was early morning, and still pretty damp out - and walking through ferns and such, I eventually noticed some dirt on my sock. No, wait, it was a worm. Then again... well, on closer inspection, it turned out to be a kind of leech I've never seen before. It was fairly small, maybe 2-3cm, black, and about as big around as thin spaghetti (not quite capellini). I picked it out of my sock, and, well, out of my leg. It left behind a small red mark. Now, today's Monday, and that small red spot is now about as big around as a five cent piece, and growing. Yuck. I assume it's just irritated skin, but if it's any worse on Wednesday, I suppose I'd better have it looked at. Yecccch.
