While I was out walking today, and looking for golf balls as is my habit of late, I began being stalked by a rather large bug. It looked kind of like a fly, but about an inch long. Buzz, buzz, buzz by my head and all around me! I thought I got rid of it, but then it was there again, buzzing, buzzing, buzzing! Several times I thought I got rid of it, but then it would appear again! Finally, I figured out he must just be sitting on my back, where I could not reach him.
What to do?? I was tempted to walk back home and have my husband help me, but I was afraid I would not go back out and continue my walk. So I tried rubbing my back against a tree. I thought that worked, but then I heard the now familiar buzz...
I was so ready to take my shirt off and be rid of that thing, but maybe not such a good idea!! Finally, I found a fellow walker and pleaded for her help. She was not too thrilled to kill that bug on my back, but thankfully, she did! I was so afraid that it was going to bite me.
I guess I must have disturbed a nest or something. I will keep clear of that area from now on!
I am happy to say, despite the bug, I had my longest walk. I logged 7.11 miles! Woohoo!!
Anyone have some tips on how to deter bugs from you while you walk????
