Fiorella has discovered that the yard work along the driveway had consequences she should have expected but didn't--chigger bites. And they're all along her underwear lines, which makes life--uh--interesting.

Ever since her family moved to Texas when she was seven, Fio's been prime chiggerbait. As a child, she would end up with 30-some bites on her legs during the summer. We treated them with clear nail polish back then--Fio's legs glistened.

Her mother never had this problem, and Husband doesn't, but apparently there's something about sweet Fio the little blighters like. Fio figures she's the ice cream of the insect world.
