So, these are my new stressers while being in Alabama this summer. You may find that one has nothing to actually do with this state: The Zombie Apocalypse, rabies, chiggers, ticks, poisonous snakes and spiders, bees, poison ivy and oak, fire ants, and scorpions.
I am told the only thing I’ll probably actually come into contact with are chiggers. Or snakes if I take the trails at night.
In my attempts to not have nightmares about these things, I’ll focus on the new experiences I’ve had. Firstly, I had grits for the first time ever today. Turns out, it’s just cornmeal which I’ve definitely had before and hate. Secondly, I saw an armadillo, which was exciting till someone told me they carry leprosy.
I will also get to shoot a gun and go fishing for the first time. That’ll be fun… or horrible.
