I thought my skirt was on fire! I was on target – even early – this morning with a lot of energy and looking forward to church….until I put on my skirt. And then — I thought my skirt must have been on fire because my body sure was! Owwww! Owww! Owwww!
The Fire Ant Dance! I charged out the back door and well ummm – did the only thing that made sense at the time – I umm - de- skirted on the back porch. (It’s a good thing we live in the country!!!) I looked down at my skirt and it was covered in FIRE ANTS! My, oh my! I tried to fling off the little critters, but they held on tightly – so I had to pick them off one by one…which took a while.
Finally I thought I had them all, but decided it would be wise not to wear that skirt as I didn’t want to make a scene in church if I missed one or two of them…LOL!
It turns out that ants are attracted to 100% cotton – which my skirt lining was made of. I’m just really glad not to have done the “Fire Ant Dance” in church — which we finally got to attend.
The end — at least it was the end to those ants. Now I need to find their cousins….
