It’s spreading slowly. But it’s definitely spreading. I can honestly say, though (as I pat myself on the back) that I haven’t purposely itched the area… yet. I’ll admit another truth here, too, as much as I want to deny it: I have some kind of poison ivy or poison something! Worse yet, I haven’t been in the woods in months! So I’ve narrowed down the encounter to when I was playing volleyball. Someone there must’ve had it on their arm, got it on the ball, and transferred it to me during one of my Olympic-worthy digs. So if you see me with long sleeves in the coming days/week in the very beginning of a hot summer, now you know why. Don’t judge me! It’s because I have a layer of calamine lotion on 30% of my right arm, and under that… an itchy mess!
