the beautiful and talented alisa has been plagued by a recurring rash for nearly a year. the poor dear. it's pretty bad. she went to a specialist. yeah, you've got a rash. here's some stuff to make it not itch. and uh hope it'll go away on its own. it didn't. it spread to the kids. it kinda looks like insect bites. which go away. but then you get the mystery bumps. that show up for no apparent reason. itch like hell. then slowly go away. damn. one pediatrician said it doesn't look like scabies. another said it might be. so she treated b. and he responded so well, that everyone else was like me too! me too! so we all got prescriptions. during b's spring break. so he and alisa went skiing for a week. they came back on wednesday. and on thursday night we all got naked and spread miticide all over everywhere. alisa washed everything in the house that anyone touched in the past three days. stuff that didn't get washed went in garbage bags for the next three days. that was a whole lotta work. but hopefully we have attacked the disease. instead of just the symptoms.
