I still can't explain the bites on my legs, which our lovely Orkin man Ray thinks might be an allergic reaction to something. He sagely suggested I wash all of our sheets, which were already off the bed and in the wash.
However, it is an amazing thing to experience a complete low, followed soon after by a complete high.
- Ray had us sign the paperwork downstairs, slapped on his blue rubber gloves and said in his New York accent twinged with years of Prince William County: "I'm just gonna be honest with you. Having bedbugs will break you mentally, physically, emotionally and financially. It'll be like a murder scene up there."
- Although my breath caught in my throat every time he picked up a piece of something and inspected it carefully, Ray checked every inch of our bed and the floor around it and found nothing. Then he did a termite check and attic check and found nothing.
