L-L-L…nope, can’t say it

Aside from, well, real emergencies, there’s probably nothing else that horrifies parents quite like the “L” word. No, no, not that “L” word. I’m talking about:
Lice
 
Fortunately, I’ve never had to deal with these ghastly creatures from hell (or from other kids’ hats and combs). But I’ve heard enough horror stories to know when I’ve got a relatable topic. For this series, I talked to several friends and consulted blogs and articles. I have only one word: YEEEECCCCHHHH.
In some cases, I read that parents would get rid of the pests, only to discover that they’ve returned with a vengeance. This is after disinfecting every household possession and shaving each family member’s head. I think I’d call FEMA, declare my home an emergency zone, and then move to the nearest hotel. Bedbugs can’t be as disgusting…right?

Anyway, hope you enjoy the series. Or – realistically — I hope it gives you a laugh and doesn’t make you relive the horror or retch your guts out. If it does, I apologize. Please don’t curse me with lice.

  1. Fought them for 4 months several years ago. Reached the point where everyone in the family had their heads shaved, twice, only to discover that a third party kept reintroducing them to us–which was why nothing I did seemed to work. When third party was forced to get rid of them, suddenly we weren’t fighting them any more.
