  1. Just looking at those insects give me the creeps. Yesterday some sugar ants crawled all over my feet (wearing sandals) and started to bite me. Then some started to crawl up my pant legs and bit me on the thighs. When I got home one crawled out of my shirt. That’s when I decided to jump into the shower.
