Oh, I had a top on too.
The rain came and went twice while we were at the party. Apparently the weather upset the flies who began biting. Unfortunately, the big black flies were in attendance too, not just the common house fly. I was bitten once on my right ankle and twice on my left leg. I spent the rest of the time with my feet up on the bench of the picnic table to avoid more bites.
From past experience, I know the bites will leave a mark much, much longer than a mosquito bite. I vowed not to scratch them and was fine until we came home on Sunday.

I'm sure the doctor meant to order complete bedrest with only a book, a phone and a TV remote to keep me company, but you know the time restraints the doctors are under because of the insurance companies. The doctor left the room before giving me those orders.
