I started to think back to what I might have done to get it. Was it just a dry patch of skin? No, I don't think so. What about a crazy sunburn spot? No, not that either. One thing I knew for sure, it wasn't from Ben... And I WAS NOT necking with some other guy either... Gross!
Then where did this come from?!
I made sure to wear a high neck tee so no one would be wondering where I got a hickey while my husband was out of town.
Now, this is where the story gets funky. The next morning I woke up with another one! Seriously! Was it some kind of fungus? I googled it... no, that didn't sound right. Well, maybe I had the plague and I was dying! No, the pictures I found on the net looked nothing like the mysterious hickeys on my neck.
I was frustrated, confused, and I was running out of cute tees to wear. So I decided I was going to execute a sting operation in the middle of the night and see where these where coming from.
It was silent as I lay in bed. Then I felt something on my neck. Oh, freak! What was it!?
The culprit... my mysterious necking buddy was none other than a... Mosquito! That's right, the hickeys were actually mosquito bites. It was like my own private version of Twilight. Little vampires visiting me at night. Makes me feel a little less lonely... well, almost.
