This bug crawled onto my bed …. it was very flat and small
Tried to crush it between my fingers but couldn’t
Tried to crush it with paper but that didn’t work either
Used a sharp edge to crush it I hurt it but it didn’t die so I burned it

Dear trini,
Do you have a dog or a cat that goes outside and then jumps on the bed to sleep?  This is a Tick and you might want to check your pet, if you have one, to make sure these resilient blood suckers have not taken up residence on your pet’s coat.  Ticks are also vectors of diseases like Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme Disease, and their potential threat should be taken seriously.  Since we will be away from the office in early June, we have postdated your submission to go live at that time.
