A lesson well learned is not soon forgotten. Hope you are not the allergic type.

My introduction to Houston.

A Damn-Yankee, part of the 1981 Black Tag migration (the black Michigan license plates of those years, although I was from Ohio) I arrived at my host/contact's place after driving all day, after sleeping in my Pinto Wagon in Texarkana the night before. Except to void the bladder, I don't think I'd set foot on Texas soil yet. So, we arrived - my friend, his shackup, and me, all in that Pinto...and it being a BEAUTIFUL November day, I sat under a tree in their front yard to read the classifieds out of the Houston Chronicle.

Nobody told me about fire ants - which are not in Ohio, Western New York or New Jersey. All the places I previously called Home.

Those MF'ers got up my leg, my inner thigh, into my skivvies. Yeah...ants in the pants. Not funny.

Not forgotten, either. That was a fast and immediate lesson that life in the Southland was not all mint juleps and fine warm weather.

But will the wife let you back in the house after being skunked?
