My New Perfume – Deep Woods Off


It started a few weeks ago…my husband got a tick. Luckily for me, he was able to get it off himself and I didn’t have to see it. I wasn’t so lucky the next time because it was right on his back.

As I looked at that thing ferociously attached to his skin I could feel my heart pound like you wouldn’t believe. The buggers have eight legs! Eight legs in my mind = a spider and I am deathly afraid of spiders, especially the big ones. I felt my whole body start shaking, but I knew I had to get that thing off my hubby.

I grabbed the tweezers and followed tick removal instructions and I had to stop a few times to compose myself. Every time that thing moved I wanted to jump a mile back. I finally got the sucker off.

My husband has been walking in the woods recently, so I was sure it was just him picking them up from there.

A few days later, my husband wakes my son up and he has a tick right on his head!! My hubby took that one off, but I still do not understand where my son got it because he hadn’t been in the woods or anywhere with long grass, etc in a while. Another weird thing is that no one in my family has had ticks before and this year there have been three!

My son and I went fishing last week, and I sprayed Deep Woods Off all over. I am not taking any chances and I guess I will just have to smell like Off all summer. I can’t help it. Those things freak me out!! I guess I will have a large expense for this summer for buying insect repellent.

I feel like such a wimp.

    Do you have a dog? I know growing up our Chesapeake Bay retriever would go swimming daily in a pond near our house and he would bring many ticks back around the house!

    It was a summer chore to search that dog daily for those blood-suckers!

    We do have a dog, but I don’t think they are coming from him. When he is outside he is just in our yard right by the house which I do not think would be inviting to ticks (but I could be wrong).

    The tick just must have come in on some clothes and hid out until he decided to attach to my son’s head.

    Tricia, that post just creeps me out! I get completely wigged when I see a tick on someone and so far have been lucky enough to avoid having one chomp into me. But if one every does, I am going to turn into SUCH A BABY! I will totally freak!!

    I just saw this thread from 2006 Way funny, the Deep Woods is sitting in my table as I type. We’ve had bird mites all summer, and are still trying to get rid of them!

    The celebrities must never find out about our secret fragrance!

So, what do you think ?
