Diary Entry 15

Tony and I slept in the same hut next to each other in separate beds. At least, we did until someone decided to play a joke and put a couple berries in the center of my bed. I didn’t realize the berries were there until I started to feel the ants bite me. I jumped out of bed and stripped naked. I was trying to get all the ants off and prevent further biting. Tony thought my little ant dance was funny. I didn’t think it was funny and when I get the chance Tony is going to pay. Tony swears he did not put the berries in my bed but I have my doubts. I had to remind him a couple of times yesterday not to eat in the hut.
The ants were very tiny but they left a couple dozen welts on my legs and abdomen. I made Tony share his bed because mine was inhabited by a colony of ants. I told him if he laid one hand on me during the night he was a dead man. I think he knew I was mad. He was a gentleman all night long. Neither one of us got much sleep. The ant bites itched and stung. I couldn’t get comfortable. I tossed and turned most of the night. Palesa gave me some salve to put on the bites this morning.
