Don’t Let The Bed Bugs Bite

The Greek Girl doesn't roll with bed bugs

It used to be such a cute little saying from my Dad and Mom every single night, “Good nite our sweet little Ava, and don’t let the bed bugs bite.” After hearing that I would then march up to my room and get ready for bed. It should be noted that it would only be at bedtime that I would finally take off my sneakers. I would then put on my pajamas and climb into bed. Yup, I would keep them on for as long as I could…you have heard of security blanket issues with some kids? Well I had security sneaker issues.

So I would be laying in bed, in my favorite purple snap-up flannel pj’s, the ones complete with feet in them, the trap bottom with even more snaps,  and lots of gold stars all over them. With all of that purple and gold I looked like a mini Los Angeles Lakers’ mascot.

Then I would fall fast asleep, dreaming of someday becoming a rock star, without even a thought of bed bugs – after all it was just Mom and Dad being silly. Bed Bugs, Schmed Smugs, they were not real, were they?

But now a days if I went to bed and someone said, “Good nite Ava and don’t let the bed bugs bite,”  there is no way this Greek Girl would ever be able to fall asleep. It would be too late. The thought of bed bugs would have filled my little noggin – I would then get all itchy and junk and then I wouldn’t be able to relax enough to fall asleep. Whether there were actually any BB’s sharing the sheets with me or not, it didn’t matter. It was too late – the thought of them was already out there occupying space in my coconut.

Here is a fun cartoon I put together that is all about bed bugs. I hope you enjoy it.

Have a blessed day.

    I’ve been fortunate enough to work in a bed bug-free hotel these last few years!
