Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite!


As Chicagoans we have several things that could interrupt our eight hours of beauty sleep on a regular work night.



These being:


  • Lincoln Park Trixies who are stumbling home from the Tin Lizzy, ears shot from the loud music, talking loudly on cell phones

  • The bass of a TV or stereo (undetermined) from your neighbors

  • The El... if you are fortunate enough to be close enough that it shakes your building

  • Construction from the ridiculously overpriced condo complex they are building across from you...

  • Crazy, oversized cats (or dogs) who want to eat.... again....

  • Snoring boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife

  • Your insanely over-analytical self... aka self-induced stress

Thought that was a large enough list? Add one more...


Biting Bed Bugs. I kid you not... apparently they are infiltrating Chicago beds one. at. a. time. And the worst part of the Sun-Times article today is that they have no solution to this problem. Just reporting that it's a problem. Excellent.


I love when primary objective of news if to freak me out. If the bugs aren't biting... now I can worry about the bugs biting. And just recall that pretty picture they included in the article.


Sleep tight, kids. Don't let the bed bugs bite.... fo real.

I saw the Field Museum tweet that they had a bug expert if any media needed info/insight... and guess what? this morning (i think) there was the Field on NBC5!
