I didn't realize that......

I had a pet Iratus Bug on my front porch.

Today was another scorcher topping out in the 80's so this evening when I got home I put Kenzie to bed and decided to kick back and surf the net from the front porch. I was sitting there minding my own business watching the sunset and cursing the annoying kids next door, when suddenly my neck started KILLING me. I reached up and touched the right side of my neck just about where my neck meets my shoulder, and felt a HUGE bug bite forming.

This is what it looks like:

Please excuse my weird chin thing I've got going on here!

How else would you explain this gnarly looking thing than one of these:
