my coveralls- then another- then another- then I realized there were
about a hundred inside my coveralls- they got through the little
openings on the sides. I started screeming (being very emotional like I
am)- I then riped off all my clothes and ran through the woods buck
naked like a screeming maniac- as they chased me.
