This last line is interesting!  I'm curious as to how frequently one gets
Ascaris in Davis CA.

Really though, it raises an interesting question of how many parasitologists
have been parasitized by interesting and exotic beasties, and whether
or not there are anecdotes worth telling in intro Parasitology courses.

(save E. vermicularis, toxo, and other relatively inocuous companions)

Please post 'em!!
