Oh yesssss! I do remember the awful itch all over my little eleven-years-old body. The two only good things I remember about that is the peanut candies that my aucle gave me and the time out of school ;)

Beautiful illo. I love it.

oh, but to scratch feels soooooooooooooo goooooooooood! i had them as a child on HALLOWEEN,for pete's sake, so the double whammy of not going out to collect free candy, and not being able to scratch was unbearable, and just too much to ask of a child! but i always scratch my mosquito bites...

This is too funny! There are spots everywhere! It's over the top! Yes...I remember having the chicken pox as a child - right before I was to be a bunny in a dance recital. I had to miss the recital, but my mother let me wear the bunny costume around the house if I promised not to scratch:> This is great. I always have a laugh when I visit, and I leave with a smile:>>>>
