Why I was mean when I was a kid...

Today a friend of mine posted about how her sweet little 6-year-old got a rash on her legs from sitting "criss-cross applesauce".  Apparently, this little girl is allergic to the souls of her shoes. 

Suddenly that brought back for me a time when my little sister got a rash. On her legs. 

Only it wasn't a cute little rash.  These were big ol' boils.  My older sister and I were particularly grossed out.  I think my older sister started it, but we got little sis to believe that inside the boils were some kind of bug--a beetle maybe--and when they burst a bug was going to come walking down her leg.  My little sis was completely freaked out.

And I don't know if that was even the worst thing we did to her...
