Well Friday night I was invited by one of my girlfriends to attend a polo match at the Horse Park. Deciding to be “oh so Kentucky” I thought sure this will be fun, I’ve never been to a polo match. It was quite neat, and was just like Pretty Woman, minus the hookers. I didn’t get to stomp divets (or whatever they are called) on the field because I was of course late, but I did have a fun time tailgating and eating some sort of awesome spicy feta dip and having cocktails. I was determined to meet an Englishmen atop some stallion horse, however no such luck. What I did meet you ask? 576,987 gnats, 3 dogs, and a couple horses. That’s’ right GNATS. everywhere. I am not kidding when I tell you that at all times there were gnats crawling on my arms, back, and trying to nest in my hair. I had my extensions in, up in some sort of side messy bun thing because it was dreadfully humid that day and there was no way I could wear it down. Well apparently this was prime real estate for the little pesky mother effers because I had so many gnats in my hair I wanted to scream. I high tailed it out of there as soon as the polo match was over and we went back to my friend Emily’s to take care of the pest situation in my hair. It was disgusting. I have no idea why there were so many gnats but holy bug infestation I was NOT ok with it. The silver lining-at least they didn’t bite. Yuck, it makes me squirm just thinking about it. Anyways, here are some pics from the night.
Chrissy trying to pick burrowing gnats out of my hair. SO gross.
What did I learn? Next time, take one of these.
