Giacometti’s Tick

I mean my somewhat strange big brother, Giacometti, and not Alberto who might have had ticks and must have been at least a little strange if he thought his dog sculpture was a self-portrait. Giaco got this big, fat, round tick on his face just above his right eye. It was such a noteworthy tick that I thought the least I could do was share it with you. So here it is, fat, healthy, and happy feeding on Giaco:

My dad took that tick out and it was still healthy, head intact and all. Of course he tried to get photographs of it but he said it was a hard tick to photograph, I guess it moved too much or something. Anyway you will at least get the idea from this photo:

Just in case your wondering what that surface is that he is on, it is one of my mom’s indexing books! I hope she will get over it. 🙂

Have a good day.
