It's been a while since I've had a tick on me, but the next time I do, I'm going to gently tweezer the little devil off of my skin and plop its unsquashed carcass into a jigger of gin or other alcohol for pickling and storage.

Or with or without any of these symptoms, one's joints feel as if an imp was beating on them with a ball-peen hammer.
