Okay, so it's got twelve legs...I still think it looks more like a tick than anything else. Living in the woods next to the lake, I had a good many ticks in my youth. Having dogs, I still see more of them than I'd prefer (this season's household total: 5). In 5th grade, I made it a point of finding ticks that needed a trip to the school nurse only during science class (saving them through the day until that point, if necessary). It was obnoxious and without provocation. If you're still out there somewhere, Mrs. Funchess, I apologize.
