A deep rectangular flap had been cut into the back of my leg - bigger than my leg actually was - and had been folded down to show that the interior was filled with fuzzy white mold. I frowned and cleared it away, to find that what was remaining was bright red muscle, more like a beef steak than human musculature. There was an extra little glob of flesh that shouldn't have been there; I thought "WTF?" and was able to pull it away. As soon as it touched the countertop, it fizzled and boiled away like a cross between a salted slug and a pimple. "Perhaps that white stuff is what was making me so itchy," I thought.
