My leg is asleep, but not in that way that hurts really bad,
the kind that just feels cool to try to walk around on and scratch your toes and stuff. . .
and then, 5 minutes later it feels like millions of ants are crawling around inside your leg,
which isn't so bad, but
when your attempt to get your circulation going again by say, lifting said leg,
the ants all crawl into your blood stream and release fire-ant venom into your system,
creating an altogether well, uncomfortable situation. . .
especially when you're in a room full of people you just met and you stand up at the table or whatever and attempt play it cool
'What? Oh, nothing, my leg's just fallen asleep- it's nothing, I'm fine, thanks'
and really you're attempting to hold back the swearing and grimacing. . .
which rarely works.

oh shit, here it comes.
