Chigger Allah

In Amharic, the national language of I’tyopia, the phrase chigger allah means “there’s a problem.”  Chigger allah or chigger yellum are two of the most common phrases in the language.

Last week, I was able to say chigger allah, not because I had  chigger, but because I actually had a real chigger!

Lucky for me, my sweet friend Nora was willing to perform surgery.  And now, at least, I think I’m chigger free.
