Bear is watching a YouTube video on how to do first aid on a leech bite. The man in the video used hydrogen peroxide to clean the wound. Bear falls apart at antiseptic wipes. He is not stoic. I hope he never gets a leech bite.
Fortunately bear may get sidetracked by maps. School had them do a project where they worked out the miles between various towns on a round trip of England - Manchester, Birmingham, London etc, twelve places in total. Bear got happily engrossed in that, then last night got caught up in a huge atlas of mine. It was £10 second hand about twenty years ago and it is a proper OS, very detailed, set of maps of the UK. Bear loved it.
I would rather deal with a pile of maps than leeches.
