Sugar Bites

While swinging recently, Gracie asked me if I knew what sugar bites were. I guessed, "Are they a new cereal?"
"No!", laughed Gracie while rolling her eyes.
"Are they some new kind of candy?", I guessed again.
"No!", laughed Gracie even more while looking a bit perplexed at me.
"I give up. What are they?", I said.
"These bumps on my legs.... sugar bites", She explained. "What are they?"
Ok, now I got it. Sugar bites ..... aka Chigger bites. She wanted me to tell her what they were, not guess what they were! So, I explained the bite of the chigger.
