Jamie Bisceglia is a hero in my book. The woman was recently taken to a hospital after being bitten by an octopus on her face.
The octopus was on her face because she was trying to win a photography competition. Bisceglia is a hero because, after the embarrassing ordeal, she still submitted the photos to local news stations for their coverage of the story.
The conundrum happened on August 2nd when she happened upon some local fisherman in the Tacoma Narrows fishing derby who had accidentally caught an octopus.
Editor's Tip: Starting a photography business? Save money and buy quality used gear. You can save hundreds if you buy a used camera and used lenses, and apply those savings to investing in other gear. Better still, a great way to watch your bottom line is to sell or trade in your old gear that you no longer use. Doing so minimizes how much gear you have to keep track of, and if you sell or trade in your gear, you have some spare money to put towards upgrading your kit. It's a win-win!
She approached the fishermen with her proposition.
As soon as she placed the octopus on her face, she was bitten twice. After trying to ignore the pain for two days, she finally took herself to the emergency room where doctors gave her 3 antibiotics.
Unfortunately, the incredible pain she is in could come and go for several months, according to her doctors.
Bisceglia is now warning others not to do what she did, and she's being an awfully good sport about it.
