If it itches

          "You have a sensitive skin?"
          "Yes, I have. Very."
          "I suspected that that was the reason why you were behaving like a one-armed paperhanger with the hives. Watching you at work, I was reminded of the young lady of Natchez, whose clothes were all tatters and patches. In alluding to which, she would say, "Well, Ah itch, and wherever Ah itches, Ah scratches."

(from Cocktail Time, by Sir Pelham Wodehouse)
