In school we were raised to be ladies, they taught us to walk with grace, we learned to show temporary elegance. I know it all and use it at times, but not so today.
Today I am not graceful. I am a mess, can’t hold my posture, and seem to have lost it all. I am flinging my arms in the air, scratch my foot with the other and rub my face against my shoulder. I can’t hold still, I have to give in.
It started last night while we were watching TV; I could hear it and sat there helpless like a mouse in the trap. How do you fight something that you can’t see? I felt it just a minute later, it had bitten me -of course- and not just once.
There was a Mosquito in the house and it wasn’t a friendly one. It was out to get me and me only. They are never interested in my husband; they are biased and obviously, have some gender issues.
The torture continued today in the morning. It has bitten me at least 10 times and by now I should be able to find it rather quickly, because by it has to be the size of an elephant.
It’s trying to suck me dry. I bet it’s too heavy to fly now and is crawling down on the floor. (No wonder I can’t find that damn thing). This itching is insane, it drives me mad.
Mosquitos only exist to be food for others, that’s at least what Wikipedia said and they seem to know everything.
Mosquitos, like all other life forms, are part of a complex food web. Many fish feed on mosquito larvae, which are aquatic, and plenty of birds and spiders and other insects feed on the adults. Dragonflies and damselflies love mosquitoes. Frogs eat adult mosquitoes, tadpoles eat the larvae.
“Hey Mosquito, newsflash…you are the food, not me, you got it all backward.” (Dumb insect).
According to Wikipedia, we seem to have the wrong pets. We have dogs, what we need are spiders, dragonflies, frogs, maybe a toad or two.
I need to go for a walk; maybe I can convince a dragonfly to follow me home. Later I will shop online; I bet I can order a frog somewhere.
